My Spinner 360's Last Spin, or Not

As the manual said, you have to be really careful with any falls, but is it possible to fix this?

In January I had knee surgery. I had a very long recovery and in the meanwhile, I had to wear a horrible splint with the summer’s heat, I had to lie down all day long, I had to go to the kinesiologist 3 times a week, and I had to use crutches for some months.

This last detail caused a big accident…

My repaired Spinner

I don’t remember on what specific day happened, but I was very late to go to the kinesiologist. So I quickly took my purse out of my wardrobe, but with such bad luck that the strap moved one of my crutches and it pushed my little Spinner to the floor…

I thought sadly that I would lose my Spinner forever, but then I thought… I have fixed so many things, so this one will not be the exception!

I required the following things:

  • Glue
  • A screwdriver
  • Rubber bands
  • The broken Spinner

First: I lined up the box with the handle of the Spinner and I fixed it with many rubber bands to take the last photos of the roll.

Photo of the fall and the first one I took with the rubber bands

Second: I unscrewed all the screws to remove the pieces of the handle that remained stuck to them.

Third: I glued these pieces to the handle and screwed again. I waited some days and I tried again.

Fourth: I waited nervously if the photos would come out or if I would definitely lose it.

I think its now as good as new!!!
