And don;t feel bad being a poor college student. Now is the time to do the crazy stuff you would never consider later in life.

I had an OM-1 in college. It stopped working, so I took the bottom plate off. There was a TINY piece shaped like an L that had broken, held in place by a tiny screw. I had to make a screw driver. I then cut a piece of tuna fish can lid to the size needed. Yes, a little itty bitty piece. And then drill a hole in it for the screw. All with no tools. No money.

It worked and got me through college and couple of years after that till I gave it to a family member.
