Jon Freeman De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1222* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 19 May 21


I think the screws for sockets and light switches in the UK are a bit of an odd size, or at least I canít think Iíve anything else using an M3.5 thread.

Overall, I think Iím pretty well set up for screws. Built up over the years, Iíve got 4 of these boxes in my shed. One holds most of my wood screws and wall plugs. One has machine screws up to 6mm together with nuts and washers. Another has larger versions up to 12mm. The last box has cup hooks and other oddments.

I donít really use that many fasteners and perhaps OTT but on the other hand, knowing you are in with a chance of having suitable stuff when you have a job to do is a nice place to be.

Oh, and inside and since trying to do the occasional thing with the printer, Iíve got a few of this sort of selection box, grub screws, countersunk screws, etc. , some heat inserts, small springs, etc.
