Husband and the wife with three accidentally stumped off fingers about to try and re-sharpen an electric lawnmower.
The Scottish Word:

Rake.

“If you’re certain the electric is aff this time fur sure, then – and only then – have a rake in the box and see if you can find the sharpening tools.”

Translated:

rake: search amongst things.

“If you are certain that the electricity is off this time for sure, then – and only then – have a search around in the box and see if you can find the sharpening tools.”

[rake spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
