Like many people, I simply hate junk mail......

.....but, my hatred has been tempered more recently.

There are at least two things that come free in junk mail that are helpful around my shop.

First is the plastic "membership card".

Often, I will receive a piece of mail with a "temporary membership card" or a "non-negotiable credit card", etc.

As has been discussed, you SHOULD always mix two-part epoxies on non-porous surfaces in order to keep the material from being absorbed, and percentages correct.

I cut off a "mixing/spreading paddle" from one end of the card, then mix everything up on the remainder of the card.

When done, I toss it all..........

There is a small stack of these cards in the box with my epoxies.

My collection includes cards of varying thicknesses and stiffnesses, so they also make good spreaders.


Secondly is the "refrigerator magnet".....This could come in the form of a business-card-sized magnet on up to some fairly substantial-sized calendars.

You can often pick these up at various businesses and professional offices.

I find these handy to protect surrounding areas when working.

Want to drill something that is freshly painted, but worried that a long piece of the spiral swarf will scratch the surrounding surface?

Punch a hole in one of these magnets, and drill through the hole while the rest of the immediate are is protected.

Unlike the credit cards, these magnets are re-usable.

If you have enough of these, you could also use them as templates.


B.P.
