    Very Nice! How did you make the dividers? Are they 25 or 32 round mags? I know those fuse cans are pretty tall.

    Very nice. A set of instructions and materials list would also be nice!

    These are 25-rounders. The can measures 5-1/2" by 11". I thought it was a standard .50cal ammo can. I used a U-haul moving box for my cardboard. Two pieces together are about 3/8" thick. The height of the honeycomb is 5-1/2". The can holds 28 mags- 700 rounds. I suggest you use a carpenters square. Here are the directions.

    1. Cut (1) panel 5-1/2" by 11". Measure a 1-3/4" border all the way around and cut out the center window. This piece goes in the bottom of the can to try and get us a flat "floor".

    2. Cut (2) panels 5-1/2" by 5-1/2". These are the two end panels.

    3. Cut (2) panels 10-1/2" by 5-1/2". These fit inside the two end panels and complete the "liner".

    See pic below...

    4. Next cut (3) panels 10-1/2" long by 5-1/2" high. Draw a line 2-3/4" up from the bottom. This is how high you will cut the interlocking slots.

    5. Next, along the bottom, mark the following distances:

    1-1/2" , 3" , 4-1/2" , 6" , 7-1/2" , and 9" .

    6. Then make a mark 1/8" on either side of the "centerline mark. Repeat the process along the line drawn 2-3/4" from the bottom and then connect the two marks lying outside the centerline marks. This defines the slots which you cutout using a utility knive. The slots are 1/4" wide.

    7. Next cut (6) panels 5" wide by 5-1/2" high. Again mark the centerline 2-3/4" up fro the bottom.

    8. Next make centerline marks at hte following distance along the bottom:

    1-1/4" , 2-1/2" , and 3-3/4" .

    9. Again make marks 1/8" either side of the centerline marks and then repeat process along 2-3/4" centerline. Pencil in the slots and then cut out.

    Here's what one of the short panels looks like...

    10. Then all you do is interlock the panels and you're done!

    It will take you about 3 hours to finish. I've made a similar grid for my Thompson mags. They are too big to fit in an ammo can but I playing with some other alternative cases. Good luck!

    Kyle, I thought you had one of these. The fuse can I have is substantially taller than a standard 50 cal ammo can:

    And the nice thing about it is that it's tall enough for 25, 32 or 40 round UZI mags. Thanks for the great idea kyle.

    Just finished mine! I did a standard .50 cal ammo box for the 25 round mags. I'm going to do my N463 fuse can later for the 32 and 40 round mags.

    Excellent idea kyle! I like simple solutions.

    I happened across one at a gun show a while ago. I knew it would be handy for something so I bought it. I'm not sure if anyone stocks them.
