We are concerned with the double face cardboard because of its availability. Occasionally building materials such as sheetrock mud, lacquer, and cement will splash onto the sheets of cardboard and dry while in the trash. Most substances will come off with a simple brush of the hand or with a stiff broom. You can remove more stubborn areas with a square nosed shovel, inverted so the underside of the scoop is up. This will prevent the shovel from digging into the corrugation.
You should clean your battery posts and terminals at least once every year. You can purchase inexpensive tools at a store like Harbor Freight to remove the battery terminals from their posts. You also need a special battery brush. Prepare a mixture of baking soda and water to clean any acid residue on the battery. Always remove the negative terminal first. Follow this order to avoid any short circuits if the tool contacts the body frame.
For the beer lover, the obvious choice is a kegerator. If you cannot afford a kegerator, then the next best thing is a set of Pilsner glasses and the largest pack of his favorite beer you are willing to splurge on. It will be a hit and you will be rewarded with many thanks. Likewise for the wine lover, a simple but nice wine rack filled with wine will be wildly appreciated. Many stores offer a 10% discount if you purchase 6 bottles or more, so purchase a wide selection for him to enjoy.
I find it useful to buy many basic tools for use around the house at Harbor Freight. For this use, they fill the need perfectly. Hammers, screwdrivers, gloves, and blades are great buys here. If I am in the market for a more expensive tool, I may pick it up at Harbor Freight with the intention of picking up a higher quaility version in the future when my budget permits.
These units are simple in design as they consist of a 12 volt gel cell battery plus a couple of heavy duty 400 amp cables and rubber insulated clamps. These are extremely useful items as the batteries they have are powerful enough with its 400 amps to actually jump start a vehicle when its starting battery is totally dead. Its peek power rating is approximately 900 Amps. There is AC adapter which comes with it for charging the boost battery as well as a 12 volt cord for charging it from your car as you drive.
Casting about for something more robust than a hunk of plywood and some adjustable clamps, I found there are a number of folding workbenches on the market from manufacturers like Worx, Black and Decker, and sold at places like Home Depot, Lowes, and Harbor Freight. Their prices are varied, but they all have similar features. I especially like benches that fold flat, are easily stored, have built-in adjustable "vises", and can carry moderate loads.
