This is an awesome community involvement idea. So many positive things can come out of this. I wish I could attend but will be out of town. I have a torchiere lamp that needs to be fixed and I cannot bring my self to send it to a landfill. Is there anyway I can drop it off somewhere on Friday or Saturday morning beofre the event? I would actually like to donate the lamp as well.
Excellent question! We are completely volunteer based and don’t have a dedicated storage space, so we are asking that anyone who wants to try and fix items bring them, help our volunteers out with trying to fix them (or at least be around to learn a thing or two in an effort to spread the fixin’ love), and return home with them whether they are repaired or not at the end of the session. We’re just as much about working together as we are about diverting waste, so we’re nixing the drop-off policy.
That said, we would love to try and help you out and very much hope you can make it to the next session on August 25th! We may eventually accept donations of items like lamps as task lighting for our future fix-ups, but again, just don’t have the space for it now. We are, however, accepting tool donations!
Thanks for the interest and enthusiasm and we’ll see you soon!
When is your next event. We’re in town from Los Angeles 9/7 – 12.

Does anyone have an idea how to repair a paper shredder? I have 2 that used to work, but have gone kaput. Thanks!
By any chance would one of your repair angels be able to fix a Ninja Blender? I ran it with a spoon inside and – I’m guessing – probably (hopefully) sheared the shear pin. Yes, I’m an idiot.
Well, we can certainly try! If it requires new parts to be purchased, we can at least have a look and tell you what those parts are once we take it apart or have a good look at it. We don’t charge, so you have nothing to lose! Hope to see you in May. -Carla
Sounds like a plan. Thank you.
Hi have artic pro portable air conditioner. Needs a new room temperature sensor. If we get can get it replaced. Both health issues so need it and can’t get any help to fix it. And where in Edgewater are you located.
Hi Edwin. We will do what we can to try and replace the part for you – that’s not something we’ve done in the past, but every repair clinic brings new challenges! Please be sure to bring the replacement part with you and I’d recommend coming on the early side in case it takes a while to install. The repair clinics take place at Edgewater Workbench, 1130 W. Thorndale Ave and runs from 4-7pm. Our next gathering will be Sunday, August 20th. We’ll see what we can do! -Carla
