And why is it that when removing a number of screws, it's always the last one that refuses to budge?
The Law according to Mr S*d, or "Left-Hand Fred" as he's known to his engineering friends, states a number of things. My favourite is "It is not possible to overestimate the stupidity of even the average apprentice". You can substitute anyone you like for "apprentice"!

Sods law simply : 'If it can, it will'
I know this to be true, I rebuilt an Austin Sheerline and the designer worshipped at the temple of SOD!

I am sorry about this shocking pun but going on the original subject matter being discussed here, 'we may have screwed the thread up' as we have wandered off a bit. Possibly my fault, sorry chaps. ::)

Not to worry Sheerline it lightened things up a bit as I think I detected a few 'cross threads' in there somewhere. ;D Graham

Ther are a few 'nutters' on here I think. Several of them should make a' bolt' for the door before others become 'bored'
AAh, the old ones are the best eh!

  Speakin' of left-and freds, what about wire wheel spinners? Woe betide the bod who forgot "left-and fred on the right of the car and t'other way about", and mixed up the front hubs.

  First inkling that something was wrong was the spinner bouncing down the road. And you knew the wheel would be not far behind it!
