It is time to look through your junk drawers and rooms, and find items to reuse or repair!

Projects must incorporate some kind of used materials - either take that old used thing, and turn it into something new and different or repair it and make it like new!

There is a Judges' Prize for the best project that incorporates Fusion 360.

*Be smart and be safe. Potentially harmful projects (like Lichtenberg/fractal wood burning machines) will not be allowed to be published or submitted to this contest.

Only   left to enter the Repair and Reuse Contest!
