    I find this poll of great interest for number crunchers. look at the low numbers of newbies
    I rarely come across anyone servicing below 30 y.o. of are anywhere.....most people I know are like the poll shows near retirement in next 5-15 years The part that suck is companies are going to have to pay more for people in this job in the future but We wont see that kind of $$ now. no matter how good they make machines they will always break.

    ...companies are going to have to pay more for people in this job in the future but We wont see that kind of $$ now.
    Don't count on that-most of the OEMs are gearing up on assembly -replacement parts, customers can do the PMs, if a machine is a problem it will be cycled out of the office, replaced with a comparable model. Just like Television repair, our job of copier repair is quickly becoming a 'replace-instead-of-repair' type of industry....

    Started late 1975, working on both manual and electric typewriters, adding machines, calculators, duplicators , etc.
    Then into shredders, colators, dot-matrix printers, copiers, computers, electronic calculators, etc.
    Remington, Olympia, IBM, Olivette, Hermes ( found a set of diodes a few years ago and laughed as I threw them away ), Corona, Smith Corona, Gestetner, Standard, Apeco, Toshiba, Copy Stat, Mita, Cannon. Really too many to talk about.
    Now working only on Kyocera's.
    BUT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO RETIRING ONE DAY. If I live long enough that is.

    I hope all you tech's have a great day...it doesn't matter how long you have been doing this, it only matters that you care enough to do a good job.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
