Nordy-looking types, Nordy Rockler that is, were cruising the aisles looking for a screw....or a bolt or a jig
or whatever. They all seemed to be deaf too. Probably from working with saws and other noisy gadgets. Everyone was screaming at each other which was perfect for me.
This is another good place to go hunting for an over-the-hill second or third hand deaf husband/boy friend. You might even find a specialty model with a finger or two missing.
