More Repair Culture

Kenyan Ironworks (Via Boing Boing)

...interesting to me (probably because it moved and did stuff with fire), was the bicycle-turned-to-bellows that kept the fire going that would heat the metal rods. It’s a fairly simple, yet ingenious contraption that utilizes old materials with a little bit of engineering. The thing runs all day, every day too, so it’s made to last.
Great example of ingenuity in an environment where re-use and repair is king.
