Incidental Thought #2

When performing a job, it’s always best to have the right tool available – an old maxim, but an accurate one.

Due to weight loss, I have been having to put new notches in my belts.  While a heated ice pick does an okay job once in awhile, when you’re doing this regularly, it just doesn’t hold up.

Knowing I would have to have a belt notch party again this week, it occurred to me last week to buy a couple of real leather working tools.  So, I picked up a notch cutter and an awl.  Together with the heated ice pick, I made very quick and easy work of creating the new notches.
