    Another very useful hack this guy has a fantastic wealth of information

  2. Jerry Johnson II on April 15, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    Great tips Sir an thanks for the knowledge.

  3. John Fisher on April 15, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    If you used a 10mm bit for the pilot holes on the inside of the line before cutting with the holesaw, the scrap centre becomes a star knob,just epoxy in a nut! Thank you for having the patience to explain everything in terms an amateur can understand. Merci from Normandy, France.

    oooh new font!

  5. Ray C. on April 15, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Very nice video Colin. Broken screws, broken bolts and nails can all be removed with a drill in reverse or if you can get a hold of the other end of said fastener running the drill in forward.

  6. M Hoft on April 15, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    Hello. I like watching your videos and it is also instructive to make things. What’s in that white block attached to the column drilling machine that you can see in the video?

  7. dmb95ta on April 15, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    The guy has a wooden watch! Sweet!

  8. Jared Andersen on April 15, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Good job pops.

  9. Chelsea Metayer on April 15, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    You view your epoxy as half empty. I see it is half full.

  10. RaminR on April 15, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Thanks a lot Colin… And happy new year!!

  11. Roger Rayburn on April 15, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    I really like your channel. It is always useful and interesting. I look forward to the day when you include a hack to remove the plug from a hole saw. Hopefully without a lot of damage to the plug because I use a hole saw to make wheels for wooden toys. Getting the plug out of the hole saw is one of the most time consuming challenges I face. It slows down EVERYTHING!

  12. Buddy Carroll on April 15, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    I spend a lot of time in my wood shop and thanks Colin for the great shortcuts and tips.

  13. Ayman Sweiti on April 15, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    The epoxy stand is what I need. Great idea! Thanks Colin.

  14. robert cale on April 15, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    how do I find these links for stuff you are talking about?

  15. Bronson Stephens on April 15, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Very cool video. Thank You

  16. Stu Farnham on April 15, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Hi Colin, I wish I had the hole saw/pilot hole hack 24 hours ago, I had to drill 4 2” holes through 1.5 inches of MDF. Would have save a LOT of time and wear and tear. Thanks for all you do. Stu

  17. almosthuman on April 15, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    When drilling a larger hole with a hole saw, the easiest thing to do is mount the new, larger size on the mandrill, then slip the old size over the bit (inside the new size). The old saw will keep the assembly centered as it slips through the original hole.

  18. Christopher Fox on April 15, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Love your vids sir, keep up the great wOrk

  19. Graham Allen on April 15, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Nice one Colin and love the neat tip for removing the headless screw. Happy New Year. Graham🇬🇧🇬🇧.

  20. Pyro_Chip on April 15, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Love these videos Colin! Your channel is amazing!

  21. Andrea Rivers on April 15, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    This is a simple project that would be useful across many hobbies. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Scott louis on April 15, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    I have been making wheels & found that by drilling at the edge got rid of the dust like yours, good ideas

  23. Ex-Law Enforcement on April 15, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Well Dag-Nab-It, Colin. You Sir have more Super Trick’s than Batman & Superman COMBINED have TOGETHER❕
    I’m gonna save this video and Try All of these in my shop for the Broke-off screw. These STAND’s for the Glue is Awesome👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼❕❕❕❕

  24. rjtumble on April 15, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Dang it Colin, why didn’t you post this video last week, when I was burning holes through some walnut with my hole saw!! 🙂 Thanks for the tips.

  25. Ron Davis on April 15, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    When you were gluing the legs on if you would’ve just turned it upside down and put it down on the piece of wood you would’ve got them to where they were perfectly put on instead of as crooked as the dogs hind leg like they were

  26. C Spann on April 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Great hole saw tip! Now the sawdust has a place to escape to. In the time it takes me to keep raising the hole saw and clearing out the trapped sawdust, I could be drilling the 4 holes and be done with it. And those holes make a great place to squirt hot glue when I goof it up.

