Lucky find.

The screw holding the spout on our vintage kitchen tap gave up the ghost on Friday, naturally resulting in Jimmy copping a spray. The tap unit is so old it has some obscure non-ISO thread dating from a time before we became one of the last countries to join the world measurement standard 40 odd years ago.
Happily I found a bent rod in a useful tin of old bits that's a millimetre perfect fit, wedging beautifully against the base of the sink, I doubt I'll even try to source a new screw now, I'll probably just replace the whole unit with something that has more reach eventually.
