I would like to report that several weeks ago I trained one of the employees at The Hackery how to dismantle, clean and recap a drive along with how to test the spindle motor while separated from the drive. The first unit done was an immediate success.  A second unit was also a success and a third unit was planned to be done however an error in a BoM meant that not enough capacitors were ordered.

Please note however this was strictly for training, I cannot say peronslly if they are or are not currently or planning to repair other drives in future.
