Piet's new ridge hanger
I was still enjoying my hanger with grooves but I liked to try out something else. This hanger is equipped with ridges made of flexible PVC hose material, I used a double layer for extra thick ridges. Hobby suggested to use a hinge like the BIB and two screws at the front. With the hinge on it doesn’t work correctly yet. Without the hinge it works really good.
For anyone interested in building a similar hanger it definately takes a while to put this together. If this doesn’t discourage you here are some instructions.
PVC tubing with a thickness of 3.5mm
At least 30cm of PVC hose
A piece of rope or a strap if you prefer that
A bunch of screws (just look at the pics :p )
This time I made the sides 4.8 x 10 cm, cut the sides out of the PVC tubing and flatten them in the oven, if you don’t have a tool for drilling holes you can use a soldering iron, the bottom ridges are 4 x 6 cm and go around the sides, the other ridges are about 1.2 x 6 cm.
