TUNE-UP Service   

Just like your car needs a tune-up your 3M transparency maker or Thermo-fax needs a tune-up as well.  Flat fee includes Lube and Adjustment. (Note: For an extra $50 fee I clean the cover, front console and the power cord. I also do some detail cleaning of the machine.)


Clean the cover, front console and some detailing $50.

IMPORTANT: You must pack the machine properly buy a heavy duty box and over pack with packing peanuts.  Buy insurance in case of shipping damage!  We will use the same box and packing to return the machine to you.  We ship with Fedex.  We are Not Responsible for shipping damage.  No warranty for rollers, belt or bulb.  If the bulb breaks in shipping buyer agrees to purchase a new one.  We rarely have shipping damage maybe 1 in 25-50 machines probably less.  But we do get shipping damage from machines that are shipped to us due to improper packing.  Again, We are Not Responsible for shipping damage.

If we can not fix the machine or if parts are unavailable we charge a flat fee of $50 plus return shipping.

NOTE: 15 amp thermofax machine Lamps are NOT available. If you have a 15 amp machine and the lamp is broken or dark, I can NOT purchase 15 amp Lamps / BULBS. I can convert your 15 amp thermofax machine to accept a 12 amp lamp. I do not convert machines with older conical speed control or 220v machines. I only convert some models, so please send photos of the inside (front and back view) and outside.

If you need service and you know you need one of the Common parts replaced below. Please add to your order before you complete payment.

NO Drop-off: With a steady flow of machines shipped to me I have found shipping much easier than setting up 2 appointments for drop-off and pick-up. If your local then shipping should be very reasonable and generally arrive overnight. Let me know your local and I can lower the return shipping price. Thank You.

I have had to add a $10 per day storage fee, this begins 20 days following notification that your machine is complete. At 75 days the machine will be forfeited, it will be mine to do with as I please.
