Plastic is Fantastic!

"Everyone should own a few plastic/nylon/Delrin tools as part of their general shop inventory. Why? So you can move metal without marring it. It's good to have a few plastic mallets, some rod, a block or two, and an ever-useful short length of 4-inch PVC plumbing pipe to get you out of a bind."
