Something from Left Field: Fiberglassing your Fingernail

No, seriously, crazy cracks on toenails happen often enough in hockey and this is what I do to fix that problem except this time it was for a fingernail that couldn't stop snagging on everything.  Like the pillowcase.  Right after you roll over.

    A little bit of nail polish and you're good to go! So, when does the rest of your Personal Grooming series come out? ;)

    Hey Paul, keep it up and maybe SawStop will send you a tape dispenser ala your Blue Spruce Tools paint can opener.

    Speaking of crazy videos - have you seen this one of P.K. Subban doing the weather on CTV?

    Good video, James and a cool cause to get kids into hockey. They are all already better shots than me :) Oh, I'm significantly more than a half-inch shy of landing it in the back of the net... :-/

    I am liking the systainer first aid kit. I have to get me one of those.

    Where did you get a Festool First Aid Box?

    I like the idea.

    The Festool first-aid kit was a limited time promotion that has been long gone. But a guy on FOG (FestoolOwnersGroup.com) made a limited run of a first-aid kit in a Systainer with custom labels, etc. Now, the first run of that is done, but they are considering doing a second run. In all honesty, he has a better assortment of first aid products than the official one.

    Here's the thread for the latest re-run of the FOG first aid kit; you might have missed it, but PM the guy in case he has extras:

    Hahaha.....You guys???....should have checked with your girl. We have been doing this for years! Instead of the wide weave of the gauze there is a material closer to an interfacing with a much tighter weave. Available at beauty supply stores. Cut to size. Dudes think you're so smart. ��
