. . . . . . . and some other stuff too.
Sometimes, homemade is the best!
Seems to be better, we'll have to see if it stands the test of time.
I like making and fixing things rather than buying new unless, I find a great deal on craigslist. Good job Mike.
Hi John, yes, the problem last year is that none were available late in the season, so I resorted to the method recommended for repairing plastic I found on the web. It just did not hold so a new solution was needed.
I love making homemade tools. Something even better about using them then.
Hi Kev, yes especially when they try to gouge you for a .75 cent piece of plastic and want 60 $ for a whole new rake. Looks like this should hold. Being aluminum I'll have to be more careful not to damage the asphalt shingles on the roof.
Que tipo habilidoso... Hace tiempo hice una palita a partir de la carcasa de una PC, después te enviaré foto.
Ha ha Doug, now electronics and especially computers is something I don't mess with.
An excellent job, time and use will prove if the effort, which I'm sure it will, was well spent.
Hi John, only time will tell. My concern is damaging the roof shingles with the harder aluminum. Definitely do not want to have a to put a new roof on the house before its time.
Ah, go on and splurge, buy yourself a new one. I just spent $60.00 having a new gasket put on my 1988 Ford F250 fuel filter. At least you would have something to show for your money, as opposed to me!
Hi Harry, I guess I am just too much of cheap prick. LOL For now this adaptation actually works great, it is juts a question of how long will it last.
Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without. Love it.
Hey Mark, that's the general idea. Can't do without though, not sure the roof could take a full snow load. Thus my solution.
