Over the years I've noticed that people who are really good at their jobs seem to know a few little tricks that they've figured out to make their work go better or faster. I'm not talking about big flashy stuff; just little day-to-day things that you've discovered on your own through experience or trial and error. It's the kind of stuff you feel good about teaching a helper because you figured it out on your own and it really makes sense. Mike's epic "splice thread" was full of practical stuff like that. As a rookie with no real mentor, I learned more reading that thread several times than I learned in several days of manufacturer-sponsored training. It was great. So, what's that thing that you figured out how to do? The little trick-of-the-trade that nobody taught you but that saves you time or makes you better? Sorry if this is too general a question, but I just love learning this kind of stuff.
