The Repair Shop – 3 February 2021 – 3/2/2021 – Wednesday – BBC

Series 6 Episode 11 of 14

Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

There is a big project for guitar expert Julyan Wallis: a 1960s guitar that belonged to Robyn Griffith’s grandfather, who had a real love of jazz but never had the opportunity to learn to play this cherished instrument. Robyn has inherited not just the guitar but a talent for playing, and he would love to enjoy it. The guitar has been broken and silent for decades, and Julyan is his last hope.

Wood-restoration expert Will Kirk has his work cut out when Christine Clay from Doncaster delivers a handmade card table that is very dear to her heart. The one-of-a-kind octagon table was made for her by her father, who recently passed away. Friday night was cards night as Christine grew up, and her dad was quite the player. Christine would dearly love to start playing again, using this significant table, and raise a glass to her dear dad.

Terry Poole from Berkshire is next to arrive with his late father’s bookmaker’s clock bag, hopeful that the Repair Shop siblings, horologist Steve and leather expert Susie, will join forces to get this unusual keepsake coming up trumps again. While Steve tackles the locking mechanism and the clock face, Suzie gives the cracked leather pouch a good going-over with saddle soap.

Finally, expert David Burville is put to the test when Liz Harvey from Sheffield arrives with what’s left of a Victorian clockwork pigeon. It belonged to Liz’s grandmother, and although she remembers it well, she has never seen it go. Liz recently attempted to fix it herself, but with disastrous results. David casts a new wheel, rebuilds a set of mini bellows to create the pigeon’s coo and overhauls the wind up mechanism, and eventually the little metal pigeon performs.
