Fixing Tweezers

Have your tweezers flattened out and lost their spring? Close the tweezers with a pencil placed halfway between the hinge and the points to increase the bend. Then they should grip again.

This is a great reminder that so many things can have their lives lengthened with really minor repairs/adjustments!! Try to fix things before tossing/replacing them....

Amen!!..This "disposable" enocomy is nonsense..
Gotta make more profit...
Every Quarter?.?
Its Insanity.....

I think life was much better before everything became disposable.


When things were built to last.
Things We're passed down for generations..And they still worked.
Things of use were around so long
They accrued sentimental value.
Works of artisans...
Became priceless objects dê art

We've regressed toshort lifespans of no purpose
That no meaning of any value can be attached to..

I think everything around us in our everyday life being disposable has led to this decline.

The things that are mandatory to life are free.....

The important things we can do for ourselves
Take shelter

The important things we need we can provide for ourselves
We can hunt, grow, gather
Collect, create
We can build shelters, nature provides abundant resources
We're born knowing how to
Reproduce, Learn, and grow


Everything valued today
devalues our invaluable lifes.

As a hard-core eyebrow plucker for many years, I have to tell you that "Tweezerman" tweezers are THE BEST!!!! They will grasp even the tiniest hairs, but the best part is that when they get dull you can send them to the company for free sharpening!


I also keep them sharp by rubbing the edges on a piece of emery cloth which is very fine sandpaper and that works well between professional sharpenings.
