I forget just how ingenious DB can be!
The key for our car has been playing up more and more. A few years ago, it was the electronic receiver (of the key) inside the car that needed its battery changing. They charged us an absolute fortune for changing it.
DB had previously taken the key apart and cleaned the circuitry. For a while, it worked really well. Now it was playing up so much, that we were having to take the spare key with us when we went out.
The other day, he took it apart again. Circuitry still clean. Closer investigation revealed that where 3 little black mounds were sited, they were no longer high enough to touch their corresponding dimples (I know, I'm so technical aren't I) to complete the connection. He knew he couldn't easily raised the mounds up, so he looked at dropping the dimples down.
Utilizing an old and thin bit of cardboard plus a single hole puncher, he punched out 3 holes:
You can`t beat a hubby that`s practically minded! Nice job! My DB is no DIY man at all, so I have to figure out stuff all by myself if I need to make repairs around the home.ReplyDelete
I am very lucky but I think it is because he can think around most things whereas I can't always do so.Delete
Clever stuff! Well done on a big savingReplyDelete
Well, you've got to try haven't you.Delete
Hurray for handy hubbies! Well done DB!ReplyDelete
Well done DB - surprising what you can do if you put your mind to it, money saving too! xReplyDelete
He said "Thank you"Delete
Excellent! Thats what I call brilliant recycling even if it is only a scrap if cardboard!ReplyDelete
Whatever comes to hand is the motto in our house!Delete
Ohhh very clever! I like the hole punch idea xReplyDelete
He just quietly goes about mending things, most of the time I miss what he had done until it is finished.Delete
