Re: Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

Unfortunatly every time he visits he will be interrogated and anal probed until he gives up his name and postal code then door number so that they can record the details of his visit, what he was wearing, his behavior and what purchases he made. They will alos note wether or not ha had a catalogue in hand and if not he will promptly be sent another.

While he is there he ought to get some Gripfill - its amazing when drilling holes in the wall for hanging stuff - squirt it in then push in the plug and leave it to cure - then when you come to screw it will not come out - ever.
Then shove a nail in the end of the tube and it lasts for ages.

You have to tell him that he must read every page of the catalog - apparently its the law. Should keep him busy and out of your hair for a few hours

Thats how it works (the "it'll come in use" strategy).

I have loads of stuff like that.
... He may not have thought of use yet for the extra 8 but he did have use for the required 2 ...

Matty. Could you possibly have had a twin from which you were seperated at birth ? I may know that very person.

Operation table project looms to conclusion; something is sadly missing .. Extending table clip/fastener thingy.. May well be in deepest darkest depths of garage or shed, never to see light of day again.

Do Screwfix do season tickets or loyalty cards ? .. Matty did mention a `certain busty women behind the counter` - is she very alluring ??

Re: Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

ALREADY!!!! ???

But this all started only a month ago, he can't be near finishing it yet - there is at least another 2 months to go.

I bet you have been nagging at him again and promising him all sorts, like an all expenses paid trip to Screwfix if he does it quickly.

For gods sake woman, have you no consideration how long such complicated tasks actually take?

The clip thingys will be stored in the safe place waiting for him to find them when he is looking for parts for his next task, in the bag and underneath the wotsitnames.

My term looms to conclusion does not actually mean near finished - More a case of me intensifying nag factor from gentle prompts & subtle hints to all out full verbal confrontational assault . One month of a dining table split in to 2 halves in the middle of the room with extension leaf sitting very comfortably on the sofa is, in my book, 29 days too long.
To backtrack : This all started with me merely mentioning that the broken extending table clip/fastener thingy was irritating. That was sufficient to warrant the onslaught of the first involvement of power tools - no simple hand held screw driver would suffice to remove said clip, `may as well do it properly` was uttered (& that very term fills me with dread). So the extending metal rail things had to be removed, because they would benefit from lubricating -`I`ve put the 18 screws in the fruit bowl` (as you do). Next came the `It`s got quite a few scratchs on this table top - I`m going to sand it down` ( I would hazard a guess here that he had spotted his electric sander on same shelf as electric screw driver). So the top gets sanded, then the pedestal leg `would benefit from a once over`. Then decision made that the sanded off finish was better than previous satin varnish `I`m going to wax it` (clearly the varnish did not protect against scratchs whereas waxed finish will armour coat it) ... 29 + days on his enthusiasm has now gone from waxed to waned.Yesterday it was decided that the task could be completed but the extending table clip/fastener thingys were lost ..`could have sworn I`d put them in the fruit bowl`..
Welcome to the world of 5 minute jobs that take 5 weeks.

Ps. I have now decided that the broken extending table clip/fastener thingy isnt the most irritating thing in my house

OMG!

There is an App! Screwfix App

There is another that has tools in it.
He needs this to help with the table thingy, it even has a dodgy spirit level in it.

No but it can help him find a wax applicator, or a toilet flush kit, or drill bits, or extending table fastener thingies
