So I’m putting together Mom’s IKEA dresser…

I’ll be using this… When I’m not swearing.

My Dad gave me this as a gift many years ago. Living in a condo leaves infrequent need of a hammer still it is amazing the inscription has lasted all these years. Over 21 years since his passing.

Then again so has the price-tag he left attached to it.  $5.99 bought a lot of hammer back then.

If I had a hammer... Well Gee, I do.

If I had a hammer… Well Gee, I do.

    Isn’t it strange what it is that actually survives all of these years?

  • You should put that in a frame and hang it on the wall.

    • A good idea.

      I have an antique that will be kept in my family, my mother’s Woodstock typewriter.

    A mans gotta have a certain amount of tools (cordless drill and assorted bits to start with) no matter where he lives.

    • Agreed.

      • Nice!

        Have to show this to my husband. He is the handy man in the family, but his tools are all over the place. My kitchen, on the other hand, is spotless. 😉

        I’m jealous.

    • True.

    Torx fasteners & bits were invented by General Motors to infuriate customers , lower sales , make vehicle repairs more difficult.

    why does made in China products like furniture , shelves , appliances etc. now come with Torx screw heads?

    • It’s a conspiracy by tool manufacturers to sell you more bits.

          Your friends at C—— T— sometimes actually stock the special (appliance) bits with the little post in the centre. I have met clerks who actually knew they carried same and gave me the confidence to do a lengthy perusal until success was achieved in discovering them in hiding or perhaps just the sad evidence left behind of someone’s pillaging expedition.

    • canminuteman

      I guess that is another islamic corner of the world that tourists won’t go to. Maybe people will start to realize they don’t like us.

    Hope it’s not the style Ikea has just recalled.
