What have you come up with that isn't a "store bought" tool originally intended for tying?
I think that it's amazing how innovative some of us are.

Longears, what is the url for the other post? I'd like to look over some of their ideas also.

"All it takes is one fool to be standing arround doing something, for a bunch of other fools to join in"......a quote from an old Newfoundlander I met fishing in the pooring rain

Now here's another gadget/gizmo for your pleasures.
Take a sponn tray like the ones that your wife has next to the stove. Mine is plastic cheapo that I got for less than $1.00 at Wally world. Drill a small hole in the center between the 2 spons indents.
Turn it over and glue 2 of them bussiness card sized refer magnets on the bottom of the spoon holders. take some plumbers putty and stick a wad of it over the screw hole. high enough to make contact with your bench when you turn it over. Now turn it over and attach it to your bench in a convieniant location near your vise. I use this gadget to hold beads and hooks so they dont end up all over the place and spill onto my hardwood floor.If you get a white plastic one it is alot easier on your eyes and easy to see what you've got in it .

An old toothbrush cleans out the fuzzy deer underfur pretty good too before tamping.
I also have a dog-tag chain draped across the inside of my hutch that I hang my epoxies on to finish drying after they have quit running. Put the fly nose down and hang the hook over the chain. The little balls keep the flies apart.
Hey Ronn, where do you get the brass sheets to make your wing burners?
