Handy Razor Blade Storage
It's convenient to keep extra utility and straight box cutter blades near your workbench, in the kitchen and in the garage. But the question is how to store them when they're not in use. A good solution is to glue a magnetic business card (a refrigerator magnet) to the inside of a cupboard door and to your workbench with the magnetic side out. The magnet is strong enough to hold the blades in place even if you slam the cupboard door.
Cake Pan Hardware Sorter
Make this time-saving device for sorting through your fastener jar from an old baking pan. Using a bimetal hole saw, drill a hole slightly smaller than the jar opening. Carefully file and then sand the sharp edges around the cut edge. Now you can pour the contents into the pan, find what you need and then rake the contents through the hole back into the jar!
No Sawdust in the House
Here's a good way to keep the sawdust off your clothes when you work in the shop. Pick up some cheap nylon athletic pants and a nylon rain jacket at a thrift store. Just slip them over your street clothes when you're kicking up dust in the shop—nothing sticks to them. Your regular clothes will last longer too!
