This is the book you must read before you read any other 'how-to' guide to repairing cars, household appliances, garden machines, and farm equipment, or doing home improvements.  It is a resource for smart people who have never had the opportunity to learn the basics of tool use, maintenance and repairs. It contains useful information not found in any other publication, and is the first new book in many years on this subject. Written by the third generation, in a family of self reliant do-it-yourself people, many of these 150 Tips and Tricks come to you from a time when we repaired our possessions, rather than throwing them away.

For the complete beginner, and the more experienced home repairer, it contains 185 crisp black and white photo illustrations, direct, and simple explanations, and easy to follow directions, for doing repairs, and making things last longer. The information presented in this book will give you the courage, and information, to tackle simple and complex repairs.In this book, find out HOW TO:
  • Get your car to start.
  • Sharpen scissors, blender blades, pruning shears, lawn mower blades.
  • Start that lawnmower
  • Make new threads.
  • Get your copier to work better.
  • Hold a screwdriver, hammer or pliers.
  • Fix things with random parts.
  • Persuade your car's engine to last longer.
  • Make fittings leak proof.
  • Tighten and loosen things, without damaging the machine.
  • Repair household lamps and appliances.
  • Buy the right nuts and bolts.And much more.
A must-have for any aspiring Kiwi DIY'er
