Is there a proper way to hold a sharp chefs knife so that it is less dangerous to use?

To get a firm grip on your knife blade, you should have your thumb firmly placed on one side and your index finger on the other side of your knife. With the remaining 3 fingers loosely curled around the handle. It might feel a bit of an unnatural grip to start with but you will soon get used to it and it's a safe way to hold your knife.

Fridgedaire Upright Freezer Door won't stay shut. Normally when closed, you hear the seal take place, now it pops open

Check the seal in the corners on the side of the door your hinges are on, ya may need to tack it down with crazy glue, but usually it'll curl in the corners preventing door from closing or pop open after you walk away

Remove links from metal watch band

This was on a Seiko Dive watch SKX007. This has the metal links joined with pins, which, you will find, are split/spring down their length.

I used a neoprene mouse mat as a work surface, which was ideal as it allows the pin to move out, whilst supporting the links and stopping any slippage. I also rigged a table lamp close by.

There is an arrow which shows in which direction the pin needs to be pushed to remove it. Look carefully and you see that one end of the pin is slotted a little, the other is plain. Push the plain end in the direction of the arrow firmly... it's a leap of faith.

As a tool, I used a cocktail stick to start with. It required firm pressure and then it suddenly gives. I was able to draw the pin out by hand, but used pin nose pliars in one instance, as some pins offer more resistance than others. In most cases the cocktail stick worked (I got through a few). I then graduated to a thumb tack which was more reliable, but metal to metal, so a bit more worrying.

Sliding the pin back was simple, though take care to get the smaller links the right way up when it is re-threaded. I pushed it home the last few millimeters with the flat side of the pliers, giving a final push with the cocktail stick. Good luck. Simplysimon.
