Hi, I'm Jan. I repair/hack/make/destroy stuff on YouTube. Electronics, Repair, Tinkering, Retrocomputing, VintageAudio. As unprofessional as it gets.

Why Patreon? I believe that it should be your choice to give me money. I'm strongly opposed to things like running ads on my channel just to give me some income. I'd rather try making good videos you can enjoy and throw some money my way if you enjoy them enough. But it should definitely be YOUR choice to help me out. No pressure. ;)

I'm neither a rich man (rather poor, really) nor a professional electronics guy. I have a boring regular dayjob to pay the rent and everything else (including my hobby). Sometimes I sell stuff I repaired and make some extra money that way. It really helps to have the Patreon thing as a little monthly extra enabling me to buy spare parts, tools, and interesting things to show you on the channel. The Patreon money enables me to pay the extra rent for my little lab (which is an extra room in my flat). There's also at least a little truth in that "time is money" thing. You can't buy time, of course. But you can help me to have more time for making videos I don't have to spend making money in other (probably less enjoyable for everyone) ways. I'm a hobbyist who likes to share his experience and maybe enable you to do stuff yourself. I believe in repairing things rather than discarding them. I also believe in learning about how things work rather than just using them. And I sincerely hope to make people smile sometimes.

I'm going to drastically reduce the time I spend at my dayjob and dedicate more of my time to making better videos.
