Fixit Clinic CCXLV (245) San Francisco-Noisebridge

Held in conjunction with Noisebridge's Circuit Hacking Mondays, this was a rare weekday evening Fixit Clinic. There were a surprising number of young people present. 


Among the treats at Noisebridge is a stereo microscope hooked up to a large display so everyone could watch the fine soldering work in action:




Fixit Coach Scotty Allen worked diligently with these young people and the stereo microscope to figure out a bad Bose iPod dock. (Scotty's famous for his iPhone hacks: see https://strangeparts.com/how-i-made-my-own-iphone-in-china/)


This air compressor gave us all sorts of problems and we blew out a voltage regulator trying to fix it.


This mixer had decades-old batter hardened in the slots for the beater blades -- fixed!


These ravenous, enterprising, and opportunistic diners used a heat gun to defrost their burritos.
