My wife is fond of DIY. Anytime I ask her to do anything that's what she tells me........do it yourself tongue.gif

Ash, I've always been a DIY kind of guy but the trouble now is that with anything I do I have to consider that the now inherant dificulty that faces me with anything I do myself is that I can't see exactly that which I'm staring at.
This means I have to go by feel when trying to put a screwdriver onto the head of a screw; after I've struggled to place the screw into the hole in the first place.
To comabat this I use a magnifying glass and a small LED lamp (the kind you might see on people's nappers at night when the're out with their dogs but which I carried in my hand because they attract moths etc at night right in front of your eyes rolleyes.gif )
With that and a srewdriver and a screw to fix, I need four hands.
Three weeks ago I replaced the bottom rotor arm on our dishwasher and earlier this week I took delivery of the detergent dispenser for the same machine.
Straight onto YouTube whichg is every DIY guy's little helper (always providing you have a serviceable mouse at hand tongue.gif ) and there it was, nae bother ataw ... except that my old model had more screws to remove and replace than the ones shown.
Still, job done ... and I have one screw left over unsure.gif
Fortuneatly, before I stripped it all down again: removing the outer and inner panels which seemed to have more screws than than an aircraft wing, I realised that the screw which I had in my hand was from an item on the old dispenser which I wanted a closer look at.

Saved me 500+ on a new dishwasher which the Boss Lady thought was a better idea even when the replacement parts had cost me 87 for both together.

Trouble is that the Boss Lady thinks that she can now spend the money saved on something she might like; like new boots, coat and Accessoires laugh.gif

I'm a bit the same with repairs although you are talking to our dishwasher laugh.gif My problem (apart from lack of talent) is painful joints in my hands, if you know anybody who can get the lid off a jar of pickled beetroot, would you send them round rolleyes.gif I tried all the usual things, rubber gloves, boiling water (sounds like I'm delivering a wean laugh.gif ) but it just won't shift.

I also have a glue for every occasion and can tell you this, superglue is not as super as it used to be yes.gif

Problem solved, Ash (get one on Amazon)

What I have is a stainless stell plate bent up on two sides at half an inch (12mm) which, being a DIY guy I did myself and with two screws fixed under a shelf above your kitchen sink it's in the ideal position.
My trouble with my hands is that at the wrong moment my fingers, which have been broken more times than enuff, go into a painful cramp twisting towards my wrist and causing me to drop things which I try, usually unsuccessfully, to catch between my knees before hiting the floor, which doesn't do glassware any good rolleyes.gif .
As for superglue, I have three great 5 or 6 mm mountains of it right beneath my desk here where I tried to repiar that rotor arm mentioned above but didn't see that I was missing it by a mile so if anyone knows how to get big lumps of hardened superglue of my laminate floor without tearing the top layer off, let me know tongue.gif

I`m the same with jars ,I used to stick it in the hinge end of the pantry door,opn the door,sometimes it worked,but I noticed the door was looking a bit worse for the wear,and jars in the sink with hot water,then one day I was telling a visitor of my problem and she posted me 2 gadgets. one for the rim of the jar,I hear the air pop,and voila !.the other is a long thing that opens that annoying ring pull on the can. My husband says ,every time sad.gif,the worst invention ever ,when I take a can out to use,and the biggest percentage have them too. progress from the old can opener.some hopes.
so sad to hear of your eyesight problems Tee,we take our eyes and everything else we get at birth for granted,and we only get a lend of it,it`s not meant to last us to the end.I got my cataracts done at 79, 20 20 vision now,which I would have loved for the previous 40 years or so.
