BigWingUK says:

Teflon tape…… at 58s you say: "I wrap it on the same way the lid comes off"….but then you proceed to wrap the tape the OPPOSITE way to the way you just took the lid off"!

Brina D says:

Thank you. They are all great tips. I really wanted to comment on the hammer, but there are so many other great tips I can't pick just one. Lol

Hans de Groot says:

Thanks for the clever tips/hacks.it's always a pleasure and very informative to watch your videos.
In these summer months I do not watch all the new videos on the channels I'm subscribed to.
But yours I watch everytime.

Gene Duncan says:

All good tips. I really enjoy your channel and always seem to learn something useful. I have a tip to suggest that has served me well for many years. Occasionally, you will need a small drum sander and if it is portable – just that much better. I take a roll of emery cloth and tear off 2 or 3 feet. I also dig through some of my larger cotter pins to find a suitable candidate. I then insert the emery cloth between the legs of the cotter pin and insert the pin into my drill with the head of the pin away from your drill. If you oriented the emery cloth correctly, the drill will wrap the cloth around the cotter pin with the abrasive side on the outside. As the grit wears down, you only need to remove the last 2 or 3 inches and you can go again.

Chevrolet Diesel Nation says:

I was making a gift for someone who was leaving. And on the back I added some picture frame hangers with the tiny nails and I missed a couple times and it flattened the holder. I wish I thought about the magnets earlier

Thank you

Wiliam Bennett says:

I learned the trick of using a finish nail as a improvised drill bit years ago, but know the idea of a magnet on the hammer face, will definitely save mine and many other their poor fingers.
Would to say that an easy way to clean sawdust from a file is spray with WD40 and take a toothbrush to the milling face. Then to help prevent future build up is a PAM spray on the files.

Thomas Willis says:
