So after dreading it for so long, I actually went and fixed my windup key. And it turns out dearly beloved was right it was just a loose wire that just needed to be soldered back in place.
I know I have a spare, but I really hope that it will be years before I would need to break that one out. Axeman doesn't have the motors anymore. I really don't want to go crazy trying to find the perfect speed, size and shape motor, again.
Especially after figuring out that the Aussie hair spray and conditioner bottles are the perfect size. I knew I bought spares tubes for the shafts, but I'll be dipped if I could find them. It was crazy just finding the right size and height bottles. As aussie is my preferred brand, don't have to worry about running out.
unless they change bottles....
