Default Re: 'Mend it Mark' YouTube Channel

I emailed Mark to compliment him on his videos, and sent him a link to this thread.

He replied to say:

Quote:

Thanks for doing that! Itís really nice to read the positive comments, Iím very flatteredÖ

I also had a request from another forum member, after he read your thread. He asked if I can show off some of the test gear, which I think I will soon.

My next video is a repair of a 1980ís Digital Delay Module, hopefully I can edit it in time for release on Friday!

Unquote.

So much stuff on YouTube is by dabblers with 'delusions of adequacy' or waffly academics who have the technical skills, but lack the practical skills. It's a breath of fresh are to come across a professionally qualified, experienced and versatile guy such as Mark.

'All the gear and the right idea!'

I loved watching Mark and fell about laughing when he comment (it took longer than Phillip Scoffield to come) out when removing a module
Good practical work

I thought that I had a lot of test gear, but that is mind-blowing.
I wouldn't want his electricity bill!
