    Controls on H/T ovens

    Is there a tool for this?

    Some snap ring pliers are slip jointed so as to be interchangeable between inside and outside snap rings. They will come apart easily. Years ago I used to play as a mechanic so I have a couple 3 sets in my tool box. Indispensable at times, other wise....? ymmv

    Mechanical Engineer designed his chef knife.

    I’m okay but here are two things to avoid.

    Glad you are okay! Seems there are accidents waiting to happen most everywhere... A few years back I was uncoiling a band saw blade when it snapped open and tattooed a cool 18 TPI stitch across my nose. An inch higher and it would have been my eyes!
