Celebratory Pan Throwing [Jul. 17th, 2006|03:35 pm]
susan smitten

We had these crummy fake-nonstick pans.

Don especially found them distasteful.

So we ceremoniously threw them down the chute!

Meanwhile, Don has mounted our good pans this way! He wants me to mention that he ran out of copper polish, so that's why they don't look as pretty as they usually do.

This is new, too. Lids go here!

I've got a small set of Torx of the sizes required for opening xboxes. :) Total coincidence there. And.. they're star-shaped! I've seen those oddly shaped 'new' torx or something that look vaguely squareish but I think it may be a different brand name.

The Ace Hardware at Festival City is finally almost very nearly a real hardware store. It's no Home Depot or Lowe's, but it's huge and I was finally able to buy some PC-7 epoxy in Dubai. :)

I meant star shaped, not "scuare" shaped. The handles are usually squared, but yes, the heads are designed with a pattern so 1) you can apply more torque 2) mis-inserting the tool doesn't mess with the socket.

Square drive is probably just the power tool 1/4" square drive, used for fasteners. I've seen this done too.

I must go to this Ace. I was pretty happy with the Ace at BurJumann, for the size. The "GMC" ultra-cheap australian/chinese powertools are actually decent.

I'm always going to the new ace. It's huge like, huge. Still not as awesome as hardware stores back home, but they've got an entire aisle devoted to adhesives.
