If it breaks, is old or worn, I will try and fix it…
Generally, broken stuff can end up being thrown out, (when there is not a lot wrong with it). It can end up being too expensive to take to a repair shop, or to call someone in. I hate chucking things out, it’s such a waste, it costs you money, it’s not green and destroys the planet. So, here below is info on some of the things I have fixed over the years.
Plus… There is more info on tools, vehicles, restoring things, as well as things I’ve learned, and building new stuff! I hope it’s of use.
Fixing stuff around the house and garden…
Fixing stuff that’s not house related, objects, tools, etc…
