Thumbs up My DIY Drop checker........

This only took about an hour to do and 24 hrs to cure.

Anyway I am pretty happy with it.



Enjoy.

Very nice but if you make the background of white acrylic is will be easier to read.

Nice glue work. I'm not that neat.

Thanks guys!
Yeah I was thinking of making it with a white regent dam but decided to make it 1 1/2
inches sq.
The amount of solution and regent makes it very easy to read IMO.

As for the blue work thanks I learned a couple tricks from an old school plastics guy.
