shop tip

In many shops, finding the right tape at the right time can be a problem. Once located, it's often covered with sawdust, wood shavings, and other debris.To keep various types and sizes of tape in one handy location, use scrapwood and a piece of dowel or broomstick to make a tape dispenser. An old hacksaw blade reinforced with a wooden strip makes an excellent cutting edge.
