Bend Recipe Holder

I wanted something that would keep the bend sheets handy. They always seem to be out of reach, fall on the floor or just not in the right spot. I had an old magnetic indicator base laying around, so a couple of drilled holes in a piece of flat bar, add a clamp and now the papers stay right where I need them in easy view and not falling on the floor.

My 2005 xp laptop is only for BT and tech files... the bender is mobile so it goes anywhere. Dont tell me your bender is bolted down
I see plenty of catch-alls, i mean flat surfaces in your shop... do like i do and kindly scoot them to another catch-all

Its only bolted down when I need it for a project or should I say its bolted down until I need more room in that area. My catch alls are all caught up, I need to do a Fall cleanup and recycle and/or dump run. No I don't have any prototype stuff laying around to get rid of.
