Get a Grip on Clamps.
Ramiro Salinas of Albuquerque, NM, wraps the handles of his clamps with rug traction tape purchased from a home center. The thick tape stays put, lasts a long time, and provides plenty of grip to make it much easier to tighten or release the clamps.
Storage Bin Labels.
Bryan Nelson of Altoona, IA, keeps his hardware in order using plastic bins. By sliding plastic laminate in the slot on the front, he can clearly label the contents with a marking pen. If the contents change, all it takes to erase the label is a little denatured alcohol.
Old Saw Helper.
David Bragg of Ormond Beach, FL, uses his flush-cutting saw a lot in his shop. Several of the teeth were bent from dropping the saw. Instead of buying a new saw, he tapped the teeth flush with a hammer. He then placed a layer of tape on the underside of the saw. This lifted the blade just enough to prevent scratching the surface without adding much work to sanding the plugs flush.
