@Bill have you considered using a conventional "hand-operated" toothbrush?
They don't seem to ever require repair...

@JR - congratulations on seeing the sun. It's been over a week here of near-constant overcast and rain.

For my next project I'm thinking about maintaining the cast iron cookware we have for when we return to the stone age in a few weeks/months.

I've hit a new low recently. I've had to repair a $10 electric toothbrush twice in 2 weeks. First time was some corrosion on the PCB which I cleaned. A week later it had flattened the batteries again and I noticed the rubber seal at the top was not holding water at bay. As nipping to the hardware store is out I decided to go for a make and mend solution, dried and cleaned everythign and daubed in plenty of petroleum Jelly. Should hold for a few more days until I find somewhere with one in stock who can post. Oddly £250 toothbrushes that connect to your phone are plentiful, but ones that actually clean your teeth for sensible money are hard to find!
I've had good luck with braun... not as cheap as they used to be.

we haven't received normal rain fall lately, while water and silt still coming down the rain ditch from uphill.

I have a couple dozen fledgling tomato and pepper plants in my raised bed garden... They weren't getting enough water from my spray bottle, that was fine for sprouts inside the greenhouse, but out in the yard with direct sunlight they need more water.

Wouldn't that be the "iron" age? :lol:

They want to take us back to the stone age but I have to draw the line somewhere. :lol:

I converted to electric only a few years ago on advice/orders of dentist. before then I considered electric silly. My first one (braun) was flawless until the battery holder cracked, so I got the £10 special. Running costs seem about the same compared to manual brushes, plus old ones are handy for cleaning other things.

Next up to fix is a B&O remote control. I'll bet inside the nice cast metal case it's just a philips unit :D

I had to repair my braun once when after years of use, smutz got down inside gumming up the works.

I have noticed a few times the internal (nicad?) battery getting puny... When that happens I sit it on the counter and leave it running until it stops to deep discharge the battery. After that it bounces back.

I have tried using generic brush heads, but they do not work the same or as well as the stock (but more expensive) braun brush heads.
