So I needed 6 bolts to use on a firebox. Found the size I needed, had 8 in it I stead of 6, but you can only buy a blister pack of nuts in packs of 12. So now I have 2 spare bolts that I'll never use and 4 spare nuts that will just get lost or thrown at the cat when it meows at me too much and annoys me.
Why can't they sell a pack of 6 to match the 6 pack of bolts??? Just stupid.

I think I took too many. :shock:
Just hit my hark with the gerni and got freakin soaked in dirty greasy creosotey water too. Now I'm dirtier than the inside of the hark.
The cleanest part of me.

Well, the grumpy pills have worn off, because I had a win. Got a replacement firebox for the tri fire, but doesn't come with the firebox side door handle or air damper. Old ones were so rusty I had to angle grind the bolts off. So now I do have a use for the 2 left over bolts. (Still 2 nuts left)

Is it your tri fire you are doing up or saved from gumtree?

Or what about a pack that includes 6 nuts and 6 bolts in the one packet. That would make sense!

Man that sounds like fun!

Cleaning a bbq??!!??
I just light bigger fires in them and hit it with the hose when hot! Whatever doesn't come off can stay there, as I'm gonna add my layer ontop!

Awesome! Keep the pics rolling on this resto!

:lol: :lol:

The worst part is all those nuts and bolts you throw at the cat will miss and be on your lawn as you try to mow it

They will bounce around under the deck causing damage or if you choose to not use a catcher will embed in your shin


Sorry dude
