German term or phrase: das ein oder andere Ding drehen
Der letzte Satz in einem Weihnachtsschreiben an Kunden. Dem Brief wird ein Akku-Schrauber beigelegt. Und sprachlich soll darauf Bezug genommen werden:

"Wir werden uns auch in der Zukunft daran messen lassen, den offenen und ehrlichen Dialog mit Ihnen zu pflegen und freuen uns darauf, wenn wir mit Ihnen gemeinsam noch viele große Räder drehen können. Und für den Fall, dass Sie in den kommenden Wochen im häuslichen Bereich noch das ein oder andere Ding drehen wollen, haben wir diesem Brief eine entsprechende Hilfe beigefügt.
