Re: Things lost in the water

I dropped a really nice dewalt cordless drill off the top of the mast. Figured it was toast and wrote it off.

just a couple days later I mentioned it to my neighbor & he said "oh no! You can rinse it and totally save it!"

it was noticeably lighter... ALL of the copper in it was completely dissolved.
