    Bottle holder, spill prevention

    Lightweight, narrow-based plastic bottles are so unstable and it is easy to spill quite expensive contents! Perhaps that is what the manufacturers want you to do! Well, I have done it far too often. These forged ovals help to prevent knocking over a bottle when the top is removed for making repeated applications. I am going to make some more to fit other bottles. They are just tight enough to fit without undue distortion. The one on the right, which I did first, has cling film around it because the the plastic is also brittle! Why?....

    Philip, that is a great idea the snug fit helps to put the center of gravity where it belongs, on the bottom.
    One thing that could be done would be to tack weld a thin sheet or plate to the bottom of the ring then use those stick on felt pads to prevent marring of surfaces
