Wipers and shades

The gust of wind from an opposing large truck on a 2 lane road in the rain and our driver side windshield wiper was twisted loose.  It actually stripped the splines on the wiper shaft, making re-mounting it impossible.  Since a new wiper arm is hard to get, especially in the middle of New Mexico, I drilled and tapped opposing holes in the wiper arm hub and used two set screws to keep the arm in place.  Works fine now, may not even need a new arm!

Entegras have a reputation for poor shade motors, and our night shade motor showed why.  It won’t come back up anymore, just hums.  Guess I’ll just use some Velcro to keep the shade up until I can get a new motor.
