    Thanks for the video! Good ideas and hacks.

  2. mburke1211 on September 25, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    Your hacks are great, but your on camera and presentation skills are off the charts. You could do info-mercials. Not a bad last name, by the way. 😉

  3. Cristina Cocchi on September 25, 2023 at 8:11 pm

    Helpful hints thanks but not so good with passing current through a coiled power cord – it creates an ‘ inductive coil and that is why it becomes WARM😖

  4. Aaron Alquiza on September 25, 2023 at 8:12 pm

    oh ok, so James Corden’s is a woodworker as well.

    With a dowel you can use a washer that is the same size as a Dowel and the center of the washer will be the center to drill

  6. Meecrob on September 25, 2023 at 8:13 pm

    I don’t think number 5 is really a hack?

    Omfg…winding an extension cord from the middle – WTF F!!!
    Shop Hack #1:
    “Meeeeh, wind your cable in figure eight”
    “Meeeeh, wind your cable with a board”
    “Meeeh, wind your cable into a bucket”
    “Meeeh, wind your….SMACK!!!” “SHUTUP!!

    Monday. I’m taking all five of our extension cords and winding them from the middle (I’m going to mark the middle with paint and tape…because that way I can tell everyone what that’s for when they ask…and they too can say “WTF F!!! WHY DIDNT ANYONE TELL US THAT”
    WHY GOD, WHY!!!

  11. haroon ali on September 25, 2023 at 8:20 pm

    I like Extension board

  12. J J on September 25, 2023 at 8:24 pm

    You’re a very good presenter. Thanks for producing this video. 👍🇺🇸

  13. Mister Backster on September 25, 2023 at 8:25 pm

    YES! the electrical cord hack! nothing pains me more than paying for guys to find, unwrap, unravel, untangle extension cords DAY AFTER DAY! almost everyday!
    another thing, professionals, should have professional attire. overalls, coveralls, workpants, belt, knife/toolholder, and SUSPENDERS! yesmmm! nothing pisses me off more than when i ask a guy to do something, lift something, and the first thing they do is pull up their pants! i hate paying grown men to pull up their pants! like really!
    yup. but its hard running a crew. organization is key. nickels and dimes. thats what your making when you pull contracts from the company. and while trying very hard not to be an asshole when your witness to total lack of brains in action everyday and still try to make a buck.
    first thing i used to do. get rid of the dumb guy. sorry, but your a liability to yourself. prone to be unsafe, or whats the word for it, prone to…not very forward looking, hard time grasping cause and effect, but whats worse, thier a liability to the rest of the men. and sometimes its like a mutinee. you come back after leaving for ten minutes to get some coffee, and the guy cuts the plywood in half the wrong way.
    now i dont condone violence but there have been times when i have to stand my ground for calling it like it is. thats why i got out of the business. you just get too old to butt heads.

  14. Mike Cagle on September 25, 2023 at 8:29 pm

    I shut you dow at the word ‘hack’. This is a stupid " trending" word ( which I also cant stand) so why dont you just call it what it is; a tip or helpful hint!

  15. Ryan Santiago on September 25, 2023 at 8:29 pm

    I purchased an adjustable temperature heat gun on Amazon for $20

    Can blow warm air to fire starting air – so great for any application

    I also purchased a set of tips for around $7

  16. Dancing Alone wRentals on September 25, 2023 at 8:31 pm

  17. Gaz TV inc. on September 25, 2023 at 8:32 pm

  18. Janet Shaw on September 25, 2023 at 8:32 pm

    Which video shows what you made with the piano pieces?

  19. PM90Cal on September 25, 2023 at 8:32 pm

    I knew this guy had a hair dryer in his shop before he even pulled it out . No one achieves that level of volume naturally

  20. Sherri Koers on September 25, 2023 at 8:33 pm

  23. Michael A. Haynes on September 25, 2023 at 8:38 pm

    U had me at Spaceballs🤓👍

  24. Bill J on September 25, 2023 at 8:38 pm

    Interesting hacks, many that I already knew about, but the first 2 will be useful to me.

  25. Jano Djano on September 25, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    You should probably lower your number down to 5 👎

  26. Lebron Jameslol on September 25, 2023 at 8:41 pm

    the addive quantities of two 90 degree angles within a perfect circumference when equal will locate the center point. Im sure thats not right, been a long time since I did fancy math but its fun to talk like that.

  27. Ndow Roccus on September 25, 2023 at 8:43 pm

    Shop Hack #7:
    We use Velcro to wrap a lot of our items, two handles bags and power tools.
    Another item we use In tandem with Velcro, and that is Stroller/Grocery Carabiners. We use Velcro Wraps with Gromets to wrap around the handle of some of our cordless tools, and a stroller carabiner (5” – 7”) and clip out tools to whatever we can (we put hooks where we need them). Our work van has holes cut in the ceiling supports for weight control, it’s just big enough to throw an open carabiner into and stays put. Our DEWALT & Milwaukee bags hang from the ceiling and are easily removed and put away.
    Velcro and Stroller/Grocery Carabiners. Soooooooo useful.
    We use magnets to hold our hole saws too. They cling to the ceiling of our drills and saw blades cabinet (it’s full metal). They are the perfect weight to stay in place, even when van is on a dirt road in Massachusetts (we get wind waves/frost heaves in our roads, it’s like going over 30 speed bumps in five feet of driving).

