PostSubject: TROTLINE STORAGE   Mon Mar 19, 2007 5:39 pm

I take a 5 gal plastic bucket and drill a 3/8 hole in the center bottom and get a piece of all thread and secure it with 2 nuts and washers cut the allthread so that it is about 2'' taller than the bucket and slide an actual 5 pound barbell weihgt down the allthread and secure it with a nut and washer ( the weight is to make the bucket bottom heavy to keep it from dumping over) and then i take a piece of treated 3/4 plywood and cut it about an 1'' larger in diameter than the bucket so you can use it for a lid and because it is a little bigger around than the bucket you wont get snagged by a hook. I also take a router and route a circle in the plywood the same size as the top of the bucket so it fits down a little over the hooks and also keeps it centered and when you get all of your stagings in the bucket you can secure the lid with a wing nut. I keep 200 stagings in my bucket and I hardly ever have a problem.

Here is a few pics
