I appear to have inherited Nutty's fettling skills
« on: May 19, 2008, 10:58:30 am »
Doing some DIY in our loft this weekend, Tim and I ended up fairly battered. Tim's torso is covered in bruises, and he grated his knuckles off with the plane. I ripped one of my fingernails out with a hammer, but the greatest moment was when I managed to hit myself in the face with a Fubar.

I am now seeing whether my tube of Trick and Treament will live up to the claims on the packaging and conceal the impressive black eye I am currently sporting.

That's a magnificent tool!

It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

You're sure this isn't just an ingenious story to cover up the fight you had?

I want a FuBar !
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Shame the videos on the website don't it being used as anything but a big hammer, the other bits on the tool look very useful for being destructive.

All of the damage inflicted could have been done with a normal big hammer, and the way of dealing with the big back panel of a piano, or the bottom section of the Armoire, is to just knock it over and go "Rarr!".

I want one though.

Wow, that website is slow!

Looks like a great tool. Dad would have loved one of those. I'd like one too. :)

Were you making a ferret garret?
Never tell me the odds.

'Tis a very useful tool - all those different hooks are very handy for ripping up floorboards and pulling out nails, and prying the legs off an old barbecue, and so on. However, it's probably a lot more fun to use it (and watch it being used) as a big hammer and shour "Rarr!".

Ouch, sorry to hear about your mishaps this weekend.  :-\

I had a bit of a fettling accident this morning, pruning a tree with one of those long things with a biter and a saw on the end, I pulled the rope and accidentaly let go of the metal pole, it cut the branch and then flew back towards me, I ducked but it hit my hands.  I now have some yukky cuts and a little finger that is swollen and won't straighten.

I just can't believe that someone at Stanley managed to get them to call a tool Fubar!  Presumably they'll be along with the Stanley Snafu shortly!
Actually, it is rocket science.
