Tip - The Rubber Band Trick - If you need to remove a nail, criss-cross a couple of rubber bands over the top of the hammer before using the hammer's claw. The rubber bands will protect the surface that you're removing the nail from.
For mysterious, quantum-mechanical reasons, the screws that hold handles and doorknobs always eventually work loose. A few drops of thread-locking compound will permanently fix the problem, yet still allow you to remove the screw with ordinary tools if you need to later. A heavier-duty variety is also available for large bolts and machinery.
