Rocco replaces the caster wheels on Jane's garbage can. He also diagnoses two dead power tool batteries.

Andre creates a strategy plan for restoring the bench stool, and it needs a hacksaw or a crowbar! Rocco spritzes contact cleaner on Seth's Akai reel-to-reel player. He and Zach use pliers to tighten the blade assembly on the blender.

Rocco restores the AM antenna on the Sony radio. The JBL speaker had enough glue on the connector to force us to step back and figure out how to disconnect the power. D45

Charlie and Joe rewire Daphne's floor lamp (mogul base) with an inline switch. Rich diagnoses Greg's Panasonic CD Player and hopes one little transistor will revive the Bose Wave Radio. Joe replaces Renée's compromised plug on the table lamp. The full-size (music) keyboard generates no speaker sound. The headphones get some soldering work.

We tell people to bring anything they can carry in by hand, saying "not the car, but the car part". Phil gave us our first car part to diagnose. Phil couldn't even buy a new Neutral Safety Swtich through an authorized BMW dealership - only refurbished switches are available. Joe and Emily rewire it and hope for the best.

We're grateful and happy to have Ugo from London's Restart Project pay us a visit! D30
