Yankee Handyman - No. 233H North Bros. Mfg Co. Div Stanley Toolscomments (1) March 1st, 2010 in Project Gallery
It always amazes me when I hear stories of what kids were doing back in the day! They would kill to go outside. Chores had to be done first. When Dad was nine years old, he had to clean the blinds. Now that meant taking them down... you know the 3 inch aluminum blade blinds, bring them into the tub and scrub them down, hang them to dry, and then remount them. Getting the screws in and out by hand was a chore for an adult let alone a nine year old, but leave it to Dad.... He got him a Yankee Handyman Screwdriver. Take em down, put em up... became a lot easier!
