DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat

flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which
you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the
workbench with the speed of light . Also removes fingerprints and

everything you forgot to disconnect.

as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the

UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard
cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents
such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector

Can´t be!

Regarding the UTILITY KNIFE: Last year our Mustang club had an exhibition with some cars in a large shopping mall and we had a booth where we sold all kinds of stuff, like merchandise from the club, scale models of Mustangs and some stuff provided by a large Ford dealership who acts as a kind of sponsor to the club.
So we get those boxes with Mustang and Shelby bar stools and one of the guys takes his utility knife and...... you know how it ended, don´t you. :-)

How true but I have to admit when I'm doing any work that it's myself who is the most dangerous tool about.Has anyone ever come across the fraction factor with me it depends on the amount ie if there are 6 bolts 5 will come out 1 will be ceased or 5 and 4 will come out and 1 ring hardly ever changes.
Roy I'm glad you put the advice to good use......lol
