Was gonna trim my beard yesterday but the clippers were broke. Wouldn't turn on.

Ordered a replacement resolving to do the job after work today instead.

Replacement arrived so I put the old broken ones into the e-waste pile.

But they fell. Smashing onto the floor, and successfully turning themselves on again.

Should have tried smashing them into the floor yesterday I suppose. That seems to have fixed it.

So now I have two sets of clippers.

A backup is always good I suppose. If I had a backup I could have trimmed my beard yesterday,

@pre opening them up and resoldering the loose connection would be better than smashing it until it breaks loose and trips a breaker

@pleb But my smashing-into-the-floor skills are way more practiced and trained than my soldering skills.
