Not too unusual, but these sewing scissors are great for trimming cotton/rayon. At 3 for $6.39, great price ,and they’re sharp! Being 4 inches long and flat, they fit nicely into a little zippered tool kit.
I totally forgot about the china option, too. But dentist tools from a flea market… that’s some proper potential for stories to make children cry. Or adults.
I think I have this from watching the marathon man with Dustin Hoffman. Like my claustrophobia probably comes from reading Edgar Alan Poe.
Yeah dentists are just acceptable because they can get rid of the pain (the NHS dentists by removing the tooth without any further questions). But who doesn’t have any strange memories from dentist visits?
My first UK NHS dentist was an Indian bloke just before retirement and the practice had its last makeover in the 80s. Combined with the pain that brought me there it was one of these days you don’t forget.
I was considering g this too given the report on dry burning, but unless I start using fancy mtl wire, 28/29 just too thin to bother. I want to try the alien mtl coilology stuff so maybe I’ll brush then.
I am going through a real issue now, I’ve been to 3 private and 5 nhs dentists, bought a 3D scan. Not one of them has a clue what to do, and 6 of the 8 couldn’t isolate the issue. If I listened to the first couple I’ve had 3 teeth out for no reason
It’s not just nhs dentists, at least the ones I’ve gone to in London ( even the “high end” ones 0) are just nowhere near what dentistry is in the USA…and I say that as someone who really tries to avoid any comparisons as I have spent a fair bit of time both places and am acutely aware of how that rubs some the wrong way. there’s just no way around it- dentistry here, even with the tangible improvements in the last decade, is still 20 years behind in training, 10 in equipment, and that’s the good places.
I’ll also, while fully appreciating the nhs, say that nhs GP are more like nurse practitioners in the states.
Don’t worry there is a huge list of things England does better than the USA, like police not shooting random people.
Bottom line maybe I can thieve some tools next visit and get something positive out of it.
That’s why I get the non-emergency stuff done in Germany.They do have an attitude, too but price and the general experience are better there.
The NHS seems to be a target to slowly be destroyed and health care is getting much more expensive the next years but that’s not going to be different elsewhere.
Funny enough, people I know decided to get a tricky brain surgery done in India. Some of the best educated doctors with top equiment and a level of care that “was almost annoying” because they were constantly looked after by nurses.
