The Family Handyman
Reader Robert Harris sent us a sharp tip for dull blades. Using 3M spray adhesive, apply sandpaper—medium to finer grits—on all four sides of a 12-in. piece of 2×2 hardwood. First cut or sand a 4-in. long handle on one end so you can move through the grits by spinning the handle. You’ll grab the club whenever dull utility knives and chisels need resharpening, and it’s also handy as a file sander for wood or metalworking. When the sandpaper is used up, just peel it off, respray and apply fresh sandpaper.
