« Part 18: Sanding Small Parts Part 19 of Hints and Tips series Part 20: Card of Tacks for Spraying Smaller Items »

While making some bottle openers, I needed a way to get into a small area and sand, so I cut a piece of thick dowel, cut a neck into it to help me get past an installed and glued-on washer, glued on a piece of sandpaper with contact cement, trimmed it and sanded away. It was a simple fix to an odd problem, but I’m not positive everyone would have considered such a low tech approach.
