Always check the bottom of the box

    This is kind of a Homer Simpson "DUH!" story.

    This past July I ordered some blades and one oil filter from J-Thomas. Everything arrived, except I could not find the oil filter because it was not in the box. I just blew it off, figured they forgot to put it in there (and me, I didn't check the invoice slip or bothered to call them).

    So yesterday when I was doing the equipment maintenance I decided to use that box to stick some of my old blades in. I emptied out all of the paper that was in there (you know, the packing paper they put in there for the objects in the box won't bounce around) and low and behold underneath the paper, was my oil filter. :dizzy:

    Actually if it was Homer Simpson it would be "DOH!" lol. I've done stuff like that. They use so much packing material you can't find everything.
