You’ve Lost the Weight; Now What?
At any time, it is fair to say that millions of people are on some weight loss program. Those who have succeeded, we salute you. Success, nonetheless, comes with its own drawbacks. Read on for a simple but elegant solution to a common problem. (Note: this only works if you have access to some chemistry lab hardware).
Prevent Wardrobe Malfunction!
You try on that T-shirt & shorts combo that now fits nicely. You head out the door for your morning walk to keep that weight off. You’re not half way down the block & oops, the shorts are now around your knees. All is not lost, science tools to the rescue.
Science Tools to the Rescue
The solution is obvious-add another notch to your belt. You could use your electric drill or some scissors but it’s a job that takes a steady hand. One slip of a sharp bit or blade & that beautiful leather belt is ruined. The best tool for this is an old fashioned , simple cork borer once found in every chemistry lab. As you might gather from the name, this is a tool that is used to put a hole in cork stoppers.
Cork borers are now made with pretty thin metal & lose their cutting edge after just a few uses. Sharpening is the answer but with what?
A tapered abrasive stone on a metal rod can be mounted like a regular drill bit. A couple of clicks of the trigger & you’re done. Or, do it by hand with just a few twists of the wrist.
Cinch that belt & start walking!
