Our pal Quinn Dunki sent us this fix she made to her rope-start salad spinner. The nylon cord on it broke. Rather than toss it away, she used it as an opportunity to learn more about the mechanism that powers the device, and experimented with different replacement cord. Eventually, she ended up with a 550lb-test paracord. Yeah. That oughta hold. Better than new.

I love these sorts of humble repair n’ document projects. May a million of them bloom. Send us yours!
