This idea came due to difficult to turn pieces when painting or staining them. I use to hang the pieces with some wire, but sometimes you just can´t do it.
Made with 3/4 MDF leftovers, 5/16 dowels and M5 allen screw, the nut has a nylon insert that makes it not get lose. Between the two boards, there are two large washers made from 0,3mm PTFE sheet that makes it turn very smoothly. I hope you like it.

great idea Sergio… You’re right, hanging stuff by wire just doesn’t always work out, this is an awesome piece, and perfect name! It even looks like you could use either side.

Brilliant idea and a great name on a useful tool in the shop. You might as well get a patent for it.

Have your say...
