I had an inexpensive combination square that had developed rust under the clear coat. In this video, I remove the coating and buff out the rust. In the end, I once again have a usable square. Cheap or Lazy? Cheap (again).
A while back, the handle broke on one of my framing hammers. Although it would be easier to just get another one, I decided to repair it by making a new handle. The wood is white oak, from the firewood pile. The specific piece was a casualty of last year’s ice storm. It seems like everything is disposable these days. I like the idea of fixing things instead of constantly acquiring new stuff and putting the old stuff in the landfill. Cheap or Lazy? Cheap.
