I hear that. If we didn't have a past, we wouldn't have any good stories to tell at parties anymore. Who here is doesn't consider themselves "the king of mistakes"? :lol:

I make a lot of mistakes! I try real hard to not make the same mistake twice. I'm not sure if that is a good effort because it means I need to find a new solution for every one I make. :)
I have more questions than answers

I don't have one of those hemo's but I do have a tiny -about the size of a dime - probably rare earth magnet that I dug out of a speaker or something. This thing is super strong and if you catch a sliver quick before you drive it in it will often pluck it out. Failing that I found ( dollar store ) a pair of tweezers with a tiny flashlite in the middle which even though our eyesight improves with age still comes in handy! As for slivers -die grinders are the worst for me. :roll: :ugeek:
