Fix-it Clinic Number Two on November 9th

Our second Fix-it Clinic is coming up this Sunday, November 9th. Come to Duluth Tech Co any time between 10am and 5pm with your broken items, and our volunteers will have a crack at them. This is a walk-in event so feel free to come any time.

Not sure what you can bring? Last time, our items included a flat screen TV, the motor from a food dehydrator, a small 3D printer, an old boom box, and a trash can with a broken foot pedal. We’re up for anything, and we hope that if we can’t fix it that day, we can at least diagnose it or point you in the right direction for a part. We have computers connected to the internet so we can look up parts and tutorials for all kinds of things.

Like last time, we’ll have a 3D printer demonstration, a custom arcade cabinet where you can play all your favorite NES games, and coffee and tea. This time, we’ll also have a photo booth to play with while you wait, thanks to our office mate, Max Caven Photography.

Take a look at these photos from the last fix-it clinic.
