    Cleaning the old leaking wax ring off of the toilet and flange. Worked great, but now I gotta torch it.
    PS. I know, a wus, but I wore disposable rubber gloves :oops: .

    wus or not rast I think wearing rubber gloves around toilets is pretty good thinking.

    We have found our hives tools to be quite handy around the house....for all kinds of stuff!! We have one in my toolbox, hubby's tool box, sometimes in the truck, one in each bee jacket...and several in the tool bucket! Our neighbor asked us where to get them when he saw me prying nails out of the side of the porch with one :D

    My husband loves his hive tool... as a molding prybar. The narrow blade slips behind fine woodwork to ease it off without gouging the wood. I may get my next one from Rockler, though! I, too, noticed the price. But the ones marked "Brushy Mtn" make it easy to identify when the guys at work try to pilfer his tools.
