TIPS O' THE TRADE 

LEVELING TRACK:
Wedges are always creeping and slipping from position under the track. Instead of using wedges, try cutting up a bunch of 1/8" Luan into 2"x11" pieces and do the same with 3/8" Plywood! Drill a hole about 1" from end of these pieces for bundling with sash/cord loops and storage on truck. With 2x4 Cribbing and these 3/8 and 1/8 increments you can do a better, faster job at levelling track that will stay put. Dicky Deetz



TEASER POLES:
When cleaning up a pool, you need something long, light and strong to reach out and get those leaves, etc. You also want it to telescope down for easy storage. Well, the same thing goes for something to use when you have a "Teaser" to hang in front of a bunch of back lights on the set! Go to a Pool supply and buy a few inexpensive "Pool Poles". Add some eyebolts on each end for two hanging lines, some Hargrave clamps for the cloth and you've got the ideal "TEASER POLE"!  Phil Rose (Key Grip on Sabrina).
