This site shares some hacks and product modifications I have made, over the last 50 years, to adapt existing products’ functionality to my personal needs, to save money, or in some cases because I could not find a product with the functionality needed .

You can also go to the “Modifications” tab and browse the categories and then the detail listings under them.
