    Cheap Automotive Wiring Organizer.

    Keeping a selection of wiring gauges and colors organized got to be a real rat's nest. I came up with this cheap organizer/dispenser using scrap lumber, cardboard and a trash picked aluminum tent pole.

    I cut disc's out of cardboard (with a 3" center hole) and hot glued them to a 3" diameter cardboard tube. The end stacks have holes just big enought to pass the aluminum tube.

    I added screw eyes to pass the wire through when unreeling it. Keeps it from going free range on me.

    If you look at the bottom of the holder you can see there is room for three different gauges with 8 different colors.
