ELMER’S CORNER:

Here’s one from the July/August issue of The Family Handyman:  Magnetic stick trick.

In a hard to reach area, it can be frustrating to get a nut into place when you need to thread on a bolt from the other side. Here’s a slick trick. Glue a small rare-earth magnet to the end of a paint stick, attach the washer and nut to the magnet, and use the stick to hold them while you thread on the blot.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Muriel Kummer
