I commute 80 miles round trip to work, so I bought a little nissan to save gas. Apparently, because it's a small car, the manufacturer decided that the driver should drink very small beverages. There is no cup of coffee that will fit in the cup holder. I got tired of watching my coffee cup roll around on the floor. I invested way more time in my cup holder than I'd like to admit, but my coffee now stays put in easy reach. 20180923_120400.jpg 20180923_120415.jpg 20180923_120516.jpg

I like the o-ring. Used to retain the new cup holder into the old, I assume? Truly a good, practical training exercise. I really enjoy the jobs where there aint much to lose, and alot to gain. Does the new receptacle have a taper? If so, an even better exercise:cool 2:

Thanks. It has 3 degrees of taper. That fits nicely on my yeti cup and the styrofoam cups as well. The oring locks it into position and holds it even on illinois roads.

I did run all of the edges over the deburring wheel. This started with me digging through my scrap pieces looking for something I could weld together that would hold my coffee cup. I kinda got carried away. Up next....ipod holder.

"There's nothing that can be built that can't be overbuilt"

Nice piece of work, that's about a $300 cup holder there.
