Liner Dryer
« on: April 01, 2008, 08:23:26 PM »
I purchased a liner dryer from an ad that I saw in an ACA magazine last year.  I love it and I would like to purchase another but I don't have the invoice or any old ACA magazines. 

If anyone has any ACA magazines from last year, I would greatly appreciate it if someone would find the ad and provide me with a website address or a phone number.  Thank you in advance.   :)

Mlitchee, was it in the IN-MOTION mag, if so i should have it will  take a look and see if i can find it for you, this way may be faster contact the ACA and ask them they should be able to put on to the manufacture. Also contact your CPO, they may be able to tell how and where to go,

Have made a couple of them my self and this is what i used:

2 ea= 1" dowel 18" long
2 ea= cut round of 3/4 pine in a 4 inch circle

drill a 1 inch hole in center of the pine and glue the dowel and the paint with a good oil base paint, i painted mine white.
Almost forgot to tell you to round off the top of one end of the dowel.
you-all have a great day.

Hi PLJ.  Thanks for the info on how to make one.

The ad was in InMotion magazine.  ...It is a metal stand.  I love it and I would like to have another one.

Thanks!

Please.... If anyone has any old ACA InMotion magazines from 2007, I would greatly appreciate if you would take the time to leaf through the magazine to try and find the ad that I am looking for.

The ad is for a metal liner dryer stand and I think that it may have been manufactured in New Jersey (or somewhere out east).  I am looking for a web address and/or a phone number so that I may contact the company.

I sent an email to the ACA and I have not heard back from them.  (I am hoping that they haven't had time to reply to my request yet and that I will hear from them.) 

I would really like to purchase another one rather than make one.

Thanks!!!!    :)

I made a very sturdy, practically indestructible liner dryer from PVC parts. Inexpensive and very easy to use and clean.

I tried seal-in liners and found that I twisted too much at the tops of the sockets and ended up with huge red welts around the tops of my stumps where the liners ended. Being bilateral, I like the additional stability and security of silesian belts, in addition to the suction, so was unable to roll the liners over the tops of the sockets. But while I tested them, I needed some way to dry them as well. A very simple solution was to sit them in round plastic cereal sized bowls and let them sit upright overnight. Worked like a charm.

But if I had kept wearing them, being an old retailer, I was going to go to a store fixturing shop and buy a couple of hat stands, (metal base, adjustable steel rod and curved top, round wooden top), although they would have likely cost more than the dryers mentioned here although I expect that the fixture shop would have given them to me no charge. You might find them at second hand fixture stores cheap.

I usually get a stand with  my liners.  its very good and dose not require any effort or take up space.
