Can't tell if desperate, or just brilliant.
From the submitter:
Cheap landlady wont fix broken stove. Front panel with handle falls off everytime you pull it open, so, I FIXED IT. Doesn't stay open by itself, slams shut without weight of front panel, so you have to stand in the loop to use both hands to remove pans. Zip-ties, old potholder, and a carabiner and dog chain from the bondage drawer. :D
From the submitter: I bought this microwave oven for R$ 20 to fix it and use. Unfortunately, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find the keyboard membrane in Brazil. In USA, just the membrane costs $80!!! So I traced the keyboard circuit and made a new keyboard for it :)
