more dumb tricks...

Recommended Posts

I've got some chickens in the smoker, a new batch in the fermenter, plenty ammo loaded, and it's about to rain, so:

for a travel tying kit, take the big 3-ring binder that wasn't cool enough for the kids this year, and punch holes in various zip-lock bags to organize materials...can hold a BUNCH of stuff, and lets you tie anyplace if you use a pedestal vise. Some of those binders with pen-pockets, etc., can even take basic tool kit. Used to teach classes weekly in changing locations, and this was the answer. If you don't have a tying area, these on bookshelves are great.

On your tying bench, try a sheet of the shelf-lining stuff that's kind of "non-skid" and tacky... great way to keep fluffy stuff from migrating; makes Mama happier. The non-slip padding for under area rugs also works.
