Just a brief note to say that COVID restrictions finally fell to a level that permitted our second Repair Cafe in Jersey yesterday. We weren’t massively busy with attendees but it will was great to get back into it.
Repairs (or attempted repairs) included a kettle, toaster, steam iron, a couple of bikes, coffee machine, tape deck (remember those!?), a couple of bits of furniture and a few kids toys.
Most difficult repair was a Nespresso machine, which is the first time I’ve seen oval shaped security screws used. Thankfully we had our trusty iFixit kit (thank you @james for helping arrange this) so managed to get into it but repair proved very tricky. The most rewarding repair was a talking bear who had lost his voice, and with the aid of a few new batteries (and some cleaned up battery terminals) found his voice again. We made a little girl very happy!
