Excellente idée pour démocratiser le savoir faire.

Endroit très bien tenu et organisé, belle ambiance.

J’y suis allé dans le cadre d’un atelier de réparation d’appareils électroniques avec Insertech.

Super concept !

Merci à Martin pour ta patience et ton expérience ! Après quelques essais-erreur nous avons réussis à réparer mon séchoir et il fonctionne à perfection !
