The skill to fix things is a true superpower. You may not be out there fighting crime, but keeping everything running despite its best attempts to fall apart is something to cherish. So how about it? What awesome fixing tricks do you know? Share them with us in the Fix It Contest brought to you by Craftsman and 123D and you could win a MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer.

The Replicator 2 is a 3D printer that lets you make ideas real right before your eyes. You'll still need some software to design for it though and we highly recommend something from 123D or Tinkercad to get the job done. Design, print, and keep on going as new ideas come up for you.

So share your favorite fix-it tricks whether large or small, simple or high-tech. It's completely up to you. Just be sure to document it well and publish it before July 8, 2013. We can't wait to see what it is!
