I just about bust a gut the other night. I was reading on another message board dedicated to model trains and some English guys were showing off their famous wit.

I was in B&Q yesterday and got this cracking new stuff called ‘No more glue’. It’s brilliant, it’s like a bit of pointy steel rod with one flat end and you get about 200 for three quid!
  • I got some of those but had to take them back because the flat bit was on the wrong end.
  • Yes, but if you accidentally stick your fingers together with these ‘no more glue’ devices you’ll find it much more painful than superglue.
  • yeah but they don’t work too well on metal… or plastic… or glass
  • I had some, they seemed to be missing a slot on the flat end, I tried turning them with pliers but they didn’t want to go in. I tried making a bigger pilot hole which they went into OK but fell out again. Can someone please explain how to use these things before I end up hitting them with something?

If anyone plans on trying this new product don’t hit them! I tried that and now I have a box of bent ones plus a very enlarged thumb! I’m sticking with the glue…
