I went shopping for tools of mass destruction. But, sadly, I didn’t buy a pickaxe.
I asked the man in Homebase for advice on how to fix the two-part pickaxe together securely. He suggested I get a mattock, which looked pretty cool, instead, because it came already assembled. However, it looked more like it was for breaking stuff up than for levering stuff away. I explained to the man what I wanted to do and why I was looking at pickaxes. He suggested a bigger crowbar instead.
I bought the following:
- a bigger crowbar;
- a claw bar;
- a big cold chisel;
- two bolster chisels;
- a new pair of pointy-nosed pliers;
- a set of spanners, hoping one would fit the radiator, seeing as they didn’t have any so-called radiator spanners;
- a key to bleed the radiator;
- a bucket;
- a couple of Flexi Tubs to put the rubbish in to take to the tip.
The spanners didn’t fit the radiator.
