Hi Dave,
 
I wasn’t sure of the spelling either, but I know about them nonetheless.  The typically used by sign painters and other artists, and I recall a photo of a painter using one to letter a PRR passenger car.  I just hadn’t thought of using one drilling holes or applying glue or decals.  Great idea though.

Are folks with the shakes using maul sticks when working? Isolating and stabilizing your hands can make a big difference.
I had to Google this one, and it's spelled mahl stick (not maul).  Very cool idea that I had never heard of.  Andrew, thanks for the tip.
