There's a "macgyver" thread or two here, but that suggests some level of cunning and professionalism. So how about some of your best 'ghetto' repairs (or 'redneck' if you're uncomfortable with that). Noticed this one the other day http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=54047 Some funny crap in there. I love this stuff but ironically I have little of my own to offer. I'm that irritating bastard that just HAS to take four hours out of my day and drive sixty miles out of my way to get the RIGHT g'd'amn part. Not proud of that really.
