Not surprised last Saturday, we had a repair café combined with Mens Shed garage sale. I am with the Mens shed & ended up working with the Café lot as a battery non charger turned up (Open primary) but the fun one was, the enquiry on a wind up gramophone.

This one I am going to win, as there was no one with the mechanical skills to even contemplate fixing it? I grew up with one of them & it got the mechanism removed often, for oiling well before I left primary school. My Dad joke, based on what I am confident is the issue, was to leave it until September as it's the spring season.

The spring may not be broken but if one does not oil them appropriately, they bind & then break.
