Haven’t been on in a while, it’s been busy at my house.
I’ve since picked up a fixed a few pins.
The game changer happened when I inherited a non-functioning 70s Wurlitzer Juke. Talk about a whole new level of complexity! I brought it back to life and absolutely loved every minute working on it. I was able to figure the whole thing out without a service manual. (i did end up getting one so I could get part #s).
All that said, I was looking around the net for more projects and found a whole bunch of wanted ads looking for a juke repair man. Well holy jeeze, a lightbulb went off in my head- I could start a small side business! Hell, I know these Wurlitzer jukes like the back of my hand. I reached out to and got replies from the 3 enthusiastic posters. Well, 1 of the three thought I’d come over to their house and fix it for free LOL. The other 2 got upset when I gave a price point of 40.00 per hour. Is that not fair? The average I saw was like 78.00 per hour, and that’s u-haul to the shop! It’s no wonder these old jukes end up rotting away in sheds.
This is probably the most common and oldest story in the world, but my ambition to start a little side business is pretty much null and void.
Anyway, cheers all!!
