This issue's tip comes from Matt Poole, owner/operator of Raleigh, N.C.-based Matt Poole Hardwood Restoration Inc.:

Quick clamps are a great way to keep big machine cords and air hoses out of the way when working on a wood flooring job site. Someone a long time ago told me about this trick, and I've been using it ever since. The clamps can also be used for other situations on the job, like when you need to glue pieces of wood together.
