Some homes have rodents in the attic. Others have bugs in the walls. My house has an ever-expanding washer infestation. I don’t know how it happened. Every time I return home from a successful shopping trip at the hardware store, I find a few wayward washers in my bag. Every time I search the tool chest for a misplaced item, I’m confronted by a cluster of washers. So what can be done with these unwanted washers? If you have a welder, a knack for metalworking and a fair amount of patience, then you can transform these washers into a functioning axe. In a recent video, YouTuber Hassan Abu-Izmero demonstrates how to turn washers into a Viking axe.
