The only thing to do is to buy a replacement item, then the lost item will reappear within days.

Dont even ask how I know this.cheeky

Today I finally got round to putting an old glass cutter back together. It has been sitting in meths for the last two weeks trying to get what looks like varnish off the little wheels.

On cleaning the second wheel, scratching it with my nail made it shoot off like a tiddlywink. I hunted around the bench to no avail. Resigned to only having 5 wheels I continued. When on the last wheel I noticed sitting next to my hand the errant wheel.

What gets me is how those pesky little elves/gremlins/gnomes etc manage to put it there without me seeing them do it.

I can play in that song, just bought ball link pliers and was sure my son took mine for his model helis, so when the new one arrived I put it where it should be - and found the old one... Probably I need spec-savers... sad

Further to my earlier post please note that the terms "Hyperspace" and "Safe Place" not only rhyme, they are synonymous.

It’s a variation on this theme, but the last time I broke down a compost heap I found three vegetable peeling knives - and they were still usable after a trip through the dishwasher!

I have heard a story that the sale of vegetable peelers plummeted when they started making them with brightly coloured handles.

I'm amazed nobody has mentioned 10mm sockets?
