Patron Saint of fixing things?

Hi

I am wondering if the Orthodox Church has a patron Saint for fixing things, or repairing things? I looked around on the net but could not find any information. Thanks!

Too bad Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman aren't Orthodox, or in a hundred years or so, we might have a couple of Saints of Free Software? (Unmercenaries?)

It's funny you mention Linux because I'm starting a PC business and I cannot think of a name. This is why I was wondering if there was a Patron Saint of repair.

Hmmm...a "PC" business. Does that mean computers or that you plan to try not to offend anyone, ever?

I'm not a big fan of blind "patronage". Read the lives of the saints. Get to know them. Then if a certain saint comes to mind in a certain situation based that relationship, that is one thing. Creating "a list" for people who don't know anything else about that saint is another. Just my 2 cents...
