Great job! And easy to read and see where everything goes -- which is getting more important these days! Nice clean layout.
Another small job that makes a big impact. Keep em' coming!  :bow: :bow: :bow: :clap:

Hi Bob,

                   That is a smart looking stand. Like the construction method using the angle, very clever.


                                                                   Cheers David

  Hi Bob , nice job  :drool: :drool:, much better than having them in a pot and hunting through every time you need one  ( like me  :palm: ) , better markings than most proper stands too , you normally cannot see the sizes they are that small.

 Cheers Mick

Nice job, looks good   :thumbup: I guess your numbers are self adhesive backed  from Smiths or Hobby craft sheets (no connection)?
