    I don't know if this has been covered before, but I thought I would pass it on.

    I am working on filling in gaps on my Feep (What? You havn't read about my Feep? Go ahead and read it, I'll wait... :) ) and I needed something to sand down the putty. While I was at Big Lots today, I saw the perfect tool for a cheap price near the registers, a 10 pack of Emery Boards for $0.48! Now this is my price! :thumb:

    They are great. Different fine grit on each side, just flexible enough to work gentle curves and stiff enough to work straight stretches. Anyway, I thought I would pass this one.


    p.s.: You did read about my Feep, didn't you? :p

    They're for sanding your fingernails. I get them out of the wifes purse for free. :thumb: FRED

    I found them at the registers in the local Big Lots. I bought two packages so the Spousal Overunit would not be mad at me for taking hers! :thumb:

    I find more good stuff for modeling at Big Lots and the Dollar Store than I do at the LHS. Except for their super glue which "stinks on dry ice"...Get that at Wal~Mart
