    Thumbs up The "50c" Hair Stacker

    I made this stacker today cause the ones I own are too small and very tedious to operate. The hole on my Dr Slick is 1.1cm wide,this one has a hole diameter of 1.8cm.

    Ingredients:

    1.UTC bobbin - I used my Dremel to holow it out but also grinded the edge off on one side.
    2.Craft store "spool" - gotto have holes on each side.
    3.50c coin - the coin in glued on it's side and pushed level from behind/underneath into the spool.It could not have fitted better.
    4.2mm foam - glued and stuck ontop of the coin for the noise factor when banging.

    Not very pretty but it works,AK would've been proud of me.

    Well done!! Brilliant!

    Me likes ppl who resist the urge to go buy and rather create!

    Now for the shocker.. my favourite hair stacker is..... one of swambo's old nice and thick lipstick holders!

    Took some effort to clean out all the sticky stuff, but in the end you have an excellent hair stacker!

    Just make sure she doesnt catch you redhanded!
