Strahm Sells!: August 2010

But is the Vise Grip included, too?

I went on a showing this morning that had as inclusions the washer and dryer.  When we got to the basement laundry, this is what we saw:

Replacement appliance knob

It kind of shouts out, "I'm broken!" -- even without the bottle of Shout!

A quick Google on "replacement appliance knobs" give over 3.5 million hits!  And all the replacements I saw were cheaper than a pair of vise grips!

Ingenious -- but not what you want to be remembered for . . .
