    should you had brought your hammer with you

    Hi.
    Is the below sentence correct?
    "Should you had brought your hammer with you, you would have been able to fix the chair".
    Of course if we use "if" instead of "should" it would be correct, but is it correct if we use "should"?.
    thank you

    No, it's not correct with "should".

    Re: should you had brought your hammer with you

    "Should you have brought ..." is grammatical. But it's not very colloquial. We'd almost invariable should "If you had brought ..."
