My first Sugru hack

(viewed 1128 times)
The monitor cable kept being knocked out of the socket on my netbook, so I
hacked it better. The elastic retainer can be tightened and loosened.

BTW, this is the first post from my Nexus One :-)

Mending is better than ending, part 2

4. After drying overnight.
5. The view from underneath after drying.
6. A bit wonky: will it fit properly?
7. Yes, it will! The completed blender.

We've used it a couple of times since; so far it's holding...

Milliput's a modeller's epoxy putty, hand-workable before setting and workable with tools thereafter; I'll definitely be using it for more repairs after this. It's also available from my local model-train shop for £2.10 for 4oz, so much cheaper than a new blender :-)

Mending is better than ending, part 1

The plastic socket that connects the motor of our blender to the blades somehow came loose and was ground away by its own nut, making the blender useless. Rather than buy a new one, I tried fixing it with milliput, a type of modeller's epoxy putty.

2. The unset putty in place.
3. The nut held loosely in place by wet putty.

We were cleaning caramel off the ceiling for days...

... exists solely to flip out and kill people. But he occasionally hacks on Factor and wails on guitar. Reading may help, but then it might just make you more confused...
