Recently I came across this:
"Today while I was doing a little work in the shop I achieved a great milestone in my woodworking. I got a tool out, used it to do the job and then put it back were it belonged. Not on the bench, not on the TS, but back in the drawer where I keep it. WOW ... what a day. Then, to top that off, when I glued things up I didn't wipe the glue off my fingers on my jeans or shirt, I used a rag I guess maybe there is hope for me yet."
Dear "Neat and Clean"
See, that just goes to show you how different we all are. For me it was just the opposite. When I started out, I always put my tools away. I always used a rag. But as the years went on, I began to realize the folly of putting a tool back in "its place" only to have to go and get it out again later. I discovered that while my rag might be anywhere in the shop depending on where I was working the last time I used it, my pants were always right there with me when I needed them.
