    TEMPORARY CLAMP
    Hi Guys,
    Another little tip.
    I use a spring toggle (from an old coat) and a piece of round elastic as a temporary clamp.
    Just push the button and pull the elastic and it holds things together (depending on the situation)
    Then to remove push the button and the elastic just pings lose.
    The photo with the yogurt pots is just for demonstration.

    Martin.

    Just take the ironing board and tell the wife that you have to repair it as it fell over and broke.

    I use mine the same way.
    Also for photographing stuff I want to post, without all the bench clutter in the immediate background ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Also for sorting boxes of new 'Stuff' that has just arrived ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS: "I worked it out, if the wife notices that the ironing board is missing just blame the dog!"
    I don't think I want to meet your dog!!!

    Hi Guys,
    I don't know if you class this as a Hint or a Tip?
    But due to the lack of bench space in my little workshop I got fed up having to keep moving my boats just to use the bench.
    So I purchased an old ironing board from the boot sale for ยฃ1.00 and stripped the covers of .
    I now have a bench to keep my boat on and also you can adjust the height to suit when working on it, And it folds away when not in use. leaving me with my original bench to do other things on.

    Martin.
