-I was tempted to entitle this post “home-made chain hoist,” but that seemed a bit TOO ornery. Even with the current title, a few of you are probably reading this merely out of curiosity. I mentioned a few days ago that I was going to degrease my saw chains before filing them, and then re-oil them afterward. I needed some way to dip them without getting my fingers in the stuff, and a coat hanger seemed just SO gauche, so I came up with this little tool. It’s simply a screw hook threaded into a file handle. I made two of them, one for outside and one for inside, since I may have winter and summer work stations. I have less than $2 each in them, so my fastidiousness didn’t cost me too much. I took a break from my usual “tight wire act” lifestyle today, so I didn’t really have anything to thrill you with, so I posted this just to let you know that I’m still among the living. I’m hoping to have a real bombshell tomorrow; maybe I can find some irregularities on Trump’s cable bill! You’ll just have to wait and see; please remember to continue breathing as you wait.
