I was a bit shocked at the number of pieces I've repaired over the last 20 years. I'm figuring a couple of thousand a year. On a one piece per stop day, I'd do 4 or five, When visiting a warehouse or a moving claim, it might be a couple of dozen, The repairs fell into broad categories -- cleaning upholstery (generally food or "body fluids"); fixing upholstery fabric -- popped buttons, open seams, tears; broken frames in upholstery, casegoods, tables and chairs; fixing manual and electric relining mechanisms and sectional connectors; marks on wood finishes - ink, markers, water and chemical blushes, scuffs, scratches and dog chews; remove and replace parts - drawer glides, upholstery panels, legs, recliner mechanisms, hardware.
