    if you put all your clothespin a plastic bag for storage, you can seal the bag up with a binder clip.

    Zip ties. (I'm convinced we could've saved the Titanic with zip ties and duct tape.)

    change glues or switch to ice tea.... safety tip of the day, tip o' the hat to member #356789 Mr. Inhalant sniffer, who posted this on July 8th 1959, one week after super glue was invented.

    good ol #356789, wonder what happened to him? he don't post much anymore.

    Beat me to it with the pencil. Along with paper you have the tools to start planning all other tools.

    I knew someone would make a joke like this. When I was starting to learn fiddle, I and everyone around me wished they had a mute like this.

    I feel it. I play violin and my kid fiddles. There’s a learning curve.

    When I was a small lad, we made rubber band guns using the clothespin as the firing mechanism.

    Thank you indeed. A couple weeks ago.... Not certain they developed quite enough pressure for a first-timer like me, but they're all I had!

    I love using a soil spreader. Makes the finished job looks like it was done by a machine
