Quick Tips Vol.23

By: Erich Lage
Here are a few quick and easy woodworking tips that make your woodshop time more pleasant.

Laminate Spacer.

W237 006f02 Bill Ding of Birmingham, AL, uses laminate chip samples to prevent vise racking. The samples, available for free from home improvement stores, are held together with a bolt and nut. Bill can then swing them out to the same thickness as his workpiece.

Check Misfires.

W237 006f03 Rob Mahan of Chelsea, MI, uses a simple trick for checking brad holes after his nailer misfires or runs out of brads. By holding a small magnet over the holes, Rob can confirm where nails have been driven and those locations where the nailer has misfired.
