I'm a Sea container repairer by trade, residing in Australia. Disbeleiver in the "continuous population growth/consumer driven economy " model that's been fed to me as the answer. That's not to say I don't want my HTC phone, I just don't think I should be throwing it away just because the new ones out. Re-home, Repair...then Recycle. My most notable "by the book" repair is rebuilding and camming my Chevy L76 6.0l v8 after oil pump failure. The work I'd like to undertake most would be to put the heart and running gear of my 2005 car, when the body dies, into a 1970 car that should never die. Making it more practical in modern times so it can be further used and enjoyed.
