Great project video from maker and industrial engineer Eric Strebel.
If you have ever owned a cheap tool you have probably had the
same experience, one of the handles broke! You options are to remove it and
attach a vice grip, or in my case make a new one!
I fix the handle by supergluing it back together and clean it up with some
body filler and add clay to the bak side to strengthen it up a bit. Then I
cast a quick silicone mold of the fixed up part. Finally I cannibalize the
metal collar from the broken handle and insert it into the new silicone to
cast a new handle.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
