    Electric screwdrivers are largely to blame for the shocking decline in standards of workmanship over the past twenty years. What were once known as skilled tradesmen are now qualified idiots able to screw anything and everything with black or silver screws.
    I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it.

    I tend to use the gold screws an they are less likely to snap when you cheese the cross head off and resort to hammering them in

    If they are using Screws at all then they qualify as skilled tradesmen.

    Most of the buggers just bash in as many nails as they can. usually ungalvanized too.
