A video from the Old Sneelock’s Workshop Archives. As you can see the video is from when the star of the show had a bit more color in his hair and a bit more hair. This video surfaced as a result of the computer crash. I was forced to go back through all kinds of files trying to recover what had gotten wiped out.
In a dusty file on the backup drive this video surfaced.
It’s not a great rack but it has been very serviceable in the year since the video was taken. By putting a wider base on the rack I was able to have them on the bench without tipping over and dropping tools everywhere

This little hand axe is very nice for rough work in the shop. The only problem I had with it was having it handy without being dangerous.

Having a secure spot to store this tool means it will be less likely to be damaged or damage me. It also puts it in easy reach so I can use it easily. It will be much more effective now.

A video tutorial showing how to make and use rivets by OldHave you ever been in a situation where you thought
you couldn't finish a project without the perfect tool, fastener, wood, spring,
or other widget that was in the plans you purchased on line? Step out of the
box into a world of your own making. Simple ideas are the basis of every
complex project, and they can be riveting.
It’s hard to buy presents for someone who wants junk. What junk should you get? Has he got one already. (Not really a problem.) Where can you find the right kind of junk?
Better to buy a new item and be sure it’s nothing he has already. Laser level. That’s the ticket.
