Tip & How-To about Crafts & Hobbies
There are advantages in using stainless for brackets and metal plating or even as shims. You can get a cheap source of Stainless metal by going to Garage sales and Estate sales and buying used Silverware.
In particular, knives are handy for shims and reinforcement of weak parts. You can drill needed holes and also cut the blade to the length you need.
The spoons can be used to stir or mix chemicals. The forks can be detined to a single probe and used to punch reset buttons or release Electric connector tabs.
Sometimes you can make a single purpose tool better than anything you can buy using this idea.
