Currently a student at EWU, but when not doing homework I enjoy going out to my shop and do some woodworking or get a home improvement project going.
I am not certified in any repair services but I don't like throwing away things that I think could be repaired. So I have turned into a bit of a tinkerer. I fix what I can because it saves me money and I kind of enjoy it.
I have a saying, "If someone else can do it then why can't I?" So if there is a repair shop that can fix it then I should be able to fix it too. Usually not worried about breaking it since the device is already not working so worse case is I take it in to a professional to repair it or recycle it and buy a new one. Either way not out much more money by trying to fix it myself but I could save myself quite a bit of money if I succeed.
