My Spinner 360's Last Spin, or Not

2012-11-21 4

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…

Photos of the accident

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.

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.

Ready Spinner!

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!!!
