Something to Hold On To
When I'm repairing or maintaining my farm equipment, my fingers usually get greasy, and it sometimes becomes difficult to turn the adjusting knob on my locking pliers. That's a problem when I need to adjust the position of the jaws. So I took a small washer and welded it to the top of the knob. This makes it much easier to turn – greasy fingers or not.
