    Glasses I can kind of understand as they can require the use of small screwdrivers to repair, the kind of which a good IT tech has in his/her tool set. Shoes though......WTF!

    Someone last week asked me to help them as they had trouble with the school direy. I imminently pictured the staff member trying and failing to open the pages and then holding the pen upside down.

    The sole was falling off.
    Plenty of UHU, a few screws and a vice and it was good enough to make a cobbler weep

    Propulsion design for a hovercraft.



    (bit of card set at an angle to the downwards facing fan that directs some of the downforce to the back of the hovercraft for forward movement ).
