1.Just like everyone said it??s a drill bit.
2.Never was there such a variation in spellings. Rawlplugs.

4.Bicycle reflector.
5.Wheel brace.
6.Nail heads.

      I do as little home repair myself as possible so I can only take a stab at a few of them... I vote for Revenant's answer though... :) Interesting, very interesting.

      I forgot to mention that another obstacle impeding Greek DIY is the fact that a drill bit is called the same thing as a trephine. That's gotta hurt...

      I am now going to reveal to everyone my strategy for getting all your quizzes absolutely right (NO PEAKING everyone else):
      1. Either I know it or
      2. Cheat and look at everyone else's answers or
      3. Guess and then
      4. Sulk and then phone a very clever architect friend and then
      5. Argue with said friend
      6. Think of something silly.

      So, here we go:
      1. Drill bit for wood (Bosch, circa 1997, heh, heh, heh)
      2. Rawl plugs (which in Greek are called 'ourah'. The Greek "r" resembling the Latin "p", the local DIY labour market suffers from mass hysterics when people turn up asking for 'oupahs'). Anyway...
      3. Proof that you are a member of the local Wikken coven - wax cat balls? C'mon, Jon, who are you kidding?
      4. Cookie cutter used by very sadistic chef, possibly wife/witch which makes sense if No. 3 applies
      5. I'm tempted to say a softbox fastener or a kite attachment if the rods aren't made of metal.
      6. Absolutely no idea, but quite possibly a picture of my liver cells, given my current condition
      7. Wire brush
      8. A metal sheet in which you have painstakingly drilled a large number of small holes with micrometric precision. Well done, Jon!
      9. Knobbly plastic thingummyjigs
      10. Sex toy used by Action Man (GI Joe for Americans). The alternative doesn't bear thinking about.
      Please send my prize money to my architect friend in lieu of flowers I now have to send her as a result of steps 4-6 above.

      These are pretty tough for me, so I am actually not going to rack my brain here. I do know the first one is a drill bit! [Right?]
