Got a Pro-Tip/Life Hack you wanna share?

Heres mine I just learned. Wanna make a new hole for your leather belt? Grab a scratch awl and poke thru the inside of the belt where you need a notch.

Dremels/hacksaws/boltcutters were a big aha moment for me. Always thought you needed more special tools to cut metal but nope. Cutting stripped nuts off with a dremel is a lifesaver


Here's a cool electric one for pulling wire through conduit/pipe: You tape a small plastic bag to a long piece of string and put the bag into the end of the conduit so that it blocks airflow in the conduit/lets the vacuum get suction on it. Then you take a shop-vac and put the vacuum hose into the other end of the conduit and suck the bag/string through, leaving plenty of string on the original end of course. Then you just tie/tape all your wires to that string, soap it up so it slides easier and pull the wires back through the conduit with the other end of the string.

Hopefully that makes sense. Was installing some electric stuff last week and thought that was the coolest trick. Otherwise I have no idea how you'd pull 4 bulky wires through a long underground pipe with bends in it. One step closer to getting a proper shower installed. Its been fun learning how to do basic electrical/plumbing; I always perceived them to be complicated things but its really not, at least at basic household level

A vacuum to suck the wiring thru the conduit pipping?

Genius! :takingnotes:

A few that come to mind:

- Save worn out toothbrushes for cleaning stuff - e.g. dirty boots
- If a pen won't write, trying putting the tip under a hot tap for a second or two.
- Don't say anything to police/cops. Not being anti-cop, but there is very little advantage and whole lot of disadvantage.

A 9V battery and some steel wool can be used to start a campfire.

If your refrigerator is not cooling very well clean the coils underneath. It is easy with a long brush and a vacuum and your fridge will work like new.

Easy way to cut perfect circles of any size with a router. Thought that was pretty cool. I'm thinking about building some speakers

When pulling nails out of drywall use a wide spatula or similar item to spread the pressure from the hammer and prevent a hole in the drywall. Also works well for prying off trim without damaging the wall




If you break the head off a nail that you are trying to pull out use a pair of vice grips to clamp on and then use the rounded part of the grips like a lever to pull the nail out



Going to try to keep adding tips like this if you guys think they are helpfil
