Water Hose Repair
Fixing Barbed Wire Fences. I had some loose wires in the fence. After stretching I sometimes only had 2″ of extra wire. Not enough to make a few loops. I could use a pricey crimp at $1 per wire and it’s unsightly. For less than a few cents I made a wire clamp and the repair disappears.

Homemade Fishing Float. A little bit of wire, a swivel and some electrical tape for color.
