Save Sharp Saw Blades
To protect saw blades and keep my shop safe, I use a lid from an ice cream bucket to store my circular saw blades. With the lip side up, place a blade inside the lid. Then, cut the lip off
another lid and place that lid on top of the blade. By alternating blades with edgeless lids, several blades can be stored in one lid.
Prevent Rodent Access
Rodents can wreak havoc on a grain vacuum that is in storage. To keep mice out, I covered the auger opening with a discarded gauge wheel from a cultivator. To serve as a guide for securing the cover, I used a peg from an old telephone cross arm. A tarp strap secures the wheel in place. The peg doubles as a handle to take the wheel off.
