    :confused: Legal Mumbo Jumbo -- I'm in the Aesthetics Field. I just thought it would look cool wrapped or painted over, and better than a soup can with a slit in it.

    At the outlet mall yesterday, one of the shops was selling souvenir Las Vegas tin banks for $1.99 that would be perfect for a blade bank. Coin slot on top, bottom hole not large enough for blades to come out. Looks like it would hold at least a few years of blades (unless you are a 1 blade use kind of person).

    And the tin is sealed so the garbage man does not get cut and it is totally recycleable.

    Great idea, I'll have to try this out. First though, I'll have to take back a tin or two from my girlfriend. Every time we empty one she takes it and squirrels it away with the 200 other ones she must have by now. "Because I might need it" or "its pretty" are the two most common excuses.

    Hehe. The kids always give that option to trick instead of treat, so why not? :D

    I'm going to make something similar when I get back from Holidays, but I think I will try and find a tin the same size as a small baked bean tin.

    Good work!

    My used blades go in the plastic bottle with my used needles.

    I bought a Band-Aid tin from the drug store, opened it in the store, took all the band-aids out and told the cashier to put them in their store's first-aid kit. Brought the tin home, super glued the lid shut and cut a slit in the lid. Wah la! A $1.29 investment that will take a while to fill up.

    Band-Aid tins are seriously hard to find these days as all of the companies that make band-aids now put them in cardboard boxes. You can usually still find the tins in older drug stores.

    Of course I do have the blade slot in the back of my medicine cabinet and the wall will hold a lifetime of blades too... :happy102

    I took a broth can and cut a slit in the top. I drained the can, rinsed, and painted with rustoleum. I have been using it for over 3 years and it still has room.

    I am thinking it is about time to upgrade. The slit in the top of the can is very uneven. I wonder what would happen if I dremeled a slit in the top of the can instead of punching a screwdriver through the top. :eek:
