Episode 6
Series 5 (Extended Versions) Episode 6 of 20

Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

Janette Drew and her mother Margaret Murphy are hoping that metal work expert Dominic Chinea can save a beloved bench that is on its last legs. This humble garden seat is a reminder of where Margaret first met her husband in his mother’s garden, and later on in its life it was the bench Jeanette’s market gardener father took his tea breaks on.

Donald Creasy, his daughter Becky and his grandsons Sam and Joe are hoping Steve Fletcher’s mechanical expertise might solve a tricky problem. They have brought in a Triumphator calculator, a descendant of the revolutionary adding machines of the 1900s, which was used by Donald when he worked in a laboratory over 55 years ago. It is now completely jammed up and hasn’t performed a calculation in decades. At first, Steve is stumped by the mechanical calculator, but things finally begin to add up.

A unique piece of family heritage arrives with Ella Woolls and her father Jon. It’s an antique bridal in need of some serious TLC, and master saddler Suzie Fletcher is just the person for the job. The bridle was made by Ella’s great-grandfather, and Ella hopes Susie will be able to bring it back to its former glory so it can survive for future generations.

Next to roll into the barn is a toy that has been delighting generations of children for over 80 years. Owner Brian Adams is hoping bike restorer Tim Gunn can work his magic on a rusty pedal scooter that Brian inherited from his father. In the 1930s, the scooter was Brian’s father’s prized possession – he even took it with him when his family were evacuated during the war. The scooter was then passed down to Brian and his sister, who recall spending many happy hours zooming around on the two-wheeled wonder. Sadly, the scooter has sat unused in the shed for many years, but now Brian’s granddaughter Freya has her eye on it, and he needs the teams help to bring it back to its former glory.
