Every once in a while you get one of those ideas. Hey, I could use $foo to do $bar, even though it was never designed to do that. Whhy didn't I think of this before?
One of those ideas I had is: a coat rack has pins sticking out to put your coat on. Why not use gear leavers instead? I was able to liberate a few gear leavers from cars that were to be demolished.
But the project has stopped here. I have a bunch of gear leavers waiting to some day turn into a coat rack.
