In a "throw away when broken consumer world" what to repair?
But I guess it depends what kinda repair job? I work on vintage
tube musical amps for a hobby not to make money. It keeps my brain
working and keeps me busy. When repaired and made it sound like
what the owner(player) wanted, his smile of satisfaction makes my day.
Of course my time and labor is free. Only needed material cost is
charged. Wife is telling me, I shouldn't do this 'cause I rob repair
shop's business,LOL! I do same with computers, appliances,etc. for my
I recommend these....
I doubt you are taking business away from a shop. They get their
business from people who need something done right away. Those shops
want to get something in and out quickly, don't want to fool around with
Hope you are training a younger person, in the
art. Not many vac tube guys left. I've got a
couple dozen I harvested over the years. And
used to own a vac tube tester, which got lost
years ago to unfortunate situation.
