Hardware Mispronunciations, pt. 3

It’s been a while since I’ve done any of these, but here are a few more:

Concreek – concrete

Pacifically – specifically (not a hardware item, but a mispronunciation anyway)

Filter head screw driver – Phillips head screw driver

Backpack mower – backpack blower (one of my favorites)

Moss balls – moth balls

Air reflector – air deflector

Wheat scraw – wheat straw

Smacklin’ – spackling

Feedamice – feeder mice

Surgical outlet – the customer was apparently referring to a surge suppressor

I’ve got enough for one more list, so I’ll save the rest for later.
