This is advice from an old man who has been married for more than 50 years.

Regardless of whether or not the tool works, the much more important thing is to thank and praise your wife for obtaining the tool for you. She needs to be loved and spoken kindly to about her thoughtfulness.

If you can exchange the tool at Lowe's or not doesn't make a bit of difference in the larger picture. I have quite few tools that my family has bought for me that I seldom (if ever) use, but they don't have any idea that it isn't absolutely the best thing I've ever received.

Love her. She's more important than any tool that has ever been made.

At least, that's this old man's perspective.

I agree. My wife of (now) 47 years once bought me a dehydrator for making jerky, etc. It had no heating element, and the directions said the meat had to be cooked first. What the heck? The unit was worthless.

I bought a new unit on the sly that was what I wanted and looked similar. My wife never knew the difference.

Tom DOES have some really good advice...

That being said, if it doesn't work, just exchange it for one that does. I worked at Tractor Supply and even with no reciept, we exchanged broken things all the time. Even if it looked liked user error, if its for some chinese widget that cost ten cents to make, we would do it because it made the customer happy and they'd be back for something else later on. I knew when things had been abused, but most people who worked there dont know tools thus didnt know.

Im sure Lowe's has the same policy.

Id have them exchange it for something identical, and just never tell her. lol.

With age comes wisdom! Well. that's the way it is supposed to work anyway.
A lot of young people would be wise to print your posting and use it as a guideline for living.
I too have been married for over 50 years and I strive to use the wisdom gained over all those years.
I'm probably not as good at it as you, but I do try!! I hope others will take your fine advice.
If you are a grandaddy, I bet your grandkids are proud of you.
