Re: What have you fixed lately?

Cassette deck is now fully functional and re-cased. The slight kink in the belt that drives the capstan seems to have straightened out and is not affecting playback.

I needed to exercise some of the switches to get them working right.

Re: What have you fixed lately?

4 way extension lead: The red warning neon had failed. They eventually do if left on continuously.

I have a small LED circuit using a capacitor dropper that replaces the neon and fits inside the box of the lead. A few minutes rummage in the bitsa* box for some parts and run one up. In this case using a couple of red T3 LEDs.

Nicely fixed.

*Bits of this and bits of that.

If you are smashing an electronic scale then it will likely be knackered now and way out of calibration, so useless for weighing things accurately.

Maybe the battery contacts need a proper clean, failing that just buy a new one.

Yes you have a good point mate!!

I last fixed a cassette I got..... The pad fell off (I bought it with the pad off) so i took some super glue and secured her in place (Most cassettes and 8 tracks do not sound good if the pads arent there)

Fixed a door knob and improved the radio reception on the car with a bit of wire brushing and vaseline.
