I'm the kind of guy that recycles and reuses stuff all the time. I'm always looking for ways to reuse things when their original purpose is finished.
So with that in mind I have held on the most of my used thread spools figuring that the nice heavy duty plastic spools would have additional uses once empty of thread. Yesterday while looking for something to hold open my snowboard gloves to dry I remembered the used thread spools and figured they would be perfect for this. Now I have cheap glove dryers.
What other uses have you guys come up with for your old thread spools or other such stuff?
