I'm midway through ripping out my old kitchen ready for the electrician tomorrow. Whilst trying to shift a very stuborn screw I slipped and smacked my elbow on the oven. Being hot, sweaty and bad tempered I punched the bottom of the worktop to make myself feel better. Unfortunately the claw hammer that was on the worktop promptly fell off and bashed me on the head.

I now have a sore elbow, a sore fist and a sore head and to make matters worse that poxy screw still won't shift:sob:

Holding the unit to the wall.

Got it sorted I dismantled the cabinet round the screw and then used the claw hammer to shift it.

Much brute force but soo satisfying.

brute force is always the best way... although when I pulled that fireplace surround out in my house, perhaps it wasnt... it was damn heavy!!

If all fails, just get a bigger hammer.
 
I sliced my wrist open when I did my kitchen, was on a screw that held the plywood down on the floor made a bit of a mess but just stuck it back together with electrical tape lol

lol at fingermouse. Did the same when I was 19 and put my hand through a window at home. Should have gone to casualty really but electricians tape was so much easier.
