I have a similar 'failing' - spend more time building test equipment than actually repairing faulty stuff :lol:

Mind you, I've now started a local no-fix, no-fee service (fixed price of £20) for ANY electronic repair and I'm starting to get a snowball effect! Spoilng my 'messing around in the workshop' time :roll: :lol:

Hi,

What a good idea k_e in having a fixed price for electronic repairs; does this exclude components? :salute:

Once my workshop is to my liking I'd love to make a solid oak dresser base just for the heck of it; Bron and I have just seen a couple of these dresser bases at Wentworth Garden Centre; furniture making is so rewarding not only in the huge monetary savings but in the sheer pleasure of making something that can be used; over the years I've made lots of fitted and free standing furniture which would have cost a fortune to buy retail; strangely though second hand furniture commands very low prices even good quality solid oak items; its terrible to see this lovely oak furniture be daubed with paint which is currently the in thing; in a few years no doubt this will go out of fashion then the paint will be stripped; MDF is OK for painting but solid oak?

A few years ago I tried unsuccessfully to sell a waterfall bookcase together with dozens of electronic/vintage radio books only asking £50 for the lot; in the end Oxfam received them; the timber I used in the bookcase cost more than £50; mine was similar style to the one shown below it having double drawers with sold brass drop handles but the one below costs from £90 just for delivery.

Kind regards, Col.
