Pencil Keeps
Miter Gauge Sliding

The other day the miter gauge in my table saw was sticking in the slot, and for the life of me I couldn't find a can of dry lubricant. So I improvised with something I always have close at hand: the pencil in my apron pocket.

After blowing out the sawdust, I simply "scribbled" on the sides and bottom of the miter gauge slot with the pencil. The graphite made things slide freely again.
