I did a search to see if there was a similar thread already, but I didn't see one. Some things are not worthy of a thread all their own, so why not have a single place to post all those little quick tips that we have learned in one place? I have a couple..some of which I posted elsewhere, but they are good, simple tips that maybe a lot of people would find useful... 1. In my repair and maintenance kit, I keep a mineral oil soaked bandana in a medicine bottle. This is handy for wiping my sharps, and preventing them from rusting, without worrying about anything leaking in my kit. I have had it in there for 3 years now, never dries out, never leaked; 2. Batting gloves are a great alternative to Mechanics gloves or bulky work gloves...they are sturdy, grippy, and do not interfere with fine motor skills. They are my go to gloves for the woods. This pair is in it;s second year, and no holes yet. 3. 15 ML bottles fit perfectly into shotgun shell holders, to make your own spice kit. 4. 40MM grenade pouches are abundant, inexpensive, and not very useful for much because they have a large opening at the top, and a small one at the bottom. But, if you have any kind of Molle panel or organizer, they can be very useful. Here, you can see I have used them to hold my knife, my pipe, and my hatchet. I cut the cover off of them except for the pipe pouch. You can find these grenade pouches for roughly $1 apiece. 5. I started using a leather welder's apron this year in my kit. It has turned out to be far more useful than I ever dreamed...I use it to sit on, to kneel on, as a clean place to set my stuff or work, as a pot holder, as an apron when I am whittling or carving, to keep wood chips off of me and to protect my legs in case of accident, and a variety of other things. It has turned out to be one of my most often used pieces of kit. I got the 24 x 24 inch for under $20. I've even rolled it up and used it as a makeshift pillow in my hammock, with the strap around the bottom to hold it in place. Money well spent. Those are my tips.
