    Nylocs are great....but at the very least you want a ratchet spanner that I am picking you dont have.
    You could also hold the nut in a vice and lightly tighten the chuck of your pistol drill on the rod and drill the rod down the nut

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    @veitnamcam Similar they have around nine different types. They all taste slightly different and are different in size.

    And most are a favlourless mouthful of snot.

    I can't say I tried all, but I tried alot of European oysters over a few years over there. Nothing came close to a bluff.

    If your ever in Paris and love oysters try this place even took the Dude there as they let dogs in not that I'd waste oysters on him. Anyway have dinned here more than once. You will need to book though. Easy to get to as it's down hill from the Arc de Triomphe.
    They have alsorts of oysters usual start with 24 then go a big veal steak
