Handy-Man Corner

I'm tired of bad Chiefs news.....


I thought it would be a good idea for a thread on the Handy-Man.

Do you have any Home remedies, gadgets you've made, advice on car repair, home maint, sollutions to kill weeds in your yard, bugs in your garden?

Use Coke to clean your batteries? That type of stuff.
Home made floor dry?

You did a much better job of explaining it than me. That's how we always coiled extension cords when I worked construction, though. It looks kind of goofy, but it definitely works. You can toss ten cords coiled like that in the back of a pickup, and they won't be tangled the next day.

I found the best way to conceal bloodstains is by punching a mouthy Bronco fan in the nose, and then when his broken nose is gushing like Bud Dwyer's last video, evenly distribute the blood throughout the garment. Wash lightly in cold water after it dries, and you're ready for the next Chiefs' home game.

Any Brilliant ideas on transporting Fishing rod/reels without busting them up?

I'm thinking of getting some 4-6" PVC tube with a cap glued on one end and a screw end on the other.

In the boat, get 2 velcro straps, screw them down along the edge, and they will wrap and hold them in the boat while moving/traveling.

That's the way to do it, Iowa.

If you have a snail problem leave a couple of spent beer cans with just a little bit of beer left in them laying around the ground. They'll be filled with dead/drunk snails in the morning. Makes things interesting for the guys at the recycling plant.

Discovered that one while camping a could years ago.

I usually just leave the tangled/mangled rods in the trunk and board the boat with a 12 pack of my favorite ale.

Out here in the east coast, it's common to see a rod 'carrier' on the front grill of a truck, it's a set of PVC tubes that are held by a bracket in front of the grill. Sometimes, it's in the back of the bed closest to the back window of the cab of the truck.

Place the rods in the PVC tubes and off you go...

The larger poles used for salt water/deep see fishing are carried in this fashion since they're 15ft or longer.

For the fly fishermen: best way to measure fish is to cut notches in your net net handle every 2-3 inches measuring from the tip of the net down. Fish head goes at the tip of the net frame and where his tail lands on the handle it your length.

Hard enough juggling a 8 foot rode in moving water without having to break out a measuring tape.

Fishing rods:

I've made the PVC holders. They work well. Most of my rods break down into 4-pieces and already have a case with them, but for my cheaper 2-piece rods I made the PVC tubes.

Last weekend, I had a brand new rod and a new baitcaster.........put the boat in the water......got a snag on the first cast, while pulling it, the rod broke. The second cast, with another rod/real...got a snag (using plastic worms that aren't supposed to snag easily).....pulling on the string(so as not to break another rod).....the string cut my finger like a deep paper cut.

Which brings me to my next tip.

A Product called DERMABOND is being used instead of stitches in alot of cases.....straight cuts, not on face etc.........................If you wash cuts on your fingers etc.......you can pinch them together and squirt Superglue on them, smear it over the top and it will dry and hold it closed.

It works the same, costs $200 less..........the dr stuff is heat activated or something, so the Glue takes longer to dry.....but it works. I've seen some pretty nasty cuts fixed that way.

The ones we caught didn't have shells. Either that or they took them off to get to the beer.
