Electrical Equipment Repairs

Several examples of older electrical equipment and devices which have been saved from destruction by repairing them.

A few modern items are repaired, mainly where the repair is simple and quick to do. Unfortunately, much modern equipment is economically unrepairable as it is cheaper to simply buy another one.

IMPORTANT: Although these videos show the repair and refurbishment in some detail, they are NOT 'how to' videos as a fair amount of the process has been left out or abbreviated.
