That solves the problem, kind of a mini chip collector.

I stopped using wooden pencils years ago. Now all I use are the cheap Pentel type of mechanical pencils - you push on the eraser to feed the lead. No need to sharpen, or find your sharpener, and you can get a dozen for a $ or 2. Each comes with 3 leads, one ready to use, and when it runs out, just hold the point down and keep pushing on the eraser to load another. You can buy lead refills also, just make sure you are buying the size that fits your pencil. I keep some in my shirt pocket, and in the shop have several in varying places - so when I use one, lay it down, and can't find it later, I always have more at hand.

Crazy good idea, Alexis! It contains the shavings, and it makes the sharpener easier to keep up with around a messy shop like mine. Thanks.

It seems I never finish what I

Good one,Alexis, I use those pencils and sharpener too, never thought of that method. just let the shavings dribble on the floor. It would work good in the shop, kind of bulky for in the field tho.
Thanks for posting, always good to see new ways to do something.
Always good to hear from you too,and see your projects. You are so inventive,in the way you think.

I like the way you think Alexis,

It is an inexpensive solution to help keep your work area clean. It doesn't get much better than that !

Nice idea, Alexis. I've always had trouble gluing poly... I think that's the reason glue usually comes in poly bottles.
