Our volunteer repairer hero, Keith shared with us a story about one of those items we have all broken and assumed was simply a candidate for the bin. Such a simple repair!
I discovered that his wooden hanger had got broken…
Fortunately, I have a collection of various panel pins and nails that I kept from clearing my Grandad’s house (all neatly sorted into old tobacco tins).
So I held it in a vice and put a panel pin both ends
Fixed and back in service
