<bitch on> Open the package see several different sizes of bolts (grade 8 no less) for mounting. That's good at least they had the forsight to see that different flavors of saws want different size bolts. Look in package but no nuts. How much more expense / trouble would it have been to supply correct nuts for the bolts? cheap a.. basta.... !!! <bitch off>
Rooted around in my excellently orginized nut, bolt, washer, and all attachment bin (junk drawer). Found some that seemed to match but aren't the correct pitch -- they slip threads and won't tighten down under pressure. So off to Ace tomorrow after work to buy the correct nuts. You'd think after 35 years of collecting all sorts of crap from old machines/motors .... you;d end up with at least one matching nut. Aaarrrghhhh. Thank you -- yes I do feel better now.
