Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Wire Storage Solution!

159 007 Näkymät

Adam tackles a shop shelf build that he's been putting off for a long time--finally reorganizing his loose wire storage that sits above his Sortimo hardware boxes. It's a chance for him to implement his philosophy for a storage system that houses and dispenses rolls of wire--that doesn't mount the spools along a dowel. As you'll see, it's a solution that's as elegant as it is satisfying!

  • hmmm. To be honest, I'm not a fan of the v-trough. I've worked with lots of wire and lots of different types of wire over the years and I still like the steel rod idea. But it's his shop and if that works best for his application then great.

  • Nice! Thanks! And the real reason you hold the camera up for a "sickening" run through the shop is to show off that cool shop! Walls and shelves everywhere for everything you need, and don't, silly me, of course you need it! And we are sick from jealousy! ;-) Sickening

  • You could still do wire on a spindle. You could put magnets on each side of the spindle, this way the spindle is easily removed and replaced.

  • OK, I really like this, and may need to build something like this... I have built and hated spindle style storage for both wire and labels (for work). My wire at home now is on an old steel library shelf, stacked on their sides.

Felt like a warm summer day to me coming from Finland :) Later in the day the heat started being too much for me while locals obviously enjoyed the cool spring afternoon...

  • Adam, I have a question that I’m sure you’ve been asked before and I’m sure many others would love to see a video with the answer: What is your end goal for your shop? Will you ever reach a point in organization and capability where you can stand back and say ‘I’m finally finished’ or will your projects continue to evolve into smaller and smaller projects of organization and detail? I’ve watched every one day build you’ve posted and they are a godsend on traffic filled commutes. Keep them coming!

  • Anyone else know that his towers of spools were doomed to fall over and wonder why he needed to have a single stack for each when they had already been measured? Hilarious! Also agree not enough detail to know how to do it. I would start with at least showing us the sketch close up. Enjoyable as always but not enough info to be able to build it.

  • I kind of feel like the most interesting part of this build, where the actual troughs get built, is hidden in the timelapse. Now we got 75% measuring and muttering without any clue of what's going on, and before you know it the final product is done! There were also some repeated lines in the final part that weren't cut out in editing. Edit: gathering and cutting materials for the troughs starts at 17:49. The actual assembly is a timelapse between 19:03 and 19:35.

  • His build videos now have too much time lapse. They contain several sequences where it would be better to have Adam explain his options and decisions. We like when he talks about things. Take a look at some early 2020 formats, and go back to those please.

    Chris CallisChris Callis26 päivää sitten
  • Cool idea! Perhaps using a long piece of brush-type weatherstripping to hold the tails instead of holes in the palstic would get you a little more flexibility with the type and number of spools. Would also be easier to feed through the tail when replacing a spool.

  • Adam, I know its not something great to think about but i was wondering if you have a plan/ someone you are going to hand the shop down to when your gone? i have few things i care about and want specific people to have /specific things to be done with them when I'm gone. really weird question it was just something i was wondering about. thank you

  • I finally did this with my glitter and tapes about a month ago and I Have Never Been Happier! I am curious as to why you didn't do the same storage setup for your tape though, It seems like it would free up a lot of room for your infrastructure if you did. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  • 5:20 I hate being a safety goblin, and I've made a comment like this before on other videos, but dear lord do these cuts make me cringe. No pushsticks or blocks, crosscutting a long piece of plywood against the fence and especially with NO riving knife or splitter. Adam is a cautious and talented guy but this is just asking for karma to throw a piece of wood in your face from kickback.

    kevin bixlerkevin bixler26 päivää sitten
  • Love the solution but I think I've got one thing to add (that you may not experience for a while). With the wire tail dispensing holes you absolutely have a nice clean point to grab the wire and pull just what you need however as that spool unwinds the tail's natural position will change from where it uncoils, this will make it more difficult at points in the spools life to dispense wire. Also when you replace the spools with new spools if the thickness of spool is different you may wind up finding that the holes are not in a useful position for a specific spool you shelve. My solution would be to remove the holes but in place leave a slot the entire length of the shelf (or many slots along the length like a dotted line). This way the spools can dispense as needed, you can still have your tidy tails and you don't run across the problem of the holes being misaligned.

    Séan BrownSéan Brown26 päivää sitten
  • I feel the one thing missing would be a heavy duty scissor hanging on the side, for cutting off the length of wire when needed.

  • Adam, would you ever consider making something out of the leather you have protecting your work bench. A carry bag, book cover, wallet, or something with so much character and history would be something that I think you would enjoy.

  • Thanks for the kind words about the Detroit Fox! For years (decades) until my recent retirement, I was the chief engineer at The Fox, and quite proud of the work we did to restore and maintain the country's largest "movie palace". When you and Jamie were there, attempts were made to go through channels and offer you a tour of our archaic technology (live-front slate switchboards, huge ventilation fans, air washers, etc.) but it was not to be. Often such offers never make it through the gauntlet of officialdom, and we were too polite to approach either of you directly, as you were obviously busy. Que sera, sera! But if you ever have any questions about the building or its 1928 technology, you have but to ask. Stay safe.
