Just found a store display by Hayes. All those special screws for that odd situation.

That has to be a joke, as some of them would never be able to be screwed into anything.

Tee Hee Hee :bg:

My favorites are :-

' For holes too near the edge '

&

' For holes not square '

They would ALL come in useful one day though, I figure !

NICE FIND Jose !

A place I used to work.
David & I, used to keep all the 'weird' screws & fixings that came from RS-Components.
In a box of 100, you might find 1 without a slot.
You might find 1 with no thread.
You could even find 1 with no thread or slot.
Also eccentric & bent ones !

We collected them & when the RS-Rep. came round, to see if we were happy with their components...
...David & I would get our 'sample-box' out...
...& discuss the problems we'd been having VERY SERIOUSLY with the Rep. !

;)

BAD BOYS !

I'm not embarrassed to say there have been cases I needed some of these! :dope:

I'm sure there on the aisle next to the board stretchers. ;)
