Closed For Repairs

I got some repair work on the bench right now, so I am not going to be able to follow through with some of my plans.  As a silversmith, I have a love hate relationship with repairs.  On one hand, the piece is not mine and all sorts of things could go wrong ruining the piece.  On the other hand, a piece well made can teach me something I might not have known before attempting the repair.  I don't charge anything to repair something I made, so it is hard to come up with a price for repair work.  Sometimes the repair will lead to another sale...so I just have to keep a good attitude about it, and hopefully it will work out and please my customer.
