Cost saving on parts

I have a Flymo garden vac which uses shredding sticks to break up leaves etc. Instead of paying anywhere between £7 for 5 sticks to £22 plus for 30 I am now using a 2.4mm strimmer line cut to length and knotted in the centre. The knot is put in then heated with hot water to tighten.The machine runs as smoothly as using the sticks with no vibration at all and the line does not wear out fast or break if it hits something a bit harder and a small pack will last a long time at a much lower cost.
