Homemade Rubber Mallet

Don't own a rubber mallet? Just cut a slit in a tennis ball and place it on the head of your hammer. Keep the tennis ball in your tool box and you will always have it handy.

To keep a traditional rubber mallet from making marks, slip an old sock over it and secure it to the handle with a rubber band.

Homemade tools:

Butter Knife for a straight screwdriver
A straight end of a table for a paper cutter


Philips Screws I have used an old time Can opener
Use the same for an awl. Make do drill and tack and staple puller
A bent paper clip For Tweezers
A Hammer? Not the easiest thing to replace. A brick/Rock/ the handle of a butter knife/Pliers, Monkey Wrench

And how about Pliers? Never been able to find a replacement.

Saws? other then ruining kitchen knives

A Vice? Someones elses body /My Feet /A large in place rock

Yep I am the type of guy that when it comes to having to repair or open or shut something. The right tools always run away from my toolbox until the job is done.

Everything thing I wrote has successfully got the job done.
