    Most interesting copier location

    What's your most interesting service location?

    I've got machines in prisons, which are often not the kind of interesting you want.

    One on an island that was delivered by ferry then carried on horse drawn cart to its install location. I have to walk to it every time for service, up a rather steep hill.

    A couple in an administration building between a set of locks so I can often look out a window at a large freighter going by during service calls.

    Every year we rent a copier to the local fair grounds for a week.

    We had a Canon NP 3825 at a gentlemen's club years ago.

    Funny how much service that thing tended to need.

    So, just when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

    A local university had a machine just down the hall from where they dissected human cadavers. Other techs refused to go there as the students often left the doors open. It was common to see brains sitting on a table, students dicing up a human arm or leg. The entire hallway smells like formaldehyde, even the water from the fountain.

    Armoured car service, armed guards hover over you while in the vault. Very careful while I'm there.

    I've had them in closets soo small you had to turn it 90degrees so you could open/remove the paper trays.

    I have a small OKI mps2731 (color) in a vet office... every six months I have to go in .. tear it down and vac all the animule hair from it.

    My fav one is in a gun store .. in the locked room with the extra ammo n guns. I always seem to spend my money when I visit them... but I have some nice semi-auto's and plenty of food for them!

    Nuclear testing facility, you get tested for radio activity on your way in and out.
    Kruger national park speed limit is 50km/hour the machines are 100km apart.
    All kinds of mines, hate induction tests and wearing PPE.
    Jip had a strip joint before, wish it was classy, removing stick pompoms from the machine is not fun.
    Hate going to any kind of embassy mostly the kind were a marine needs to follow you every were.
    ...

    Whatever

    Not a copier but a fax machine. This was in a meat processing plant. I refused to go back there, i just could not take the stench, but the guys who worked there was comfortable. Big bank vault, very interesting indeed to see.

    Re: Most interesting copier location

    The most interesting place was inside a mountain that used to store nukes.

    Back in analog days we had pagers and 10 steps inside the mountain, signal lost.

    Had to walk about 200 yards to where machine was.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    Re: Most interesting copier location

    Forgot about one in a hospital emergency room, right in the room. I'd be working on the copier as they were wheeling patients in. I was there back years ago during SARS. I had to wear the full gown and mask, while trying to repair it, following their adopted SARS protocool. Most miserable location ever. Most hospitals have the machines in offices, not right in the emergency ward.

    Cement pit. When it's dry, dust like cloud, when it rain, you have to go to the car wash everytime you exit the area, cause the sludge if left to get hard, damages the abs wheel sensors. Fantastic view to the pit though, but not like going there.

    That's what prisons are like. Have a guard following you around the whole time, until you don't.

    We have a machine at the nurses desk in the local ER. I've heard some unfun things.
