Nice thats the way to do it sometimes. Figure a way to keep them working. I have some stihl trimmers like your's that we wrapped duct tape around the handle because it broke and I don't feel like paying $55 for a new handle right now. By the way Mcgyver was the man in the 80's

I had a sink that used a vise grip for a knob for decades. Nice job!

I have a set of orange handled screwdrivers. I could send you one so it matches better.
