Quick Tips Vol. 19

By: Erich Lage
Here are a few tips that make life easier in the shop.

Dust Cover.

03 17 01 Dan Martin of Galena, OH was tired of cleaning his magnifying light every time he wanted to use it. To solve this problem, he started using a gallon-size resealable bag as a dust protector. The bag protects the light from dust and can be easily removed.

Guide Bushing Installation.

03 17 02 In order to ease installation and ensure his guide bushing is tight, Vince Milewski, of San Jose, CA, reaches for a bicycle pin spanner. 03 17 02b The spanner is inserted into two 5⁄32" holes drilled in the bushing and provides leverage to tighten it down.

Marking on Dark Woods.

03 17 03 Allen Bell of Marietta, OH uses a correction fluid pen to make layout marks on dark wood. The correction fluid offers a high contrast against dark woods and makes marks easier to see. The correction fluid scrapes and sands off easily.
