Fixing a home appliance yourself actually feels good.
I’m quite used to fixing home appliances in front of the camera for the eSpares how-to videos. It’s a completely different kind of working day from the usual meetings and sitting at my desk. I really enjoy taking appliances apart and discovering (usually) how easy it is to fit spare parts and get them working again. Fixing it in front of the camera and thinking about how we can make the process as clear as possible for the viewer is sometimes challenging, but it’s incredibly rewarding too; particularly when we get customer comments through the eSpares site or through YouTube. Most viewers really appreciate the effort that we’ve gone to in helping them fix their appliance.Read more

Okay, you’ve lost your TV remote. Well, maybe it wasn’t you who did it, it was the kids. Perhaps technically it can’t be considered lost lost because the kids decided that it was much better used as a hammer or as buried treasure. Basically these scenarios are leading down a winding path where you’ve now got a fully functioning television but no remote control. Does this sound familiar?

Sugru is a really cool new product that I’ve been boring my colleagues about for a couple of months now. It’s a silcone moulding clay/glue that you can shape to fit more or less anything. It sticks to most things, cures overnight and is flexible, durable and heat resistant. It’s one of those things that you can’t quite believe hadn’t already been invented.
