Sometimes a tool is not enough for a convenient and quick performance of various works. Many of them can be bought, but to save money, most are easier to do with your own hands. Let’s consider 2 ideas of tools for self-production from the system of a paint brush.
Mini hand hacksaw
To make such a tool, you need to saw off the handle from an old paint brush.
A hole is drilled in it from the sawn end.
Then a jigsaw blade is hammered into it. If the blade is worn out, you can pull it out and insert a new one.
Such a tool will allow you to cut wood, metal, plastic and other materials in hard-to-reach places.
As you can see, this is an extremely useful and necessary tool that you can easily take with you and use without electricity.
Glass scraper with replaceable blades
A workpiece is cut from the aluminum corner.
Its length should be equal to the width of the prepared small door hinge.
On one shelf of the corner, 2 holes are drilled to connect with the hinge. The second only needs a hole in the center.
Saw a longitudinal hole in the handle of a paint brush with a cut-off brush. You need it to screw the corner.
A door hinge is screwed to the corner on the handle. A trapezoidal blade is inserted into it before clamping.
The result is a scraper for cleaning glass or any other smooth material.
To avoid cutting yourself, you need to make a cover for the blade. To do this, you need to warm up the plastic pipe, and squeeze it in a vice.
After the pipe has solidified, a cover is cut out of the flattened part.
