Tom, I use a screwdriver type handle with a socket or the socket in my cordless drill for hose clamps. These are way better suited to the task. I use them quite a bit when I open and close the pool in Spring and fall. Many clamps and with the cordless drill it makes the task much easier.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

???? ABHOR ???? WOW !!! WHERE DOES ONE FIND SUCH WORDS ? 61 YRS old and I've never heard of it before. The Router Forums is becoming a language course LOL Is it because I'm CANADIAN that I've never heard of it, or is it because except for University, the rest of my education was mostly in French.

Abhor...WOW... definition = to regard with extreme repugnance or aversion; detest utterly; loathe; abominate.

I can honestly say I could never describe my relationship with any of my tools in that way...

I find myself suddenly starting to fee sorry for those poor screwdrivers...

Dan: abhor, to detest utterly. Abhorrent, hateful or disgusting. These are words whose original use came from landscapers in the northeast U.S. Primarily around the Boston area. It seems that these fellows loved most of their tasks but disliked very much the erection of rose arbours, which were a sought-after addition in the early years. they expressed their dislike by cursing the arbour and in the dialect of the region this word came out as Abba (sounding much like the landscaper on This Old House) Eventually, this word morphed from the physical object to a feeling. One of disgust and hatefulness. so you have Abba...abbor...and then abhor, which is the word today. As a lot of the work done in the area was for an affluent, educated group the word was thought to be that of an educated person. It is also used here in Canada and is common to those of grammatical bent, as in the U.S.

I got through high school English classes by reading heavily during summer, then turning in 30-40 book reports during the year. Read many British Manners novels, in which such words were common. So I know the word, but have used it maybe 3-4 times in my life, despite having been a writer (non fiction) for decades. It's a great word and has some real political possibilities these days.

Back to the topic. If you were going to be starting anew, which 10 bits would you want in your collection?

Maybe I'll start a new topic for a survey to help this project along...

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thanks, Tom...but would you mind waiting until I finish all the survey questions that I have in mind...?

I decline. I'm just moving things along as I see fit. I have many other projects, including writing projects, to take on another. I'm old, semi retired, and need long naps you know. I'll jump in from time to time. There are so many strings and posts on this question that it's more of a compilation project, and I just hate doing those.
