for those of us who don’t have a local jewelry supply shop, another advantage of shopping the hardware / home improvement store is that we can get things the same day we need them – and without paying for shipping!
Look in the sporting goods section of Wal-Mart and you can find a box that holds 6 rolls of fishing line. You thread the line through the holes at the front and it keeps the line neatly on the roll while you measure out the amount you need. I have fire line, stretchy jewelry line, and thin cording in mine.
If you use line that’s too large to thread through the holes, just pop out the rubber grommet. I also found a plastic (gray with purple sections) tackle box that has different sized sections that fit snugly against the lid and each other, so there is no space for small beads or findings to slip into another compartment. Each compartment is removable so you can use the ones you need and keep the lid closed.
Real handy to avoid accidental spillage. It’s compact and great for carry along projects. I believe both items are made by Plano.I hope you find this helpful. I welcome any suggestions that could help all of us.
