Obscure screw added so appliance cannot be disassembled ( )

Basic blender went bad (motor ran but spindle wasn't rotating). I wanted to disassemble to see if it could be repaired. Three of the four screws were Phillips head. I had to cut the casing open in order to discover why I couldn't unscrew the fourth. It was a slotted spanner.

The screw head was at tho bottom of a 2 inch shaft. I destroyed the casing just to find out what the issue was.

I destroyed the casing to learn why my Phillips screw driver couldn't grab the screw head.

Really? It seems to me that if you believe blenders should be tamper-proof, you must believe that all appliances should be.


Bob Marley, the uncontested King Of Reggae, died of a brain tumor at the age of 36. Seven months earlier he had collapsed on stage during a concert in the US. He was given a state funeral and buried near his birthplace in St. Ann's Parish, Jamaica. His last words were reported to have been, "Money can't buy life."

If he actually spent his money on something like medical care, it is probable that money could have, in fact, bought life.
