Ya beat me to it. I second the motion wholeheartedly. The only time I even attempt it is if I am dealing with something that is essentially irreplaceable and then caution the user NOT to beat them.

Mort, most of what you are working on is dirt cheap to replace. No need to try to sort of fix something that will cost you more in time to accomplish than the item is worth new. The fact that the item is no where near as strong as it was new just adds insult to injury.
