I have been carrying a very compact Swiss Army knife in my pocket for over a dozen years. This one has a small set of scissors, which is great for cutting the small tie wraps binding cords on various items, especially from thrift stores. I can reach for larger scissors but most of the time they are not handy. The flat blade driver is useful for popping things open, as it has hardly any use as a slot driver.Victorinox Swiss Army Knife --
Corkscrew is handy for Untying Knots !
Nice tip! I'm gonna remember this.Went to an ER recently and they inserted and IV in my arm. When the lady removed it blood got on me trousers. She peroxide would work. They were work pants so I wasn't too concerned but thought what the heck.
Poured a cap full on the spot and it fizzed like crazy. Rinsed it off thinking there'd be a bleached spot. There was not. And the stain was a lot lighter. So two more applications like that and the stain was completely gone with no bleached spot at all on a parchment colored pair of trousers.
I have an older thick alluminum pan that the non stick coating came off of long long ago. It's a great pan to cook with though. Food gets stuck to it and a plastic scouring pad won't begin to get it clean. I'd actually wet sand it at times.
Well, one day I was doing a rice dish where I brown meat in butter then toss in some pre-cooked rice. Or broccolli. The butter at the end carmelizes and sticks to the food. Yummy! But it also adds a layer of crud to my pan.
One day I added a few teaspoons of water to moisten the rice. After stirring I noticed the crud was mixing with the food and after serving it all the pan was clean. Wuh?!?
So now when the food is prepared and served (meaning pan has cooled) I add about 5 tablespoons of water to the empty pan, heat that up and whatever crud is stuck comes right off with a spatula. No more scouring to get the pan clean.
Recent evidence against excess aluminum intake would also seem to require a new pan.Given all that 👆even MacGyver would purchase himself a new pan. 😄
Flat few days ago on F350 diesel w 8 lugs. Had a spare, stock jack/wrench but could not loosen last two. Adjusted jack to lug height, put wrench on jack and nut and jumped on with both feet. Worked great. Pics not taken but can repeat for pic if needed. Torqued when home.
Set up a trail cam with a cell phone video feed. Then you can have timely alert with video evidence to identify the perp and turnover to police for arrest and prosecution. Assuming of course you live where LE will care to do anything about it. CA has basically legalized theft.+
Someone has been trying to get into my garage through my keypad.
This morning, must been the forth or fifth time they left the cover up on it.
..I don't ever leave the cover up, ever (wind didn't do it either, nope)
Probably using a UV light to see what numbers have been pushed,,
so today I took bit used motor oil & smeared it on all the numbers, just a little bit.
That'll give an interesting UV shine back___
then I changed the code
You can also save a couple bucks by making your own lugs from the correct I/D copper pipe/tube. After cutting the pipe to size, ream out the end that closes up from using a cutter, then find a tight fitting pin or drill bit to insert in half way, clamp the other side in a vise and pinch it closed. Then use a hammer and finish flattening it out. The drill bit/pin will help keep it from pinching closed too much and give you a nice transition. After drilling a hole and rounding off the corners with a file, you have a high quality super cheap lug.+
If you make your own cables for things, there is a way to not have to buy a big crimper or the hammer type.
Purchased just the die set and put them in my bench vice to crank down on & get a vault solid crimp.
Got some 4awg pure copper lugs (came w/ shrink tubing) and carefully put them loosely into the vice w/ the dies..
Once everything was sorted & holding in place, insert your welding cable or whatever your using and crank down on it all the way.
Also soldered into the neck for the best possible anchoring/connection,, maybe a bit of overkill, but its' really good. Then shrink tube.
Made a couple cables about an hour ago,, worked perfect.
I find making cables very satisfying
** dies used were labeled (25) for 4awg cable & lug
