Quick Tips Vol. 5

By: Erich Lage
A couple of tips that help you out around the shop. The kind of tips that make project building a lot smoother.

Easy Pipe Clamp Padding

W224 008f04 Denis Manigart of Ampang Jaya, Malaysia, couldn’t justify the expense of buying clamp pads for all of his pipe clamps. Instead, he made some out of plywood. Each pad has a hole for the pipe to fit through and a groove to secure it to the clamp with a cable tie.

Moisture Control

W224 008f03 Dan Martin of Galena, Ohio, was having trouble with his dowels and biscuits absorbing moisture while stored in a container that wasn’t air-tight. To prevent this, he now stores them in resealable bags with several dessicant packs to absorb moisture.
