This is right up there with the invention of the wheel and sliced bread! Robbed 8 tops off some water bottles that are 3/4 inch tall and less than a inch wide ANNNNNDDD the bottom has tiny holes in which should be great for if they get full of water!

GOOD JOB THAT MAN![:T][:T][:T]

My slight variation. Mounted to the side means that you can ship out paste without the pole blocking the cup. Also the pole can be twisted to move the pot out of your line of sight.

One other thing to note is, Put some small holes in one or two of your pots and then you don't have to worry about water in them all the time as it just drains away itself...

I've been using this idea for a long time now after seeing the original post. I've shown this idea to youngsters who I'v taught and they give it a great thumbs up too. A fantastic idea, and thanks for sharing it with us.

I love the paste pot variation, and feel another 'top' raid of the bathroom and kitchen cupboards coming on.......

I just made a couple of these, having only used my new pole once.

They are so easy to make and work so well.

I literally cannot believe how good they are & how stable they are.

No wonder firms have been trying to use the concept.

Made one of these the other day out of an old Right Guard deodorant top. Worked perfectly, normally can't cup in to save my life, but this worked brilliantly.

Bringin' this back! :D

Just been trying to 'kit-out' me father for his power-whip. He wants to get back into fishing and margin fishing is what he likes. We was watching a video on youtube last night and he shouts "hey son! i should get one of those for friday!" to which i replied "or we could make one!?".

These t-pots are truly brilliant! ^^

What a fantastic idea this is! I bookmarked this article a few months ago and forgot about it, until this weekend that is!

I now have three pots made up ready to go, saved me a few quid, thanks very much!

I made a few up last weekend, in various sizes. Used them this week and they are brilliant.[:T]
Thanks very much for sharing the idea, so simple yet so efficient. Not to mention money saving and recycling all in one go.
As a very new novice its easy to get swept up with all the latest "Must Have's"[:(]

I was wondering how to use paste with the original design as I could only use a small piece so it would get past the pole. Your modification is top notch Neil! Just about to make a few up.
