Bike Tubes For Household Use

There was a gap between the floor boards and a joist running under my closet that would vibrate when the furnace kicked on. I was having trouble finding a solution until I thought, "what would Sheldon Brown do"? I figured cutting up an old schrader tube and wedging the pieces in to the gap to serve as rubber bushings is just the sort of thing he would have come up with.

My God! I'm astounded by your ability to utilize/recycle refuse from one interest to further your lifestyle as an unapologetic flaming Homeowner! I'll look into getting some old innertubes for my own dark crawlspace.
