*****We have a fabulous tosti-ijzer (sandwich press) that had a broken handle. They are readily available to buy new, but this one is cast iron on the inside and can be used as a weapon in case someone breaks into our house. The new ones are flimsy and wimpy so we really wanted to keep this one.
Martijn talked it over with his dad and his dad said he could make us a new handle. We figured he'd just attach a rectangle block of wood and call it good, but he went all out and made us not only one, but TWO new handles.
What sorts of things do you always find worth fixing up and keeping around?
