The Old Lady has a favorite peeler. It's so old it was made in West Germany. She's had the thing for 30+ years and this morning it broke.
These pictures show what happened to the peeler. The blade popped off.
Another view of the blade off the peeler.
I drilled out what was holding the blade on and used pull-thru rivets to reattach the blade. I had thought of using solid rivets, but after looking at how worn it is (was afraid it would break and be unusable), decided to go with the pull-thru rivets. It should last for a little while longer, but I'm afraid the next time it breaks, I won't be able to fix it as it is wearing out. Now for sure she has to find a replacement. The problem is they don't make these peelers anymore. As recently as a year or two ago she had found similar peelers made by the same company, but when she checked today, she couldn't find any.
