    Today I had to level something in the bathroom. I did not feel like going and getting my level, sso, I put some water in a cup and used it.

    What have you used in place of another tool that worked well enough?

    An 18", or longer flat blade screwdriver doubles as a pry bar, or tire iron

    I regularly use my 6” bench grinder as a pencil sharpener.

    A 12' crescent wrench works well on a screwdriver to remove the construction plug from a toilet flange.
