Many tools can not be bought, but made independently. And for this you do not need to strain too much. Dozens of useful devices are easily assembled on your knees in just 5 minutes, and then serve no worse than factory ones.
1. Wood cutter from a self-tapping screw
To make a miniature cutter, take a self-tapping screw and cut off its head. Then grind it at an angle, forming a descent.
With an engraver with a small cutter or a round file, select the metal inside, forming a blade. After that, we heat the self-tapping screw red-hot, and cool it in oil. After hardening, it can be threaded into the handle. Everything, the cutter is ready for use.
2. Nozzle with Velcro for engraver
You can make such a nozzle by drilling a nozzle with Velcro for a grinder with a crown. The resulting disk is drilled in the center, after which we tighten the screw on it.
Thus, we get a shank for installation in an engraver. Now it remains just to stick sandpaper on the Velcro.
3. Cool knife sharpener
Take a bar and drill two holes in it for the shanks of the grinding nozzles for the engraver. We insert one cylindrical and the second conical abrasive so that they fit snugly.
Now leading a knife blade between them, we can sharpen it.
4. Drill stop for drill
Take a pop rivet and remove its stem.
Instead, a thin drill stood up. Now we set its output to the desired drilling depth, and crimp the rivet so that it holds securely.
In the future, the drill will only drill to the limiter.

5. Refinement of the emery skin
When grinding with a sandpaper for a break, its base breaks. To prevent this from happening, glue reinforced tape on its back.
6. Original door handle
To make a handle, take a piece of a threaded stud, and with two nuts, clamp a bolt with a ring at its end. Then put a tube or hose on the thread of the stud. After that, we similarly fix the bolt with the ring on the other side.
This handle is mounted on the door with four nuts. It turns out very original and practical.

7. Mini screwdriver
A small screwdriver can be turned from any steel bar. Ideally, it should be thicker in the handle area.
8. File from hacksaw blades
Take 5 hacksaw blades, put them together and drill in two places closer to the center.
Then connect them with two screws through these holes. Be sure to place nuts between the blades. Then pull one edge through the standard holes with just a screw.
At the other end we fasten the tube, which will serve as a handle. As a result, we get a file that quickly removes both metal and wood.
