Another use for toilet paper tubes

Postby Phillip W. Lenke » Mon May 17, 2010 5:04 am

I was recently removing the manifold and pipe from our 49, I did not want to disrupt the paint around the opening in the sheet metal ,toilet paper tube between the pipe and the hole worked great to protect the paint from chipping.

Nice tip Phil! Should be good for "Tip of the week".

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I like the idea....we should keep the thread going and come up with everything we can do with TP the roll and packaging....Its my favorite product....no additives or artificial coloring.

Yup, I agree with BD, and it is now the latest Cub Tip of the Week :!:

But won't you get oil all over everything? Oh, I guess you shouldn't use one of the ones you already used as an oil filter? :wink:
