Services

Below is only a partial indication of the range of services I can offer. Please contact me regarding any repair, no matter how unusual. I'll also tell you straight-up if a job is out of my skillset. Estimates are free and in the rare event that a repair attempt is fruitless (and that usually only happens with electronics when the needed parts are made of unobtanium), there will be no charge.

My general shop labour rate is $50/hr but most work will be charged according to a firm, agreed-upon estimate. My customers tell me I'm very reasonable.
