Not many people would go to this trouble. I had one with good plastic but rusty spring (not good for clothes if it rains). The one with broken plastic had a good clean galvanised spring so I went about swapping parts to make a good one as I have encountered the situation where I have been one or two short and can't justify a new pack yet.

Well, well. I no so alone after all. I repaired things that it is just easier to go the local market to replace. Just enjoy the challenge of figuring how things go together. It probably why put so much time in things that should simply thrown away. I even took time make some of the parts from scratch over the years.

It might the reason I not afraid to tear into something new just to see how it works if nothing else.

I am glad I am not the only one as well

Even have a couple that are two tone as one side gets switched over when they inevitably get stepped on and one side is cracked

Hey this is being a tight arse........
A light bulb went out. I had a look, the tungsten filament had come adrift from the end post.....
I swung it and eventually got it to grip on the post.... plugged it back in
Bingo, light.........

That's not tight. That's clever, hilarious and lucky, especially if you haven't got a spare in the house.
Considering a pack of pegs costs less then a light bulb I think bigted, myself and Tyler are way in front there.
My mate spent an hour or more opening up and repairing a cheapo $6.00 multimeter just because he wanted to see if he could do it.

Here's another. I wish I did this way more times in the past. These Riva ones are easy to do with a pair of needle nose pliers.
