    Your shop is a lot cleaner than mine, RD. Iím still trying to remove sanding dust from skim coating and sanding the Corvette, and that was in a separate room!

    Hi 55RD,
    Thanks for posting that - very clever. I have a former boss who after a lot of welding school training, repurposed himself as a welder. I think he might have some occasion to use the tip.
    Thanks, Doug

    Here is a good tip that works good for removing gummy adhesive left behind from stickers/decals, etc. In my case today I finally got around to removing some Velcro strips someone had stuck to the vinly dash on one of my cars like 20 years ago for a sunshade, and it was in a hard-to-reach area that couldn't be scrapped with anything, and I didn't want to use any solvents. I just tear off a chunk of very sticky Gorilla tape and keep sticking it on the adhesive and just keep pulling it off a little at a time, and after several slow pulls with the tape the adhesive all came off clean.

    RD: Have you ever tried 3M adhesive remover? It works great and very quickly and non abrasive...

    Yes, I have tried 3M adhesive remover, but sometimes just a piece of sticky tape is an easier solution for most stuff. If that doesn't work then I try 3M, or something else, like trying to remove widow tint adhesive of which I've found nasty Acetone works.

    My brother-in-law was changing plugs on an overhead cam engine with the deep holes through the valve cover and the extension came off the spark plug socket and he tried several ways trying to get the socket out. So, he got a locking extension and used a piece of dental floss to pull the trigger back to get it to lock-on to the socket. It worked, and I never would have thought of that tip.
