Electrical Repair

Continuing my series on trades here’s an electrical repairman who has been in the business for 30 years. I bumped into this shop while cycling around some back streets. I was actually on my way to somewhere else, but as is the usually case, the best things are found when you are on your way to do something else.


This sight is quiet common in Kaohsiung – A trades-person busy at work amongst masses of boxes and tools. I always like to stop and have a look.

I asked about what he was repairing and he said “motors”. Judging by the fan blades hanging about the place it must be fan motors. He said had switched to motors after repairing stereo systems for years. Presumably because no one uses stereos any more.

I thanks him for the photos, introduced myself, and then carried on my way.
