Happy Weekend My Friends!
It's getting quite chilly here this weekend so I guess you folks down in the South and Midwest are sending us your recent frigid temps...This coming week it looks like it will barely get out of the 30's with some precipitation in the forecast . Time to get the sand and salt ready and make sure the snow blower will fire up.
Well, the day has finally come when I am able to offer the first batch of Roll Bars!
So what is a Roll Bar? It's a small spool type accessory designed to carry tape, cord or other roll goods in a convenient and tiny package. I created these primarily with tape in mind as it seems like I am in constant need of a piece of tape for sealing something or for making a film reminder tag on a camera for instance. There are literally tons of uses for a little piece of tape as I keep finding the more I carry these. Just yesterday I needed to leave a note for someone and was able to stick it to their door.
The Roll Bars are designed to carry any 1 inch wide tape so you could carry electrical tape, masking tape, gaffer tape, packing tape or any other kind that you regularly use. I made the opening between the protective roll ends slightly over 1 inch so that you could rip a piece of duct tape in half lengthwise and still have a little wiggle room in case the halves weren't perfectly even. It's nice having those spool ends on there so that you keep the edges of the tape roll clean and they prevent adhesive from getting all over your hands or pockets.
As for capacity, I can fit 36 inches of cloth style tape or more of thin painter's blue tape with ease. For 550 paracord with the 7 strand core intact I can get 32 inches on there or more if I take the core out. The rubber o-ring adds additional grip to the diamond knurl and gives you a little bumper to keep the noise down when attached to your gear. It also works in conjunction with the small milled groove so the band can act as a keeper for a cord end.
The Roll Bars are turned from bars of 303 stainless steel, just under 2 inches overall length and 3/4 inch in diameter so they are quite compact indeed. They have been well tumbled to
give a beautiful vintage style finish and they look like something that
might have come off your granddad's workbench 50 years ago. A pair of o-rings are included so there is an extra one and also a NiteIze S clip which allows for handy attachment to keys or gear bag.
This is a tiny batch of Roll Bars so one per customer on them please. If there is a big demand I may make another run of them in the next few weeks. They will be $45 each plus shipping and the purchase link as always is right below....have a great rest of the weekend folks and stay warm!
Thanks everyone! I will do up the packages for these in the morning.
