    It's a bit quiet in here.
    I'll have to find something else that's faulty

    It is getting harder to find things that are fixable in a world where everything is becoming replaceable.

    Thumbs up perhaps ?

    yep every thing is replaceable or binned why not the politicians as well thats what the libs do but back to electronics , i try to fix everything : the last bit of pleasure is bashing it to pieces and going to the bin if nothing works may be some one will tell us about something they have fixed in the real world not in cyberspace lol

    I'll have a go at just about anything. What happens is I get something that's ceased functioning then can't resist doing a forensic exam on it which often leads to repairing it so I end up with something no-one wants any longer and I have no real use for so it ends up gathering dust at my place.

    But I get a lot of enjoyment out of the success stories and the learning experience

    Like a couple of large TV's I fixed up but they were analog CRT (no digital tuner) so ultimately I had to take them to the tip although they worked as good as new - nearly broke myself moving them around.

    I can NEVER throw away any piece of tech, even a bloody fan or lamp without taking it apart to see why it failed and if I can salvage parts.
    Old printers still a good souce of mechanical bits, motors, heatsinks and some have complete power supplies with multiple volages.
    I can't count how many super powerful magnets I got from hard drives.
    I still have plenty of CRT PCB boards and yokes, while I am finally learning to part myself from old PC mobos.

    .... and all hoarded in case one day needed to FIX something, although it turns out they are more often needed to build something.
