Default My New PROP Box

I put this off for years and it was about time to start taking care of the the props that I have collected. ( no more tossing them into my tool box. LOL )
Here is what I came up with and it came out OK (better then I ever imagined).
It is 13x12x3 and will hold 32 gas props and has a nice pouch for my prop charts, prop nuts,and prop balancer. Also has a strap to carry it if my hands are full.

Same here - 32 props is a great (tough) field box.

Issue I have often is how best to secure the props. I am looking for the option of relocating pegs to accommodate different prop sizes (65mm props Vs 90mm props for example). I will probably end up with a threaded plate

But that is a great looking/functioning box!!

I use these things.....got them at the container store. Just put some foam in the bottom. They are inter-locking for stacking.
