Worn-out nylons can be used to hold tools on pegboard if you run out of pegboard hooks or have something bulky to hang up. Knot up one end, then feed the nylon through the back, and then loop it through appropriate holes for the tools you want to hang. The nylons will stretch nicely to fit various tool shapes and will actually hold the larger tools more securely than the older-style pegboard hooks. This trick works best if you are able to gain access to the back of the pegboard.
A sharp mower blade is a key to a perfect cutting job. However, whenever you sharpen a blade yourself, always check it for balance. An out-of-balance blade can cause excess mower vibration and wear. One way to check is to tie a metal washer onto a string, thread the string through the center hole of the blade, then hold the blade up with the washer supporting it. The washer should be on center and turned perpendicular to the blade. The blade should stay level. If it doesn’t, grind it for balance on the back side of the blade. Always disconnect the lawnmower’s sparkplug wire before removing or replacing any blade.
