Help us to spread the word that repair cafes are essential to reduce waste
I took some stuff to the recycling centre today and had a peek in the “small electricals” skip. Repair cafes help to reduce this! We had an electric mower in on Saturday, it was intermittent. I found a break in the neutral wire of the cable near the switch. The insulation was intact so it was impossible to see fault without testing. I cut off the offending bit of cable, reconnected and it worked. I stood looking at the Bosch mower in the skip and wondering if it could have been repaired.
This is the piece of cable that was replaced.
We would love to hear from anyone interested in joining our team of repairers; if you can do any one or more of the following: garment repairs, electrical repairs, electronics, mobile phones, mechanical repairs, bikes. For more information please contact:
