Is it me or does the Axminster search engine seem to work on a different version of the English langauge that has long since been lost. I used to find this quite frustrating until I realised that you can put in a range of bizarre words that seem to come up with a list of results. For example if you type in the word a*se (to polite to say the whole word!) it comes up with a list which seems to focus strongly on sandpaper and sanding blocks which instantly took me back to the days of school toilet rolls!

Perhaps we should have a prize for the most bizarre.

Their search engine reads 'a*se' as an abbreviation of 'abrasive'?????

Anyway, what were you searching for by typing that in, Kev? :roll: :lol:

Cheers,

Actually, I think it's finding the relevant term as part of 'coarse', as in 'not fine' - coarse grit, coarse files, coarse threads, etc :wink:
