    Unusual Uses for Magnets

    I have magnetic strips, cut into various lengths glued to areas on and around my sewing machine. When I remove pins it's so easy to lay them on a strip. Hope this helps.

    now that's absolute genuis! How large are they?

    ?? Glad it was you doing the English lesson today...I get so bummed out reading just about anything these days.?

    why? What does that accomplish?

  • Outdoor Privacy Bench With Concrete Seat

    Love the "socks"! I think Confederate Jasmine would be a great selection for planting in ground behind the bench. Later,when it's growing seemingly out of control, add arms - extensions with more lattice for growing space.Love it overall.

    Glue Gloves

    The thing I find most helpful when trying to convey an idea to paper is to make a list of things you want to convey, then proof read it a couple of times and imagine yourself as someone following the instructions. You'll likely find where you should clarify. I'm still not sure, but I'm guessing you mean one can use any one of the materials to cover the hands, but not all at once...???By non-drying soap I'm thinking Dove or any good face soap...maybe even a liquid dish soap. Thanks for the reply. Love this site and learning new things.

    Glue Gloves

    I too found it a bit confusing. You began with a list of supplies which I thought you meant that all would be used in the application. As I read on you seemed to be demonstrating that each of the items COULD be used individually to protect your hands...so which one is correct? I certainly can't imagine coating ones hands with Super Glue! Or even nail polish. Another thing you might want to try is a non-drying hand soap...do this by using a lot of soap and a small amount of water...let them dry and then proceed with the project.

    Third Hand (Helping Hand)

    good idea..you must be about 12 years old huh? Some remedial English and spelling would help you greatly in life , now and later on. Keep the thinking cap on!And a couple of pictures showing it in use would help.

  • Hanging hydroponic waterfall filter garden

    Really clever. I like the idea of recycling the pot holders, using fish waste to feed the plants, etc. And I like the rustic look of it overall.Thanks for sharing.

    Replacing Kobo Touch battery

    any thoughts on repairing the volume on a Kindle HDX7? Mine is about 3-4years old...it's my refurbished second one to own, and although I do have a sound booster installed, I've never had it above the 40 rating they warned me about.Thanks for any thoughts on this.
