My brushes have been in single stands on my bathroom counter. I was looking for a way to reduce the footprint of my brushes while storing them correctly and as an added feature insure equal rotation in use. Finally, I decided to try this and it seems to answer all the problems.

Yes but you have to be over 40 to know that. Over 50 to remember using one.

Wonder if that design could be made more aesthetically pleasing.

You can also buy 3/9ths inch heat shrink tubing from radio Shack to shrink over the springs and prevent scratching.

To hold my brushes, I am considering Velcro on the top of the brush and a piece of Velcro on the bottom of my medicine chest. I like the rubber stamp model yet I lack the sink top real estate.

Went to Radio Shack to buy the heat shrink tubing. They only sell combination size packages. The package has about 8 inches of the needed size for a price of 6.95. To do the entire piece you need close to 3 feet of shrink tubing. Bought 4 feet of tubing from Digi-Key online for 10.44.

I like it. I'd need a smaller one for my "collection". Or more brushes. Yup, more brushes.

For the time being I have hung my razors from the 3 spots without brushes. This maneuver has resulted in freeing up even more counterspace.

This could be a revolution right here. You need to have the lawyer in this post to put in a patent for this idea and start marketing this brilliant idea of yours.Biggrin

Final pictures. Heat shrink in place razors in place. Stand is above my shaving cabinet.This placement allows for more counter space and helps in maintaining equitable rotation.

This guy is asking too much. I paid less than 100 and mine was in better shape. Keep your eyes open on e-bay and etsy

I've found two in local antique stores for good prices. Strange I can find these but next to no straights.
