Tip of the Day: Stud Holes

Screen shot 2013-02-13 at 21.44.57The best thing for keeping stud holes clean are the little foam tubes you can buy as filters for roll-up cigarettes. Just empty them into a section of your stud box, soak them with WD40 (to prevent rusting when they are in the stud hole), and then when you want to pack a stud hole out, pick one up, fold it in half, and push it into the stud hole sideways, it’ll spring outwards a little and stay in place. They don’t degrade as cotton wool does, and remain easy to pull out with a farriery nail when you need to put a stud in. Magic!
