"Andrew, Get yourself some new diodes!"

Thank you so much for your support.


Everything from Patron goes into acquiring new components such as the basics - including Diodes!

You cant build a full wave bridge rectifier with any less than 4 of course - but you already knew that! :)

Thank you so much for your support. Everything from Patron goes into acquiring objects to break and rarely a new tool (actually I am not sure this has happened yet!)

Occasionally I have a clear our and give away stuff, I always prioritise on Patrons - also you can ping me anytime on Discord for help on something.

Welcome to The Backoffice, initially started off as my experiment to see if I can sustain the willpower to record a new random YouTube each day for a month, but now growing into an extremely regular feature (daily!). 

I do accept the odd free 'review sample' but I generally buy the majority of items I rip apart or review so that I am not influenced in any way by the vendors! From time to time this is a problem as I am unable to work on certain things that are requested because frankly, making videos is a costly business and even costlier when you destroy a lot of the things you buy! (lets be fair, I do fix a lot as well!)

I always aim to produce videos that are useful to you, the viewer, and hopefully enjoyable as well. If you feel motivated to contribute towards the running costs of The Backoffice Show, everything you donate here will be put into bringing you more, and hopefully bigger and better teardowns and builds!

And as always, I will be using a chunk of your pledges in to aid my in my quest to buy all the tat I can find on eBay, carboot sales, charity shops and gumtree in order to review them for you - because lets face it, new stuff is nice, but not nearly as nice as finding a gem in the rough. 

Periodically I will be holding a special thank-you to all my supporters by giving away some blind-boxes of these wares, I like to see this as a generous prize rather than me offloading my junk!

When I reach 100 patrons, I will design a PCB gadget every month that you can build! You have seen the previous design streams, I love doing them, if we have enough people on the streams and support I am sure I can do them with regularity and make Patron runs of PCBS so you can make yours too!
