Dear Dave,
I love posing my skeletons but they always seem to be weakest at the spine between the hips and ribcage. I've inserted dowels through them but sometimes they break. Do you have a quick fix?

Hi Eddie, this happens to me all the time. If you never see the the back of your skeleton use an old "paint stick" you get free from the hardware store. I just hot glue them on as a brace.

  1. Dear Dave,
    I have a large runny sore that doesn't seem to want to heal.
    I've tried lancing it, I've tried squeezing it, I've tried cauderizing it.
    All attempts have met with no success.
    Any suggestions?
