    Thank you Dennis and James for the info on sorting my sawblades - but I'm with Caroline now!

    After getting over the initial great distress of having mixed all the different brands and sizes of blades I was part way through comparing - to discover my nirvana of saw blade choices, I realised it cuts out an entire frustrating thought/conversion process of thinking that say a 2/0 should be the right blade for the job, loading it up and then deciding it doesn't feel quite right, then going through the process with a 3/0 and a 4/0 etc.

    Now, I pick out a blade and look at it, decide if I need to aim for a skinnier or thicker one - and cut out the whole irritation of the theoretically correct grade blade not being the right one.
    For me, ignorance is bliss (possibly not exactly bliss, but a pleasanter feeling than irritation).

    Well think on this:

    There's a saw blade manufacturer I know and his son needs to be privately educated. His daughter is at an expensive finishing school in Switzerland and his wife is pushing for a new fur coat.

    I's only due to the rise in broken saw blades, that he manages to get by. Dennis.

    I think that every time I buy something from Durston that ends up with a frustrating hair pulling out session with Matthew. I love to look at his skiing holidays on their FB page or be told can this wait intil after my Xmas break? Of course, that's what we're here for!

    Still think we are happiest Sally! I'm usually a perfectionist but test tubes would be a step too far for me but then you haven't seen the state of my bench once I start working

    Hi Joella, I've ordered a load of plastic test tubes. Might have to pass the spares on to classmates.
