Attention: I’m currently at capacity for repairs. You may continue to submit requests, but please understand I may not respond until I am ready to take on further projects.

I have been collecting Macs and other vintage computers as a hobby for over 15 years and have recently started recapping my own systems.

I currently offer refurbishment, repair, and capacitor replacement (aka “recapping”) services for vintage Macintosh (and other) computers. You are likely aware that these aging electrolytic capacitors can leak onto your motherboard / logic board. These leaks are corrosive in nature and can permanently damage your board, causing your system to no longer function.

If your vintage Macintosh has not had it’s capacitors replaced, you should consider doing this replacement yourself, or having this done by someone who is capable. Capacitor leakage is just one of the common issues that these computers can face. Leaking old clock (PRAM) batteries are another!

The solution to fixing the capacitor issue involves carefully removing the old capacitors, cleaning the board, and replacing the capacitors with long-lasting replacements.

If you are interested in these services please use the form below. If you have trouble viewing the form click here to view it in a new window.

I also offer other repair services for non-Macintosh computers and parts provided that I have the parts and equipment required.
