> "A box a left-handed wood screws please”.
When I served in U.S. Navy ships, it was "relative bearing grease" that
newcomers were sent to fetch.
Getting back to old tools and left-hand screws in particular, I "sorta collect"
(TM Todd Hughes) edge tools from Charles Taylor's Sheffield Tools Ltd. Said
tools are often stamped with the trade name, "Screw Brand" and the image of a
wood screw. A left-hand wood screw.
