    Tim Pettigrew's Tools
    Hi Paul, The holders are as you have deduced, made of plastic pipe or ducting which in this instance are 54 mm outside diameter. The crucial measurement is the thickness of the pipe wall. The thickness I used was 1.5mm which means that the slit opens widely very easily (I was fumbling a bit in the movie clip, but that was just me being clumsy and not a difficulty opening the slit in the pipe). I tried using thicker plastic pipe and found that anything above about 2mm was too inflexible. All the tube is doing is supporting the 2 metre long roll and as long as the pipe opens easily along the slit there is no problem.

    500+ Homemade Tool Plans

    Congratulations Tim Pettigrew, your Sandpaper Dispenser is our Best Documented Build winner for February 2017!

    Not the most complex tool, but what really stood out among the detailed documentation on your website was the interactive 3D scale animation.

    Some other nicely-documented builds from February: an Adjustable Laser Cutter Platform by scorch, a Valve Holding Collet by tonyfoale, a Sheetmetal Bending Brake by Tuomas, an Engraving Pantograph by brianhw, and an Air Compressor Water Trap by jniolon. There were also two nice builds from Metaler: Lathe Back Stop and Small Boring Head. Be sure to follow the links to Metaler's site for additional documentation and technical drawings.


    Tim - please confirm your email address via PM to me, and I'll get your $35 award sent out, via your choice of PayPal, Amazon, or bitcoin.

    Congrats again!

    Here are all of our previous monthly Best Documented Build winners:

    Hi,
    I didn't check your site, I fully agree, this 3D view is stunning, could you explain what's the tool used for that ?
    Well deserved !

    Many thanks Christophe and Bobs, yes I have used the free version of Sketchup. After creating a Sketchup model, there are several ways in which you can include it in your own website.
