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.

Longest lasting bodge ever
In 1976 I moved in with my girlfriend. We didn't have a lot of money as she was fresh out of university and looking for work and my job at Pye Records wasn't that well paid.

The handle fell of a saucepan and I couldn't afford a new one until next pay day. So I cut the end off a mop handle, drilled a series of holes to form a slot. Next I mixed up some Araldite and rammed the tong of the original handle firmly in the slot.

The saucepan is still going strong today!
