Got a Question?
Here is a paypal button for $10 Quote Consultation Fee. This covers my time in phone or email communication. Speaking writing and download/upload photos takes time. I charge for my time and services. This $10 does not apply to any parts or services and is non-refundable. I find that this tends to screen out 99% of emailers/callers. The 1% of emailers/callers are my buyers. I reserve customer service and technical answers to buyers only. I reserve the right to say no thankyou or to charge more due to the complexity of the question etc. I perform repairs and or diagnostics service for -circuit boards/parts etc. BUT no repairs and no diagnostics testing services are included in this $10 Quote Consultation fee.

Dr Virago Pete's
Soldering and Desoldering Service

Lets face it - not everyone has the skills and or equipment to perform every task. Rest assured that I have all types of equipment needed perform nearly any job - no matter how delicate or tough - I'll consider it.

Sometimes people call for
1. A chip or part to be installed on a board
2. A vintage kit to be built
3. A delicate repair or upgrade
4. other

Often the buyer knows exactly which parts he/she wants replaced AND has the new part ready-to-be-installed but is fearful of making a mistake by Attempting to do it yourself.

Soldering intimidates alot of people and SMD is current technology and through-hole-component is vintage technology - both requires a different set of tools to do right. Im an expert at all types of soldering/desoldering.

Sometimes a department store soldering iron
and a DIYer's steady hand is not enough ...

Thats where I come in.

I can use my over 30+ years of hands-on soldering and desoldering experience to help you solve your issue, make something brand new, upgrade your existing electronic board - or other/invention.

I charge a fee for my time in the initial quote/consultation. This $10 fee covers my time in listening to all the facts in the phonecall and or email. It can include photos, conversation, parts search etc.
