Default Re: Improvising with Household Items.

I'm currently working on a KB FB10 'Toaster' and needed a way of supporting the chassis upside-down whilst fault-finding. A cardboard wine box, weighted down by a house brick inside, provides a stable chassis holder and costs nothing.

I find myself using discarded cardboard boxes and packaging materials like polystyrene for all sorts of purposes nowadays.
