Lipstick For LocksComments (0)
This article is from Issue 59 of Woodcraft Magazine.
the years, I’ve swiped a few items from my wife’s makeup kit in the service of
my craft. I’m particularly fond of lipstick, which I keep in my toolbox for
marking lock mortise locations in door jambs. For example, after installing a
deadbolt in a door and attaching the door stop, I wipe the lipstick (I prefer
“Midnight Passion”) across the end of the bolt. I retract it, close the door,
and then throw the bolt, letting it kiss the door jamb to indicate the best
placement for the bolt mortise and striker plate.
