I get the feeling that Russ has not fully absorbed the seriousness of this thread completely & that his request to have it moved to somewhere non-existent is just a sign of how inconsequential his reaction is.
Jeff should strongly consider making it a "sticky"

Hey, I just caught a Higgs boson passing through my right earlobe! Does than mean I have made the Large Hadron Collider inconsequential?

What a great thread on April 1st from Rob the new guy. Here in the US we do have backward drivers and regulations. As an example, after seeing a James Bond movie we decided to ban spinners that stick out too much by allowing safety spinners where the ears are bent back and then a no ear type. Talk about Loose Nuts! They decided that spinners are the most dangerous hazard to pedestrian.
I want to address the world wide problem of left hand and right hand drive cars. As a solution to correct a big mistake on my part, all those who have purchased one of spinner tools, I will make available a second tool designed for right hand vehicles only at no cost, just pay for the shipping.
I'm going back to my work bench to see how to label the new tool. Where do I stand and what directions do I face to determine Left or right. Up dates to follow.

You guys need to keep up with technology....Loose nuts are never a problem up here now that I've invested in the correct kit for prevention thereof.

Three sizes..tapometer, Knockometer, and blootometer.. All available in R/H or L/H drive versions. And all cordless.

My nuts are fine! :roll:
