Stab-Proof Hobby Knife Stand

Apr 23, 2014 No Comments by

Capping your hobby knife after each use is a pain, but not as big a pain as stabbing the bejeebers out of yourself on an uncapped hobby knife—or having it roll off the bench and into your thigh. Ouch! To go capless safely, build a stand out of an M&M Minis tube (or anything similar) and piece of wood or anything else sturdy and flat. Glue the tube upright, or get fancy and cut it at an angle. Put a piece of foam in the bottom of the tube to protect the blade’s fine tip.

About the author

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
