    Is mike taking in repairs from new customers? Iv got an old president McKinley I would like to send him, iv spent over 100 dollars just trying to get a factory alignment done to it... there are a lot of bad techs/ hacks out there. I sent it of to a YouTube tech.... once he received it back in early March he made up a bunch of bs saying it had no receive etc... then informed me over the phone that it was tax season... and was trying to get peoples tax refund money lol.

    Ok making some progress I got the walls in the new shop all repaired, painted and got at least one wall finished this weekend. Now the next wall will have about 30 parts cabinets or more and of course a ton of equipment to get set up and calibrated. I got the updates for my Rigol equipment over the weekend so the Spectrum analyzer and scope are up to date.

    That $25.00 is most probably a bench fee. The actual repair would be additional labor and parts with a huge markup.
