I wrote about Moonshine Metalworks in last week’s Weekend Watch. In one of Steve’s videos, you can see this clever use of a metal drawer. He keeps rolls of shop paper along the edge of a metal drawer. To dispense and cut a piece, he simply pulls the sheet over the edge and then uses the relatively sharp edge of the drawer to tear off the paper that he needs.
Also from the same video on Moonshine Metalworks comes this little bodge. To add some more forgiving jaw liners to his vise, Steve simply zip-tied a few chunks on wood to the metal jaws.
