    Nice work - you seem to fix a hell of a lot of boards, is it a hobby for you or a business?

      It's both - I really love fixing boards, it gives me a lot of satisfaction and I love knowing that I've resurrected something which will give others a lot of pleasure.

      It started off simply as a hobby, but when I was made redundant from my job a few years ago I found that I could just about scratch out a living by repairing boards. Times are tough though and while I still do it as a hobby and to earn some money, it's barely paying it's way. But I'll continue for as long as I can ...........
