Default Dumb Schmuck

yea I've been a dumb schmuck.

I have a pole pruner, it mini chain saw. Fitted a new chain this afternoon but it would not cut a thing, the chain would no go round. Took it apart and found a loose screw that was allowing the drive sprocket to spin on its axle. Fixed that and tried again, this time the chain would go round but still not cut........upon investigation I'd fitted the chain the wrong way round.... dumb schmuck.

We have all done that when in a hurry to get the work done only to then spend another 5 minutes turning the chain around!
