I innovate so often in my home repairs that none of it is notable. I recall talking to the deacon of a local church here when we were helping him repair the home of one of his flock, and he told me that when he was a kid, they did not have door hinges...he would repair them with straps of leather. One thing I've done is on under cabinet lights I have. They take these 2 pronged bulbs: The problem is that the sockets are cheap poop and the prongs don't make very good contact...the bulb kinda sags and flickers. I've wrapped aluminum foil around the prongs to fatten them up, but it does not work very well. So I fatten them up with solder. I just can't find a puck light that I think is worth the trouble of swapping them out with, so for the time being, I get out the solder gun.
