I like to tinker, That is what I like to do. Sometimes I drop a rhyme, Along with a tool or two. I use what I have on-hand, I keep projects super simple. I do not need more stuff, What I do have is ample. Drafts of projects are in my head, Before they are written in ink. One motto to live by is to Reduce, Reuse and Rethink.

    Window Screen Washer Lint Filter

    MrsP Thank you for reviewing and commenting. You have some keen questions.The sink strainer(drain cup) is inserted into the drain. Then the Leaf Guard sits in the cup. The Window Screen wraps around the outside of the cup and then the Window Screen, Leaf Guard and cup are inserted into the sink drain. Where by keeping the Window Screen from floating around. The Window Screen is then tied closed with the 1/4 inch Hose Clamp.1) Does anything secure the Leaf Guard and the window screen to the drain cup? (Ans) Just the pressure from the cup squeezing the Window Screen against the drain walls.2) What do you do with the bottom of the window screen under the drain cup? Does it need to be secured shut?

(Ans) Nothing is done with the bottom of the Window Screen. No, it does not need to be secured. The pressure of the drain cup holds it in place3) What keeps the lint filter from falling out of the drain when the sink fills with water? (Ans) The suction of the water going down the drain holds the lint filter from falling out of the drain. Even when the filter is full the pressure of the water and the weight of the lint, Window Screen, Leaf Guard and Hose Clamp holds the lint filter in placeI hope my answers help you complete your filter.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am glad to hear of your success with the use of super glue. I have been applying a lot of super glue to my chapped fingers as of lately.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I have a friend who plays guitar he would apply super glue to his fingers tips as needed. I am glad to hear of your success with the use of super glue.

    Floss Refill

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. That really depends on if you are willing to wind the small personal dispenser spool from a large professional refill spool. If you walk this route then you will need a manual or powered spool winder. The easiest route is buying another personal floss dispenser and switching the full spool into the smaller personal floss dispenser. You can buy a 200yrd professional refill spool on line. Where you would wind the small spool from the refill spool. There isn’t a market to sell a refill spool for a personal floss dispenser. I switched the floss spools from an over the counter personal floss dispensers. The dollar store sells a 55yrd personal floss dispenser where I open the case and switch it into the smaller floss dispenser. Ez

    Glue Gloves

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am sorry for any confusion you had with this instructable. You are correct that one should not cover their unprotected hands with Super Glue or nail polish.On the introduction page the Objective paragraph says “I will apply Nail Polish, Super Glue and Plasti Dip directly on to a thin layer of glue covering my skin.” Then on Step 1: Materials, I separated the Glue Gloves Material from the Demo Materials. I can see by skimming over the Objective paragraph there may be a disconnect between the Glue Glove Material and the Demo Materials.Do you have a suggestion on how to convey the idea of using the Glue Gloves to prevent the Demo Materials from bonding with someone’s hands?I will look into the non-drying hand soap.

    Thank you for your perspective. Yes, you are correct, you can use any one of the glues mentioned to prevent enamel paints, Super Glue or Plasti Dip from bonding with your hands.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I have used moisturizing creams to remove dirt from my hands. I have also tried creams before as well, but my hands were greasy.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. That sounds like a good idea, I will file that away for future use.

    Correction: I appreciate your views and I am honored that you made the time to critique this work.

    Thank you for replying with your suggestions. Although, I can see where you are coming from, this instructable was streamlined by design. Each illustration has 3 easy to follow steps. The 3 substances are the only thing different. I have seen instructables where the creator made 2 or 3 instructables where there were minor differences. I do not see any benefit with that model.Sometimes I use Bold font so the reader knows that what they are seeing is important. Other times I use Bold font to break the monotonous tone, to wake up the reader. It is hard to find that balance sometimes.I appreciate your views and I am honored that you made the time to critic this work. Thank you for your contributions to instructables.With respectEzman

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. You are correct it is quite effective. A second layer of skin is useful from time to time.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am sorry for any confusion, could you help me understand what seems scattered? Maybe I can help make it more clear.Ezman.

    Yes, you are correct. Just like another layer of skin. Along with the substance stuck on the outside there is also a mild exfoliating benefit which will the remove dead skin and dirt stuck on the inside. Thank you for reviewing and commenting.

    Thank you for your encouraging words and support. instruct on!

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. This application is versatile. Apply just 1 thin layer, more will require additional drying time. Most of the time I cover just my fingertips, up to the first knuckle, not my whole hand. It depends on what I am doing. Continued success in your endeavors.

    The large wooden bead sounds like a good idea. At first I was at a loss to what you were saying about the point protector. I am glad that you found a way to customize your Shawl Stick. Post a pic of your finished design.Thank you for commenting and keep designing.
