I will be AFK (away from keyboard) for the next week or so, traveling to a Navy reunion in TX. I may respond to comments, time permitting, but probably won't do any posting.
Everyone talk among yourselves, and help yourselves to the free ice cream on the sidebar. Those folks post good stuff all the time. :)

Due to the presence of a professional chef (Younger Daughter) in the household, we have a professional faucet on the kitchen sink. She's fussy about things like that. :)
I installed it, with the help of my lovely, thoughtful wife, at the end of March. Unfortunately, the internal "nut" (e.g, a long, threaded brass sleeve) which extends downward through the hole on the back of the sink wasn't tight enough. Turning the faucet arm back and forth in daily use managed to loosen it over time.
As a result, the whole assembly wobbled, and rotated a bit. Not good, that.
So today I finally had the time to crawl under the sink. Removing the very large brass nut and three-side "anti-rotation" collar is necessary to re-tighten the sleeve.
Problem is, there's virtually no room for me under said sink. I have to slide in between the P-traps on the two sinks, under the cross-connection which permits the discharge from the garbage disposal to flow down the main drain under the shallow sink.
Between that, the water lines (shown above) dangling on my right temple, power cords, and couple of other dangly bits, I can just get both hands to the bottom of the faucet.
Then reverse the process. The large brass nut which hold the whole assembly together (also shown above) is larger than all but my largest monkey wrench. There's only about 4.5" from side to side, and only a vertical tool can reach the nut. After achieving "finger tight", it can be turned by the monkey wrench about 1/3 revolution per effort.
This, while my wife holds the assembly from above, to keep it from turning during the tightening process. It's not hard, but it's difficult, if you know what I mean.
But the deed is done, and we're going to sit and start watching Fringe again.
