Hello from me, Chas Large.
I retired five years ago but still keep my hand in with local fixes of "stuff". A long career from Installation Assistant (Van Boy) with Radio Rentals, through to Training Officer for Mastercare and SHARP. Transitioning from Valves through chips and ending with board replacements.
I love to tinker and revisiting the "Good old days" fixing stuff I last saw on the bench as a teenager.
Hope to keep going as long as I can. Thanks for letting me join.
A very warm welcome to you, and very pleased you decided to join our happy band of tinkerers. Plenty of ex trade folk here, so you'll find many a kindred spirit. I've been bingeing on some of your videos over the past couple of days. You have a very relaxing style, keep up the great work.
Thanks for submitting your trade tale, it is now published. 👍
If you've not looked at the main website yet, you may not have discovered the Brochure section, among many other interesting things to distract you.

Welcome aboard Chas!
Hi and welcome Chas. Wonder if you were at Sharp during the LCD era, I attended a course in Manchester on the P50 models with the 576p display. Think Sharp was the only manufacturers that would supply parts for LCD panels rather than swapping out the whole unit.
