Ever need one of these? Do you know what to ask for? I have known the correct terminology for many years, yet I can never remember it when I need to ask for one so I have to resort to "I need four large thin washers with a small hole." Then the hardware person says, "Sure. We have a large assortment of fender washers on aisle three."
How hard can it be to remember "fender washer"?
