    Wrong Size Wrench? No Problem!

    I collect left-handed screwdrivers, they are never used in the USA. They are known in Europe as Pozidrive. In wide circulation and use by IKEA, although they do not sell or recommend the use of such screwdrivers.

    I hear they have a rocket program similar to NASA.

    I think the diameter of the earth was first measured by the French in Metric before Archimedes could float.

    I have one for sale. I got it in Canada.

    not saffron. Not petroleum jelly.

    Hi QuilinF Not trying to be rude but saffron is not Turmeric, not even distantly related. Google.Petroleum jelly is overused in many cheap skin creams and BABY lotions. Just like GMO's it is not to be recommended for use on humans.Virgin coconut oil is good.

    Wrong Size Wrench? No Problem!

    A definite NO. Open end wrenches are a danger to knuckles. Use the correct size ring wrench or a socket. Knuckles do not last forever. Wrenches are cheap.
