Cool Hi from New Jersey

Hi everyone,
It's nice to see that this forum is here.
I've been repairing electronic equipment for about 25 years and now i'm thinking of building some equipment for my own use.
I figure it's a hobby that would keep my troubleshooting skills sharp.
I'll be building all the usual stuff, tube preamps and amps, because to me thay sound better than 90% of the crap you can get at any of the stores.
I have my house full of equipment, manuals, and parts and i've picked up a few tricks over the years, so i'll be trying to answer a few posts as well as ask some insanely stupid questions.

And if i get carried away or go on a rant, Please feel free to hit me in the head with a hammer I will realize the error of my ways and behave myself.

Thanks to all
joe

Hi Joe, welcome!!

25 years repairing stuff for other and nothing made for your self.
Time to start working on that and this place is a perfect start.
What do you repair?

Hi Hugo,
I've been repairing consumer electronics. TV's, CD's,DVD Players, all types of audio/video equipment.

Ran my own shop for a few years.. Big mistake not buying the building. When lease renewal came they jacked the rent up so high i had to move/close, which was a good thing, I went to work for one of the companies that had a repair contract with me at the time. I got the same pay i was used to and none of the standard headaches, like taxes and payroll. Been there ever since.

I've got a lot of equipment scattered through out the house and have always tinkered with stuff. But never really built from scratch. I have a few ideas of what i would like to build and have been searching the net looking at a lot of schematics when i landed here.
Seems like a really cool place to exchange ideas and get feedback without running into too much snake oil and magic boxes.

So i'm gonna search a few forums because the questions i have most likely have already been answered and if they haven't you'll be seeing me post a few.


joe
