Lee, when Hodgeman replaced a leaky pair of waders for me they sent an extra belt.  If you think it will do what you need PM me your details and I’ll throw it in the mail.

Cman,

 

     I impressed with your baskets interior lighting system.   I have a recommendation for your lighting system, apply some red nail polish to the lensed area of the lights so you become a bit more incognito. This is an old astronomy telescope trick that was used on flash lights to preserve your night vision.

 

Mini sound system is next , with a robo cam.

 

Regards,

Cman, I picked up one of those stools that you made your stripping basket out of , it seemes small , I’ve made all my stripping baskets up to this point using plastic wash tubs , bungees , a few line seperators & I was good to go. How does the one you made work for you ? Thanks Bill J

Try a cherry/fruit picking basket.     Shaped and larger then the Ikea step stool.

Looks like you used an end mill to shape out your line tray. Or maybe you were a Pettern Maker in former times.

Actually used a template to trace the outline with a black Sharpie and then I used one of these attachments on my Dremel Tool to follow the profile and do the belt cutouts.   Adjust the depth of the cutter to 1/8" longer than the depth of cut required.   You need a stead hand, (save the Sam Adams until after the project),  and it comes out remarkably well.    Finish with rough and fine sandpaper and you'd swear it was molded that way.

I like the fruit picking basket. That looks more comfortable than the Tupperware I used to use. Very nice build. What are the cones that you used?

 

Thanks
