It's not uncommon to see older (10-20 year old+) gear to be tossed away and go landfill, even if simple fault was present, such as dead capacitors in power supply or some corrosion on connectors or dead battery. And often that gear is still working just fine, sometimes even outperforming newer hardware, in terms of usability, availability of service information such as repair manuals, schematics, BOMs, etc.
I'm doing repairs for own fun and learning, but wondering if this type of content actually wanted on engineering community? It could motivate people who into restoration/repairs more to produce videos/articles, etc. But I see it's rather cold commenting/viewing in here for few articles I had published before.
