Coming in 2016: Monthly San Diego Fixit Clinics

Fixit Clinic CXXXII (132) - San Francisco

Saturday Steve, Andrea, and I carpooled over to San Francisco to staff Fixit Clinic CXXXII (132) at the Richmond District Neighborhood Center. We held a Fixit Clinic here in April 2013 so we were familiar with the location; this time we were joined by the Bay Area Bike Mobile crew who set up their tools and bike stands and provided much appreciated bicycle repairs.

Among the things we saw beyond bicycles were a Vornado space heater, a Canon printer, a humidifier, a couple of boomboxes, etc. And we taught this person how to solder a new jack onto her headphones:
