Robot repairs

Haven't posted in a while, the usual problem of not knowing what to write.I had to do some real dad-work for a change, repair a misbehaving robot... the robot in question being at least 40 years old, I got it as a hand-me-down as a little boy over 30 years ago, and it was old then. The switch to make it go works by sticking the antenna into the head all the way down, connecting two copper bands - but the plastic bit between the two bands had broken in two. I managed to get the head open, glue the holder together again (1960s plastic - yeah!) and get the metal and plastic head together again, ready to be celebrated by my son as his hero. But then again - making toys work again is what being a dad is about
