    Hallo
    When we were in Malmรถ, we also visited the library and they have a special room there with the right tools and 1 or 2 volunteers from the craft and electronics sectors. There, however, everyone could repair or have their toaster, radio or whatever else from the house repaired with the help of the experts. FOR FREE. I thought that was really great.

    Roy, now that you mention this restoration subject I remember a tv show here in the US called โ€œAmerican restorationโ€.
    To me it was awesome to see very old pinball and other stuff.

    Not sure if there is an equivalent TV programme in the USA but here many of us follow the Repair Shop. The public bring in family objects that need repair, they then share the associated memories and we get to see various ways of restoring things from broken china to leatherwork and mechanical toys.

    In 1993 I answered a local newspaper advert asking for someone to restore a small yacht made during WW2 by the lads grandfather. His dad was paying and I went to see them both and took on a small yacht which a small boy had tortured to death!

    I asked what they were expecting? They would like to sail her again. I gave the dad a price which he agreed to and took the yacht home.
    I had to de-construct the hull and re-build her, new mast and then make some sails.

    She came out quite good. I thought about what is now called the reveal. So i constructed a cover and took it all over to them. Then when they were ready, off came the cover and they were gob-smacked! So I know the feeling which the repair shop guys enjoy, it is very satisfying. I believe it became a centre piece on the sideboard!

    The trouble is you can't make a living doing it, you would starve. This was before we all had digital cameras but the photos are somewhere.

    In the UK we had a notorious pair named Burke and Hare. They were the first resurrectionists, but they used to dig up the newly buried and sell the bodies to Medical schools.

    I am pleased to know that you are feeling better now that you have "vented your spleen" Roy.
    Now you can look forward to another wet weekend out with your model boat.๐Ÿ‘
    Stay safe,

    Stand easy V.Adm. Bill.
    You will not be court-martialled.
    Captain Roy however will have a Serious Reprimand placed on his permanent service record, which may come back to haunt him when the next Promotion Review Board sits.

    Sorry all. It was not in the modellers bit though, and I got into a bit of a rant! Well, I feel a bit better and sorry if anyone was upset.
    A bit like playing Bridge above the line and below.

    Resurrectionists Unite!

    Regards
    Roy
