The Dremel to the rescue. The Dremel and an angle grinder are a couple of several indispensable hand tools that I own. I love these tools and use them regularly.

When I was working my employer made us delete that rule!

The 'rule of thumb' has been said to derive from the belief that English law allowed a man to beat his wife with a stick so long as it is was no thicker than his thumb.

Pretty soon we will have no rules left!

Rule of Thumb was a term for master brewers' mash temperature. But, maybe that's the cover-up story. I'll mind my Ps and Qs (pints and quarts).
