Neat idea, seen it before and always asked why I never thought of that.... But I have to ask, how do you store them when you're not using yours? Hang them, stack on a shelf, or do like a buddy of mine did, toss them on the work bench?


In a while, Chet.

Pretty cool idea, I can't remember if it was on here or if someone was telling me about it, but a pair of old brake shoes will work too

the only time there not in use is when we pull a car out and sweep but they stack up one on top of the other very nicely,in the paint booth they help keep the wheel covers on ,without themthe hose always pulls them off.thats how i teach my helpers to use cutting torch

the weight is a good thing actualy,pvc sounds good too but im not tripping over pvc every time i turn around id have to buy it then trip over wheels again and not have anything to practice cutting on for my helpers just thought it might work for some oldschoolers (if its free its for me)
