much much less than any one else. less than a Mc Burger meal deal..
send him a PM letting him know numbers and types of microscopes you have and he will let you know what he will charge.
Our senior ones did not take very long, they were in good shape, so he raced through those. The junior ones were very bad, so that took most of his time. I set him up in a small prep room and took the microscopes to him on trolleys - and he pottered away head down working on them, only being dug out for morning tea lunch and going home time.As we have over 90 microscopes it took a few days.

Yes! But pension mob won't let me charge ,so would look at it, and see if it can be repaired.
If the coil is burnt out you would have to buy a new one. Either phone me or email me

Hi Guys, any suggestions for equipment repairs? As most of my things like microscopes and power packs are from Serrata I usually get them to repair anything that gets broken, located NSW Central Coast MariaQ

Hi,
I would love to have someone come and repair some of our aging equipment and perhaps teach me some tips at the same time..Ocker are you still in the business and would you come to Northern Rivers and service a few different schools?
