Are you a handyman at home?

Most of us do some domestic improvisations when we dont have the required materials. For example, our hindalium bucket started leaking once. Actually it has to be heat treated and the leak fixed. But having no time at my disposal, I quickly cut up an old cycle tube (made of rubber). I made a circular patch, applied sandpaper, dried the bucket and stuck the rubber patch over the leak with FeviQuik! Have you done any such improvisations at home?

Not only at home, but for 45 years I've been trades contracting and admittedly my lady just turned me on to the category in mylot. I suspect I'll post here often, as I do on yahoo Q&A. An old quote, "Neccesity is the Mother of Invention" fits exactly what you're talking about. For millions who haven't "schooled" in trades that require the peripherals, WE still need to FIX STUFF,and there's no sin at all in improvising, when it works. Good Post, thanks. I look forward to 'hangin out" here. Steven Wolf

I usually repair most things myself. If I can not do it for some reason, I let the hubby do it.

There is hardly any such repairable works at home. Anything to do electrical, we call electrician and any plumbing, call plumbers. Regarding minor repairs, my wife does it.
