Funny little things...

I've always been entertained by funny little solutions that people come up with to solve simple problems. Napkins under cafe table legs, and other little shims and plugs made of everyday items. "That coat button just fit there, and now it sits perfectly." And so on.

The bolt head for adjusting my router table sits in a recess that is perpetually filling with dust. There's really nothing for it, the bolt head needs to be recessed, and router tables generate dust. But when the router's running, and I have a dust mask on, it's hard to blow the dust out, to make room for the wrench so I can make an adjustment. And so I jam the wrench in anyway, pack down the dust, and clean it out later.

Today I found the perfect dust plug.
