I am a gaffer and lighting director working in film and video. Our company is a truck-toolbox carrying lights and grip equipment. We repair our gear when possible. I delight in repairing and maintaining old motorcycles and a '96 Saab convertible that has become reliable and fun transportation. The adventure, risk of failure in the attempts to fix what is broken is well worth the trouble. If it's broken anyway, all that is lost is some time.
