Stripped nail head

If you are trying to remove a piece of wood but somehow you broke the head or otherwise damaged it you are probably trying to figure out how to get it out.  One of the best ways is to use a pair of locking plyers and a pry-bar.  You will get the plyers over the head of the nail and then with the pry-bar lift up on the plyers.  The combined force of both will allow you to remove the nail much easier.

Protecting your garage and tools from water

If you use your garage to store your car as well as all of your tools and other items, it is a common occurrence that it may have water.  This water can drain into boxes or cause damage to other items.  Instead of building shelves and trying to keep stuff off the floor, why not create a waterproof dam around them.

Spray foam is a great product that will allow you to create a barrier around items that you don’t want to get wet.  If water does get into the area it will come in contact with the foam and divert away.  You can easily create these dams for a few dollars and if you ever need to clean out the garage, you can easily knock them down, sweep them away and start all over again.
