Incredibly useful addition to shop

I just mounted these three things on the wall next to my epoxy station and can't tell you how nice it's been. So thought I'd share.

1. A roll towel dispenser. Great way to grab a little or a lot of cheap paper towel for quick and dirty cleanups.

2. Large (16oz) paper cup dispenser.

3. Small (4oz) paper cup dispenser.

All three less than$100. Buy the cups and 8" towel rolls in bulk and watch boat build itself! Well...

Does the large dispenser work with those red Solo cups? I buy those in bulk at Costco for epoxy-mixing purposes.

Jon,

I can't see why the 12 oz plastic solos wouldn't be fine. The spec says 7-12 oz cups. My cups are 16 oz and work great. Mine are paper but shouldn't make a difference at all.

To me it's like electric trunk closers. They seemed silly to me at first, but now I use all the time. Having all those cups up off a table or shelf, nice and neat, dust-free...it's nice.

As an aside...I used the solos for a long while and just recently switched to paper cups with flat bottoms and sides. Much easier to scrape epoxy out and stir. Well..."much" easier might be a stretch. Let's just say, I like em better and think worth a try.

Regards,
Martin
