Post by Paul B on Thu 30 Sep 2010, 4:02 am

I am thinking of starting to offer a service as below, do you think it would be worth it and would many people be interested in using such a service?

Lego Model Service Guide
October 2010


This document outlines the standard service procedures and tasks I offer to undertake on Lego models (mostly Technic). This services is “free of charge” except for the cost of parts and return postage if required. Where possible good quality second hand parts will be used and these will be charged at 50% of the “new” part price, where new parts need to be used I will confirm the total cost with the owner first and charge the parts at cost price.

Below I have listed as an example the tasks I would undertake on Lego Technic set 8436 (http://www.hyperrealm.com/markl/lego/8436-large.jpg)

1) Check overall condition of model and note any damaged / worn / missing parts.

2) Check front of cabin / frame and clean all surfaces, confirm steering works as expected, remove cabin and clean inside / outside of cabin. Check lights/ mirrors and replace parts as needed.

3) Test movement of wheels and function of V6 engine, confirm all pistons work and check diff / drive line / gears for correct operation. Clean all exposed surfaces. Remove engine block from frame and remove pistons / crank arms, clean all surfaces, replace parts as need. Examine transmission / drive line gears and replace as needed.

4) Remove front wheels and examine for signs of wear / damage, check steering linkage and gears, replace as needed. Clean tires / wheels and steering components.

5) Check front half of frame for signs of wear / damage, clean all exposed surfaces.

6) Remove rear wheels and examine for signs of wear / damage, check axels and replace as needed. Clean tires / wheels.

7) Check operation of turn table / crane arm. Note times for full operation. Remove turn table. Check for signs of wear / damage to turntable and replace as needed.

8- Check rear half of frame for signs of wear / damage, clean all exposed surfaces.
