Makeblock SMT-reel holder

When you can fix a problem in 5 minutes – do so directly!
In this case, a shipment of reels was uncoiling all over the place.
Something had to be done!

I used some Makeblock parts to build a quick reel-stand. A simple square base with a holder – like a large toilet roll holder – is now keeping the coils.
Or maybe more like a sticky-tape-holder

The blue strip is a tiny bar to keep the spillover plastic protection cover out of the way. Not used as such (yet) in this picture – but you can weave the empty plastic coil back under the blue strip to keep the plastic snakes off your work area.
