Before starting repairs at Field Brighton, the team enjoyed a meal together provided by The Old Tree Café. The food was incredible!

Mattia fixed the transformer on Alexis’ electric toy car

A beautiful old folding chair, broken and sitting by the fridge for a year was brought back to life by Ali and Alexis. Slats of the seat and back had broken.

Alexis and his Mum and Dad went to the Wood Store around the corner. They sourced the perfect strip of wood to make the new slates from.

At the Bevy in the morning:

Alan took apart and examined an old record player brought in by Ally. To get it working he cleaned it up and changed the fuse.

Ali created an improvised lathe by upturning an electric drill and placing it in a vice.

With the lathe he made a new spike for a mace from Poland!

Alan fixed a strimmer by undoing a seized up screw that held in the strimmer wire. He placed it in a vice to loosen it.

A little fairy with a broken wing found her way to the Bevy. Michael fixed it using some wire and she happily flew away.

Ernesto’s heater smelled funny when on. Mattia opened it up and gave it a thorough clean and voila, no more funny smells.

Liam, who was working with the band playing at the Bevy on the day, brought a faulty amp. A fuse was blown and Mattia showed and helped him to replace them. It did the job.

March repairs at the Bevy…

Jane brought in her shredder as it was no longer shredding garden debris efficiently.

IMG_1197

Alan and Mattia investigated the shredder to find that the motor was still working but that the blades had rusted up and corroded.

IMG_1198

The blades could have been turned around to use the alternate side but the bolts were too rusty to change them.

IMG_1258

Alan replaced the fuse and bulb on the lamp that Hazel brought in.

IMG_1191

He fixed it in a matter of minutes to Hazel’s delight and appreciation.

IMG_1178

Shirley helped Lee sew the hem on her curtains.

IMG_1247

Mischa brought in an internet cable that Ziggy her rat had bitten through!

IMG_1263

To repair it Mattia, rejoined the wires with solder and covered the join with heat shrink tubing.

IMG_1276

Mischa shows off the end result!

IMG_2443

Victoria replaced the metal buttons she didn’t like on her vintage Aran cardigan with some secondhand wooden buttons she had found in a charity shop.

IMG_1281

The damaged lead of a hair dryer was inspected by Alan.

IMG_2415

The damage on the wire was very close to the casing. So Alan took the  mold apart, neatly soldered the wires together, covered the join with heat shrink tubing and concealed the repair in the body of the hairdryer.

IMG_2424

IMG_2431

IMG_1280

A well loved Nutribullet had stopped working through a build up of liquid that had seeped between the casing.  Mattia carefully took the processor apart, cleaned it, then meticulously put it back together.

IMG_2423

The newly functioning processor, resulted in one happy healthy customer, who had cycled all the way from Hove to the repair cafe!
