    Clean shop or not.

    My shop is 1/2 a two car Garage.... My shop is is neat enough to be useful. It does need a good sweeping but I know where all my tools are. I need to organize my stock. I am trying to convince my wife to let me take over the rest of the garage

  14. I have been asked to make a blow pipe with a hook near the end to be able to adjust logs in a campfire. He gave me some 1/2" square tubing to make it. any suggestion for how to make the mouthpiece for this?