  28. Jason Gabler on September 25, 2023 at 8:43 pm

    Hack #7. Hate to burst your bubble, but everyone knows it was the Vulcans who invented Velcro.

  29. Ndow Roccus on September 25, 2023 at 8:45 pm

    Shop Hack #2:
    I just made a tray yesterday, the mag trays are cool, but there is only one place they go. I now use a “Painting Palette”. It has six square trays, and six half-egg trays. I affixed neodymium magnets to the underside (strong small magnets), with superglue (held in place with a small nut or another magnet). Then coat the bottom with gorilla glue/liquid nails calk.
    I then marked each round tray with letters and square trays with squares. If I have multiple screws (like taking apart a laptop or something with a bunch of different sized screws), I can put them in a labeled tray, and write on a paper pad where that corresponds to on the item I am disassembling.

  30. Contessa Adella on September 25, 2023 at 8:45 pm

    I’ve a hack for not unrolling fifty feet of cable when you want four…it’s called “go out and buy a four foot extension cable” They don’t break the bank and if that’s your regular need, why mess about trying to make do with an unwieldy long extension….just store it away. No shade on the vid..all good stuff 👍. I obtained an angle poise desk lamp with a 9w fluorescent tube for beaming down into tiny and fiddly crafting actions.

  31. Dung Nguyen on September 25, 2023 at 8:48 pm

    Thank you for show us.

  32. Jason Meadows on September 25, 2023 at 8:50 pm

    There were two thing I loved about this video, first the tip for finding the way to get four even sections on a board easily because I too am terrible at math. Whenever one of my students, I taught history, tried to approach me with a math question I was like “do you want to get that wrong, then don’t ask me!” The second thing I loved was the Spaceballs clip!

  33. scfire304 on September 25, 2023 at 8:51 pm

    So this showed up in my feed in 2021 lol

  34. byron elenica on September 25, 2023 at 8:52 pm

    Very good. I just subscribed.

  35. Ndow Roccus on September 25, 2023 at 8:52 pm

    Shop Hack #3:
    I use that paint bucket (with a magnet on it) as a carrying tote for an extra pocket. Like if I need to put up a 2×4 in the attic, throw some screws in the bucket, pencil and tape measure fit in perfectly. Lite duty, lite carry.

  36. Ferdi Dede on September 25, 2023 at 8:53 pm


  37. Maureen K on September 25, 2023 at 8:54 pm

    These are all great! Thanks!!!!

  38. Ndow Roccus on September 25, 2023 at 8:57 pm

    Shop Hack #8:
    Last week. I just made a DIY light. It’s basically a mount/adapter for a Lithium Battery (power tools battery). Took an old mount we never use anymore (dewalt phone charger) and attacked to buttons (3 position switch) and an old led strip (cut and soldered) .One position turns one strip on (cut the strips into 3 LEDS), second turns on two rows.
    It’s bright enough and angled so it shines at what you point it at, and a bit above you. The second row, shines on three sides, almost lighting up the whole room.
    Made out of stuff that was probably gonna find a trash can (except for switch).

  39. Mark D Maker on September 25, 2023 at 8:57 pm

    Cool channel, new subscriber

  40. Dave Armstrong on September 25, 2023 at 8:57 pm

    Love the vid! Subscribed!

  41. Daniel Burd on September 25, 2023 at 8:57 pm

    That hairdryer also can be used to clear dust and small bits of material from your work space or project.

  42. Slev88 on September 25, 2023 at 8:58 pm

    Genius , pure genius.

  44. Conway Noel on September 25, 2023 at 9:00 pm

    Just a short note on extension leads particularly the reel type. If you use one of these especially the ones with multiple sockets you should always unwind the cable fully before use because heat can build up inside the reel to such an extent that the cable itself could burst into flames. I’ve seen it happen with a small portable AC unit and the fire damage was extensive. It’s just something to be aware of.

  45. Joseph Romero on September 25, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    awesome thanks for the App

  46. Ndow Roccus on September 25, 2023 at 9:05 pm

    Subscribed…just because of Extension Cord and Velcro.

  47. Norman Sidey on September 25, 2023 at 9:05 pm

    You need to be careful with the extension cord, if you do not uncoil it fully, there is a possibility of creating unwanted heat in the cable because of the coil effect caused. Otherwise some very useful tips.. hav a pleasant day.

  48. Frederick Wood on September 25, 2023 at 9:06 pm

    Extension cord. Wind it up with a figure of eight pattern. This stops the twist in winding or unwinding it. It prevents tangle too and should make things safer, easier , and last longer. It’s actually not winding it’s folding instead.

  49. Jesse graves Graves on September 25, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    My friend… Your shop is NOT organized.

  50. Passing Wind on September 25, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    The tip with dividing the wood blew my mind! And I’m a math guy. It’s genius.
