Drill sharpening angle is 59-1/2 deg, the hex of regular nuts placed flat to flat is 60 deg included. The drill should "fit in the "V" the 2 nuts makes and be centered. This ensures that one land of the bit is not longer than the other (which will make a bigger hole than the drill diameter) This will not gauge the relief, just the lands.

It also will keep you from making the angle too steep, reducing the effectiveness of the bit, and keeps the angle the same. Good tip, been wanting to make a good gauge, that will work!

Empty laundry detergent bottles work great for storing and transporting smaller quantities of used motor oil. (One jug per oil change, roughly, in my case.)

Just make sure that when you're trying to remove the spout, you don't also remove the threads for the cap.

Easy to come by, usually big enough to hold a bit, don't seem to degrade, and have a nice handle to carry them to the truck with.

Been a while since someone posted, got one that I used the other day. For a level that will go around corners, make long distances or from one side of a truck to the other (obstructed) use a piece of clear tubing and water, a drop of food coloring. Add a tee in the middle with a valve to "adjust" height. This can also be used to make a cheap water/mercury manometer.

All rubber seals can be a pain to install, dish liquid slides them right on and dries not leaving a lubricant behind.

Need a glue for tool box drawer liners? CAT Glue, How about for the magnets that fall of of parts trays? CAT Glue. Gaskets that move when assembling parts? CAT Glue. WARNING it takes damn near a jack hammer to get gaskets off after this is used, or a bench grinder with a wire wheel to get it off your hands. If applied correctly it will seal the world.

I usually use New (Read: CHEAP) ATF, but noisey ratches. Sockets wrenches and anything of the like will get a over night or a couple of days of a good soak every once in awhile...
Keeps your tools looking good as new, and your ratches quite, one thing i cant stand is a noisey ratchet...

Tools rusting a little, stop it by throwing them in a bucket of diesel fuel.
