I'm just working on putting my new guitar together and was at the point of screwing the neck on, and the screwdriver loses grip. I first worried 'oh shit, the screw's head is getting damaged, best proceed with extreme caution', so I carry on. Start another turn, and, 'ping!', same thing, only this time I noticed a little bit of metal stuck to the end of the screwdriver. I pick it off and think 'damn, gonna have to buy some neck screws - they'll take days to arrive. I'll give it one more even more cautious go'. Another turn, and the same thing. I look at the screw, but no damage, but again, metal on the tip of the screwdriver.
I bring it under the light and the whole fucking screwdriver head is crumbling away! The maple neck apparently owns the Stanley screwdriver.
Now I have to wait until tomorrow to carry on setting the badboy up
Conclusion: all defensive materials to be made out of maple and bubinga.
Wow, that's wierd! How old is the screwdriver?
