The Family Handyman

Reader Robert Harris sent us a sharp tip for dull blades. Using 3M spray adhesive, apply sandpapermedium to finer gritson all four sides of a 12-in. piece of 2×2 hardwood. First cut or sand a 4-in. long handle on one end so you can move through the grits by spinning the handle. Youll grab the club whenever dull utility knives and chisels need resharpening, and its also handy as a file sander for wood or metalworking. When the sandpaper is used up, just peel it off, respray and apply fresh sandpaper.
