Repair Stuff Answered

Could Instructables perhaps include the category of REPAIRS. It just occurred to me when saw His Highness, E.W. post the repair of his power saw that there is no place really for this topic. I routinely replace the power cords on all my power tools on purchase with a 5M cable. (the factory cables are always too short and sometimes the plug is just downright weird). Lately I have replaced the bearings in my planer (with 100% success). However I seriously battled with the removal of one of them and did need advice. As a farmer I am constantly repairing stuff and am currently busy vivesecting my old drill and need advice on how to check the various parts for continuity, since smoke came out of it! but don't have a clue where to post though except in offbeat.

I suspect this is why we have the tagging system- the categories are broad areas to classify Instructables, but if you want to make your own then you can just tag your Instructable accordingly, and maybe make a group for people to post similarly tagged Instructables. 

I suspect if enough people picked it up then it would become an official category (as I suspect happened with K'nex, though I wasn't watching)- why not tag your own Instructables and create a group to invite people/'Ibles to?

Repair could be a good one, I'm thinking as a second category. E.g. I repaired my music player, I repaired my ride.

VERY Good idea! This could be even broken down into diff areas of repair like tools, auto's, home, computer, and many more sub categories. I really think this could help a lot of people.
