    if you need to use a knuckle joint on your ratchet extension to get to a hard to reach place, just wrap the knuckle a couple times with masking tape. you can get it exactly where you need to and it will stick straight out instead of going limp (so to speak). and the tape doesn't cause too much resistance to the knuckle bending when it needs to.

    I also do this with a small peice of vacuum line I keep in my personal stock of various sizes. A small peice slid over the swivel works good sometimes too if there is enough room. I do the E-tape thing sometimes too.

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    This is one that ts|s actually mentioned in a recent thread that works well:

    When detailing chassis parts or painting under the hood, in addition to newspaper and tape, aluminum foil works well to mask parts from overspray. Foil holds its shape and can be pressed tightly around an item, unlike newspaper. Plus it is easy to remove and you do not get any tape residue if left in place too long. Just be sure not to use it to cover your battery or alternator posts.

    It you find you have a wire that chaffed off the insulation and want to seal it up so it doesn't corrode, you can melt some hot glue over it. This also works well to seal up other wiring splice repairs.
