Tsmg Mag Can Wooden Dividers For Sale
Posted 10 November 2004 - 06:14 PM
version of his cardboard dividers that allows an M728 Fuze can to be used to
transport and store up to 20 TSMG box magazines.
In fact, I made a whole little system, which includes the wooden dividers, spacers
and a piece of carpet to go in the bottom of the can, a piece of carpet to glue to
the top of the can, and polystyrene spacers that allow the 20 rnd box mags to sit
even with the 30 rnd box mags.
I made a small number of these in addition to the one I kept for myself, and I am
offering these for sale for the incredibly inexpensive price of $39.95 + shipping.
I expect shipping to run around $8.00 for FedEx ground.
The can is not included since the cost to double ship it from CTD to me and then
to you is an unnecessary expense. You can buy these cans for $7.97 at: CTD Fuze Can Page
Each system comes with 10 polystyrene spacers, but if you want more, let me know.
This system is very finely crafted. Each wooden divider consists of 29 pieces glued
together with 48 glued dado joints. Five of the pieces are 1/8 plywood and 24 are
3/8 solid pieces. The dividers measure approximately 5 1/2 inches wide by 11 inches
long by 7 1/2 inches deep, and slips smoothly into the M728 fuze can. Using the provided
bottom spacers and bottom carpet, and with the top carpet glued to the inside top of the
can lid, when the can lid is shut, the magazines are held in place. (Carpet glue, contact cement,
or latex/silicone calk works good to glue the top piece of carpet.)
Each divider is signed, numbered, and dated. These things were a major pain in the
ass to make, so I will not be making any more of them!
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing one of these limited
Sales will be first come, first serve. PayPal payment is preferred but money orders
(or checks if I know you )will be accepted.
I've provided 5 pictures of the system below.

BTW the post on the Northridge magazines was appreciated. They are a tad expensive but worth it.

east 100 hours making nine sets of them. I came up with nine, because that's how
many I could make with a single piece of 1/8" plywood. I really couldn't begin to charge
what they are worth in terms of the time I put into them. If I valued my time at only
$25.00/hour, I would have had to charge close to $300.00 a set to get a fair price for
my time and materials.
I love the idea of injection molding a bunch, but I can't imagine the market would
support enough sales to recover the cost of the mold and production run.
Another possibility would be to make a relatively simple mold that could be used
with polyurethane casting resins.

7 1/2 inches tall
5 7/16 inches wide
10 15/16 inches long
Vertical corners have about a 1/4 inch roundover.
(The inside dimensions of the fuze box are 5.5 x 11 inches with rounded vertical corners)
The five longitudinal dividers are 1/8 inch plywood.
The transverse dividers are 5/16 inches thick.
The interior pockets are 1 13/64 inches wide and 1 13/16 inches long.
You should probably double check that that all adds up.

mag can dividers were not designed large enough
to store magazines upside down. I guess I incorrectly
assumed the picture showing right side up storage was sufficient to
show the operation of the dividers.
I wanted relatively tight
pockets to prevent excessive rattling around and didn't feel upside down
storage was a good idea for a wooden storage unit anyway since there
would might be some scraping against the front mag lip and might also possily
be some unwanted ressure on the front lip as the magazines were inserted,
removed and stored.
Brickyard, you might make a note of this issue regarding the dimensions I
gave you. Upside storage can be accomodated by making he transverse
elements slightly thinner if that is something that many people might find

of time and a piece of junk cardboard and no more skill than that required
to read a ruler has morphed into an industrial-scale, injection-molded,
"Manhattan" project requiring tolerances out to 3 decimal places!
I can only say... FUBAR!
