TIP OF THE DAY

Non-working electric blankets make good moving blankets
A small inside light wired to a normally closed switch can alert you when you leave the garage open
Acquire DW's nail polish bottle to put spray graphite lube in. Less mess with the brush
Refrigerator shelves and brackets work outside the refrigerator for shop shelves
Wood band saws can be converted to metal cutting with a change of pulleys and blades
Make a 9 volt garage door opener work on your 12 volt car battery with a cheap voltage regulator
and hide a push button switch under the dash. No more dead 9 volt batteries
Stainless steel scrubbers in a small metal container work good for cleaning a soldering iron tip
Attach a drill chuck key to a heavy duty retractable key retainer or a ladies flat coil spring belt
Double side tape a flat magnet to the back of a TV remote to attach it to a metal filing cabinet or tool box in your shop
Grocery store shelves are adjustable and stronger than store bought shelves
I hang a old sheet from my bench top to the floor to keep the troll from stealing small objects when dropped
Install a motion detection light inside the garage if you go in/out briefly
Use the oil beside your nose for cleaning up smudges on photos and other things that need a quick lube
Repair gaskets by "pinching" a small amount of gasket sealer on the gasket and let dry overnight
Section off a pet food bin so it doesn't take as much to fill and also keep the pet food fresher
Garage doors radiate a lot of heat. Insulate them with some styrofoam or foam backed foil
Use an 18" wide closet door and some screw on legs to make a long TV component table
If you have AC or a swamp cooler on your garage, put a timer on it so it doesn't run all day
You can adapt a digital caliper to be a DRO(Digital Read Out) for a drill press for exact depth holes
Use an old pillow case for a sewing machine cover
Pledge works great for taking out fine scratched in old eye or safety glasses
If you have multiple chargers, put them on an AC power strip and turn them all off at once
Unplug the power supply after your laptop is fully charged
Instead of reading the small print, mark the top of pill bottles with the drug, V = Vicoden, etc
Tic-Tac bottles make good pocket pill holders
If you have a garden, use a CD on a string to scare birds away
If you need a 12V power supply, use one from a PC. Enough for test purposes
Put bananas in the fridge. They will turn dark sooner, but the meat will remain firm longer
Those 12X10" plastic pans the hospital sends home with you are good for storing things in a motor home
Use a long piece of carpet remnant to keep your dump hose from getting holes when you drag it across the dirt or cement to the dump hole
One of those cheap AC detectors that light up and buzz are great for finding hot AC wires or circuits
A baby door makes a great pet door to keep your pet from roaming in your motor home
Mini doggie tennis balls work good to keep the wipers off the windshield and prevent flattening out
Install a weather-proof AC outlet in you generator compartment
I haven't found anything that affects a used saline solution bottle; use one for dish detergent, hand cream, alcohol, solvent, oil, etc
Sugar dispensers can be use for sprinkling sugar on cereal, etc and won't get on your counter top like a spoon can
Put small pet treats in a small bottle with a half moon cut-out in the plastic lid. I use Cheerios for treats
A short strip of double sided Velcro makes a good cord shortener
WD-40 is a lot cheaper by the gallon and can be use in a plastic trigger spray bottle
Canned air works for more things that cleaning dust out of keyboards
Make your own brackets from angle iron or aluminum from HD or Lowe's
Pocket protectors are great for storing Q-tips, tooth pics and other small objects in the galley or bathroom
Use muffin pans to keep track of small parts or screws
Put a PC fan in a utility trailer vent to help exhaust the hot air
Use side the panels and top from a computer or other desk to make small tables or cabinets
Use coffee creamer for a milk substitute or cocoa thickener
Ammo boxes make good water-tight tool or storage boxes
Tackle boxes also make good tool boxes with separate compartments
Used carpet tiles from an office are great for bathrooms or small areas like entrance steps
Cut to fit and Velcro foil backed sun screens to windows and overhead vents to keep the heat & cold out/in
Use dry erase pens to write reminders on mirrors, like the last time you took a pill or something that needs to be fixed
Use a "P" clip or a wire retainer to hold your dry erase pen nearby
Take a cordless phone out to your motor home when working on it
Alcohol works great as a glass cleaner. I buy de-natureed alcohol by the gallon from HD or Lowe's
A spice rack works great as a pill rack

How long has the troll lived under the bench? Maybe you could install a mini fridge for it.

Doesn't need it. Troll eats tools and small screws.

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed, they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.
