Do you have a wire dispenser rack?

Hey all,

I was just looking around trying to find something to keep all my spools of wire organized.    Not just a rack, but something to keep the spools from coming unwound.     Kinda like this.

What do you recommend?

What about a wooden or cardboard box big enough to stand them up like on the rack you linked with some small holes drilled in the side to pull the wire through?

I’m assuming you’re looking for something you can whip up on the cheap, if not just pick up the rack you linked or something like it.

These are interesting to keep the spools from unwinding. It would make any rod style rack work without having anything else and you’d have them under control I bet.

Problem is, I never buy enough to have spools. Usually only 10' at a time, or 20' at the most. I think you should make one.

KKW, those bands are not a bad idea.

Comfy, if I do make my own I will stop by to use your CNC plasma cutter LOL!

 

I dont always get a spool with my wire either, but I have a back up plan for that.

The cardboard box looks the best of all—if you want more durable make it out of plywood—I like the idea of being able to put it away on the shelf/in cabinet when not needed
