    Today is the Queen's Birthday (Queen Victoria that is) but it is a tradition to celebrate our current queen, Queen Elizabeth ll's birthday on the same day as Victoria. In any event, it is a holiday and a long weekend.
    We have an interesting view on the "screw" by a Canadian that wrote a book on the subject and we have a 'step saver' tested as well as a woodshop staple. Enjoy.
