There's a solution you can buy from the chemist, you put it on stick a bit of tape over it and it draws it out

Rub a pin over it...the sharp bit but don't dig.

You'll find the sweet spot.

Bloody evil mate. Not all screws but had a few boxes from walls and ceilings and my fingers are pretty tough, but these were horrible to use.

Cheers mate I.ll get to chemist tomoz hopefully.
Had a spot on my elbow few months back. I squeezed it and a cm long splinter popped out.
We only use collated but if I do have to manually screw (phnaar phnaar) I always wrap tip of finger with electrical tape, hate those little black splinters

I did just that after Canada way back when in the Mob. Crawling around the prairie in either short of flimsy uniform sleeves.

Squeezed a...I dunno..spot..ulcer...area of interest in my elbow and out came the best part of an inch of cactus spike.

Absolutely hate any kind of splinter. Cannot leave it. I’ve often dug a massive gaping hole just to get the c**t out. The feeling of a splinter gives me shivers

There's f**k all worse than getting something stuck in your foot.

Protected by the hard skin that's supposed to protect your foot but just deep enough to respond to pressure.

It's the worst

In this day and age if you don't wear gloves, the thin one's you are a moron. Off e bay they are so cheap and after a week you don't know you have them on.
