Well, you've made your fancy printed 25 mm Catan number tokens, now you'll need a good and safe way to store 'em, amirite? Well, maybe not you, but definitely me. Possibly you. Heck, I shouldn't presume as you wouldn't be looking at this if you weren't a little intrigued.
These are tubes designed to store my Catan Number Tokens - 4 Player Set and Catan Number Tokens - 6 Player Set, and are a remix of CNC Artist's lovely Utility Survival Tube Threaded on Outside. He didn't have sizes that precisely matched what I needed, so I smashed some into shape.
There are three sets of tubes:
- 4 Player Set (One Piece) - 26 mm ID x 76 mm ID tube
- 6 Player Set (One Piece) - 26 mm ID x 116 mm ID tube
- 6 Player Set (Two Piece) - 26 mm ID x 99 mm ID tube & 26 mm ID x 17 mm ID extension
Due to having a MonoPrice Mini Select with a limited Z-axis height, I made a second version of the 6 Player Set tube in two pieces (a dab of glue makes it a quasi-permanent single piece). If you have a printer that can produce something larger than, say, the average pack of gum, you would do well to print the one piece 6 Player Set tube.
There are also three caps to choose from (mix and match!):
- Plain Cap (so brutalist!)
- Sheep Hexagon Cap (feel the lanolin!)
- Wheat Hexagon Cap (not gluten free!)
Enjoy your new stylish token armored protective containment units.
Er, print them and put your number tokens inside them. Don't eat them. They don't taste nice and will simply wreck your bridgework. Well, don't eat them unless you print them out of cheese. Don't let me tell you how to live your life.
PS: If you do print them out of cheese, please add my name to your fancy new patent paperwork.
