About this pro
I like taking dusty old archaic remnants of our technilogical past and making them usable again. They were never meant to sit in an attic and be forgotten about, regardless of how crude they seem now, these things come from a time when everything was built with the future in mind. They were built to last.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For items that can be repaired on site, costs start at $20.00. If I have to take the item with me, either because I don't have the tools, or because I have to order parts, repair costs will start at $45.00. These are ball park figures, the actual job could be a simple component swap or a time consuming restoration. Actual money paid could be more or less than listed here. These figures do not include parts.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Mostly I repair vintage clocks, and radios(solid state or tube), turntables, desk fans, etc.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I recently restored a panasonic clock radio with a flip card number display. Quite proud of this one as a neighbor of mine was trying to throw it away because it "didn't work". Reworked the solder joints that had corroded or Were cold in the radio and completely dismantled the clock mechanism for oiling and cleaning, and had to fill cracks in gears inside the clocks motor with epoxy to keep them from sliding out of alignment. I set the clock once and its been running happily for several weeks now.
