Within Reach

When I built my my workshop table I put a magnet tool holder on each side, but haven’t really used them. Finally making use of them with a 6′ tape measure and a pencil with a magnet glued in. I also used a nail for hanging a speed square there. Both sides of the table have the same setup.

I’m always trying to make things more efficient.

Microwave Efficiency Tips

Ever think about how to save time when using your microwave? I do.

Instead of pressing 1-3-0 for a minute and a half, press 9-0 for 90 seconds. This saves a button press for anything between 60 and 100 seconds. Need 1:15? Press 7-5 instead of 1-1-5.

My microwave has a button labeled “Minute Plus,” which I always use when I need one minute instead of programming 1-0-0 or 6-0. If I need 2 minutes I hit that button twice. This button also saves from having to hit the Start button.

Do you have any tricks?
