This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

Train
My parents recently found my 30+ year old train set in the loft and I took it home. The train didn't work so without much hope I took it to bits to see if anything was obviously wrong. Of course as soon as I opened it all the bits fell out. So I put them together as well as I could and replaced a broken v-shaped springy bit with a paper clip and fuck me it worked.

However, having just admitted I played with a train set at the age of 37 I'll get my coat.

Nothing wrong with it, mate.
It's all good.

Well done on bringing the age down.
I'd love a train set but don't feel old enough to start one yet.
That said, the only people who don't appreciate train sets are too young or too stupid to appreciate much.
