HD Test Tube Rack by PropellerScience Oct 14, 2012

Description

I finally got around to making a test tube rack for all those tubes of ABS glue laying around on my work bench. HD stands for Heavy Duty, as in workbench tough. The tubes are 12X100mm vacuum tubes I got at UWSWAP for a couple bucks per 100. The holes were set at 14mm, but printed out at about 13.7mm.
While seven holes might seem odd, it was originally meant to be the bottom of a two tier rack for an even dozen tubes, but I didn't like the way it looked. On the positive side seven tubes are just enough to spell ROY G. BIV.

I have found that the best ABS glue container are old nail polish bottles, as they have also the small brush to apply the glue :)

the test tube rack though is superb for my tubes :)

 Except for the labels on each one I think these would work.

the tube you have for ABS 'goop' are a good idea!
I've been scrounging old small jars.
i definitly use abs goop lots! I will have to search out those lab blood sample tubes. They are a good small size.

Cool, looks great! Did you make your own ABS glue? ABS bits and acetone?

 Yes, just bits of filament with acetone.
