Help First Aid Rquired
on: October 16, 2007, 07:37:45 PM
I was attempting to remove a  cracked light fitting that had been cross threaded and as usual I had nothing suitable for the job so I used my shortcut but put a bit to much pressure on the handles  :oops: As a result of my shortcut is rather bent out of shape
So is it worth trying to repair or just get a new one and not be so silly again  :twak:

I would consider contacting Gerber (or their UK representative) to see what they suggest.  If you think you can bend it back safely, then that may be an option, but if you think the damage is more extensive you may want to consider contacting them for repair.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

I may just opt for getting a new one as the existing pair closely resemble the late great John Waynes legs I will find out about the cost of repair but won't expect anything but bad news it's not called rip off Britain for nothing

It's nice to see that you've got high standards when it comes to customer service :)

That's the way it often goes, but if they are willing to replace the tool at little to no cost to you, they might seem that much more attractive!
