Shop Tip #230

I use a lot of rags
around the shop, and my favorite kind is cut from an old cotton bed sheet. After
years of tearing the things, I finally hit on a really fast and easy way
to cut a sheet into shop rags. I simply fold the sheet up into about
a 14" square, wrap it over with par of an old cardboard box and cut
it on my band saw.
This technique works
great with regular cotton sheets. Don't try it with terrycloth towels
- what a stringy mess!
