LOL, ok, try not to giggle, and I know that it isn’t the prettiest of things, but check this out…

One of the hinges of one of our toilet seats snapped (was loose, young kids move around too much on it, what are ya gonna do…), and I tossed out the broken off piece, thinking “no big deal, will just buy another one on Amazon” (this was our second seat).

Um, dang, this model and color is discontinued, and the replacements ones are $114!!

Glowforge to the rescue!!

Some calipers, some inkscape, a drill (to put a hole in the remaining part of the hinge), a piece of 1/4 inch clear acrylic and another 1/8th piece, a stainless screw, and voila!

A fully functional, repaired seat. Not that pretty, I know…we may still buy a replacement…

Hhhmmm…still not sure what we will do in the end

So, I needed a 3-inch wrench

Not broken any more

I feel a bit sheepish about this one
