ShelfShould have been a bit longer so mains cable not bent against wall ...
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

I haven't got one of them :crybaby:

Has anyone still got a ratchet screwdriver knocking about?!!
I've got some that I inherited from my grandad who was a master carpenter.

I've also got a few of those long ones with a threaded shaft that you push to turn.
