hammering in screws

(can't find the screw-driver, have no nails)

I always keep a well-equipped toolbox handy.

I, like the view, still said...

it's a bit of a boy thing, isn't it?

or maybe it's just that my jobs used to be changing light bulbs and unblocking sinks (actually, I seem to have lost the plunger), the decorating, the gardening - the girly things

crikey, I need to get my act together!

what colour is your tool-box then?

(and no, that's not a leading question)(you are so unbelievably cheeky - I saw your comment over at mel's and I have to admit it made me quite sad)

Dave said...

Sorry, was it possible to misinterpret my comment? I have two tool boxes actually; a blue metal one and a red plastic one.

At least one of them (as I said) is kept hand - the other, in my new house, will, I hope, be in my workshop.

I, like the view, still said...

two. . . I'm impressed

I have acquired a kind of power drill thingy and learnt how to use a chuck

the only problem is it came with attachments for wood drilling and I need it for masonry

using it makes my hand shake

Dave said...

You need some masonry bits then.

A shaking hand may come in useful one day.

I, like the view, still said...

oh, you fell for that one!


I, like the view, still said...

. . .your new house!

good news, I hope?


Dave said...

No, just a pipe-dream. I have a meeting in London on Thursday to discuss my options. Homelessness is one of them.

Mel said...

Okay, I admit it.
I've hammered in screws.
More than once, too.

But I now own a toolbox.
Well, it's sorta a toolbox.
I call it a toolbox.

k.....it's not an official toolbox but it's got tooley stuff in it, so it counts.

I don't need to tell you of my tool situation, do I? Yes!! It is very important to have a 3 pound sledgehammer and an 18 inch screw driver handy....

Suffice to say... I got tools. C:)

I, like the view, still said...

well craig, only the two? (!) I must say in my experience a good bash with a big hammer always helps

and I would have thought it was better to have a selection of screw drivers, with different size heads for different kinds of screws


but then, I'm only a DIY beginner - so I need educating


mel I'd expect nothing less of you. . . and I bet it's a really funky box


(guess what, the screw I hammered in? which was holding up my cuckoo clock. . . let's just say I need to put a rawl plug into the plaster and do it properly!)

dave :-( for homelessness, it won't come to that surely? :-) for coming to the big smoke - anywhere near SW15?

Dave said...

I have no idea where places are in London, and SW15 means nothing. I'm travelling from Liverpool Street to Baker Street, Thursday afternoon.

Mel said...

<---has those whatzits pluggy dealie bobbers that go into the wall that you put the screw jobbie into....

<---adores her powerdrill and all the funky bits

<---has the random holes here and there to prove it! :-)

Dave said...

Good morning. What's the weather going to be like in London for the next few days?

I have a tool kit. Barney always whinges about how it's a typical woman's tool kit when he borrows it which he does often. What's more, he gave it to me.

I also have a nice solid hammer and a big screwdriver and a set of tiny screwdrivers. I decided to get the hammer when I hit my finger with the brick I used to keep handy in the dining room under the cupboard :)