  27. Sapele Steve on April 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Fantastic tips as always Colin! Thanks for posting this……………. 🙂

  28. Bram the Wadesmill woodturner on April 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Love the hole saw tip and a great glue pot stand too.
    Cheers, Bram

  29. Bruce Rodtnick on April 15, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    A few days before I saw this episode on YouTube I made something similar for my glue I took two one and a half inch PVC pipes, cut them at about 3 in, glued them to a shelf. They work great

  30. Catfish Cave on April 15, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Wonderful glue holder Idea! I’m thinking a fancier finished one for mustard, ketchup and honey.

  31. fapping2quelaag on April 15, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Nice tips. Thank you.

  32. Sal C on April 15, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Great little stand… Thank for posting 🙂

  33. andrea vallotto on April 15, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Woodworking, and hot glue? Are you serious?!

  34. medicms2001 on April 15, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Fantastic tips with the hole saws

  35. Neil Hendricks on April 15, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Thank you. I’m frozen out of my shop until spring here along the 45th Parallel in Michigan.
    We hope to move in March to a better location. I’m so looking forward to getting back into the shop.

    I’ll be watching and learning. The holes for the holesaw will likely help a lot using a 6" holesaw making corn toss boards.
    Blessings to all.

  36. j dog on April 15, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    I’ve been storing my glues upside down for years but not just so it’s always at the tip of the bottle. I do it so that the air that gets trapped in the bottle dries out the glue at the bottom of the container, not at the top

  37. 비었던상자채우기 on April 15, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Thank you. Nice Tips.

  38. Chris Sewell on April 15, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Cool glue stand. I may adapt that idea to work on my peg board wall, along my bench. Just cut some pegs to fit into the side of the stand, or just hang it (as you made it) on the pegs.

  39. Phil Boardman on April 15, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    We tend to cut a good inch off the box that the epoxy came in, and then glue a slightly bigger base to the bottom of the packet, no drilling needed and it works too……!!

  40. Artiet59 on April 15, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    I watch all different fancy maker channels, but I still really love this channel. Colin’s very calm demeanor and great instructions are great. Thanks Colin

  41. Harry Davis on April 15, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Thanks for sharing, Colin.

  42. David Harvey on April 15, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    You’ve inspired me, I’ve been meaning to do this for years. I have half used bottles everywhere in my shed. When the weather get close to freezing it takes an age for it to run down. Thanks Colin

  43. TJ'S WOODWORKING SHOP on April 15, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Awesome Tips and Tricks My Brother I love it good job,Hey Happy New Years to you and all your Family and Friends Ok, I will see you later and keep up the good work 🙂

  44. West Yorkshire Catapults on April 15, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    heres a tip…i boil some water put it in a small plastic tray and stand the epoxy bottles in, after a minute the epoxy is nice and runny so easily comes out. i believe it goes a bit further too as you can get a thinner layer. but watch out as the epoxy is at the state of been heated it can cure faster. i use a 30 min cure 2 part epoxy. #wyc

  45. John Thompson on April 15, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Great idea for the broken screw.Sure I will be doing that soon lol

  46. Hans de Groot on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    So many great tips in this video. Thanks for sharing.
    It seems that you explained to me the best method to free indented screwed nails from pallet blocks.
    I tried it with a plug set before but not in combination with a drill.
    It should be a great solution. Some things are so easy when you know (are shown) how to do it.

  47. Mister Hat on April 15, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Why not always drill the pilot holes to the inside? Drilling them in the middle just looks bad for no reason.

  48. Fred Derf on April 15, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Simple and effective, I like it.

  49. Kenny Ginn on April 15, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    I’m a towtruck driver, and the other day I towed  a young gentlemans car the other day and he had the same last nane as you. I didn’t ask him if he was related, but Knecht isn’t a coomon name so I was wondering. I’m in Tucson, AZ, got any relatives here?

  50. debeeriz on April 15, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    wrapping painters tape around the plug is quicker than waiting for a heat gun to warm up
