Staple Set

PNEUMATIC STAPLERS don't always set 1/4" crown staples flush. Driving them the rest of the way with a hammer causes the staples to kink, so I designed this easy-to-make tool, which I call a "staple set."

To make the set, cut a 5" section of dowel at least 1" in diameter and drill a 1/4" hole down the center. You'll have to drill the dowel from both ends to reach all the way through. Insert a 6-1/2" length of 1/4" steel rod Into the hole. Place the staple set over the staple and tap the steel rod.This sets the staple without bending it.

Glue Caddy

BEING AN IMPATIENT SORT, waiting for glue to reach the bottle's spout became a pet peeve of mine.To put an end to this, I made a stand with a hole in the top matching the diameter of the bottle's lid. It allows the bottle to stand upside down so the glue is always ready to use. For stability, I made the base slightly larger than the top.

Disposable Drill Press Table

INSTEAD OF MAKING DISPOSABLE INSERTS for my drill press table, I found that it's faster and cheaper to make disposable fence/table assemblies. I can use the entire surface of my disposable tables, so I get more life from them.

First, make a 3/4" x 16" x 20" base for your drill press table and bolt it in place. Epoxy a 3" 1/4-20 bolt through one corner of the base.Then cut a fence 3/4" x 2" x 18". Drill 1/4" holes 2" apart along the 3/4" surface of the fence's
