When a stovepipe is too small for the hole in the chimney, a bushing can be made of the kind of metal tobacco boxes that are curved to fit in a pocket. Remove the tops and bottoms of the boxes and shove them in around the pipe. If such tobacco boxes are not at hand, tin cans of any kind can be used by melting off the tops and bottoms and bending the remaining cylindrical shells into proper shape. - Contributed by Elmer Mc-Conaughy, Dayton, O.
A Screweye Driver An ordinary wire nail, 3 in. long, bent as shown and with its head filed square, makes a good tool for turning in screweyes. The square head is readily held in the chuck on most braces. The screw-eye can be turned in with greater speed than by the ordinary method. - Contributed by Robert T. Johnston, Buffalo, New York.
