Any you thought you had a pretty tool kit.

Also, looks like the ISS has both metric and SAE nuts to turn

This is a comment I added when I chose to share the post from blogger to google+. Oh, and I also set the visibility to only be folks in the Fixit Clinic circle.

I love finding so many great children's clinics. My wife worked at a clinic for over 15 years. Seeing those children's health restores was such a memorable experience. http://www.kitsapchildrensclinic.com

Josh Shupack reports back on Fixit Clinic XVV (#45) in Medford, OR, (which occurred concurrently with Repair Café Palo Alto on Sunday):

"I think everybody had a great time.  It was cool seeing you guys on video.  Everything got fixed except for a toaster :)
Attached is the one good picture I took.  Notice the plastic fork taped to hold open the android tablet!

"Also one of the participants took some pictures:

One of the participants brought in this crazy big commercial laptop, there is a photo of that.

"We need to have more publicity for the next one, but we're planning to do another one in 2 months. I'll let you know when we've set the date."

Repair Café HQ in the Netherlands covers Repair Café Palo Alto: here's the Google translate translation (apparently "Holy Cow!" has the same meaning in Dutch and English):

Holy Cow! 300 visitors Repair Cafe Palo Alto

A record turnout for the American Café Repair Palo Alto. There were over 300 visitors with broken stuff off. There seemed no end to the queue of people waiting. For the organizers and the 40 voluntary repairers was therefore work hard.

Peter Skinner of Repair Cafe Palo Alto, California and his colleague Peter Mui of cooperating Fixit Clinic startled a bit Sunday. "Holy Cow! It would not stop. There was a huge long line the streets. We are halfway through but stopped registering visitors, because it was clear that we could not help everyone. "Peter Mui filmed driving visitors, a fantastic video on his Facebook page.

Publications
Skinner explains the high turnout of publications in some newspapers about the Repair Café. There arose in Silicon Valley's biggest newspaper, the San Jose Mercury News, a great story . And other local newspapers also placed announcements of the Repair Café. "People came from far and wide," said Skinner, who also wondering whether to place the goal is not left shot. "What is the environmental benefit when people have to drive 40 km to the Repair Café?" He consults therefore soon with new groups in the area who want to establish a Repair Café.

Feedback
Despite the fact that not everyone could be helped, it was great enthusiasm, says the organizer satisfied: " Feedback was very, very positive "The next meetings are scheduled on 21 April and 21 July.
