    : use a ball of aluminum foil as a scrub pad to remove rust blooms from chrome. dip it in hot soapy water and rub the rust away. it doesnt scratch the chrome and its great for wheels.

    Want to make a STRAIGHT cut in a length of tubing or pipe with a handsaw? (& you don't have a miter box)

    Put a hose clamp on it to use as a guide.

    for broken bolt extraction in a real bind:
    drill #30 hole in stud
    pound in a torx bit and turn it out.
    the torx bits are hard like screw extractors and have a slight taper so they bite in mega hard.
