    Lamps for Tying?

    Hey all... I am contemplating a change to my tying station lighting and looking for recommendations on the replacement lamp. I want as close to "true color" with the new lamp and low heat (compared to the halogen lamp I currently use). Thanks in advance for any feedback! Steve Cole

    3 very simple tying tips

    The first two I have used for decades. I always clean bench debris with a roll of 1'' masking tape. It is a better way to clear the area than vacuum, brushing or trying to blow stuff away. Just rip off a few inches and apply to fluff and it is captured. I would recommend Duck brand masking tape...
