3rd Hand Game Changer





I thought you would be interested in seeing how I used your 3rd hand product to hang crown and other trim. Working by myself, I could not have done it any other way. Granted, it is not very elegant, but the plywood jig holds the crown at the EXACT sprint angle. I would have preferred to tap the end of the PVC cap and use a lock nut, but I have limited metric taps. I used an O-ring on the shaft to stabilize the plywood jig. I can immediately think of 5 things to make it more elegant and practical. I left the O-ring on the shaft and it served as a soft stop when releasing the top.

Thanks for your 3rd hand product, it was a game-changer for me!

Kaizan Foam helps keep organized

Jeff Fox, a Machinist, sent us these pictures and said, “Using your foam and loving it. I traced all tools with your pen. I used a router attachment with Dremel tool, set depth for tools and cut away. Cut great and smooth. Recommend it for clean smooth cuts.
