Tech Q&A - Members Tips

There is a wealth of experience in our hobby. The many expert sources of information include:
  • MAFCA/MARC Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards
  • The Restorer Magazine
  • MAFCA's Technical Director column "Tech Q&A" in The Restorer magazine
  • On-Line on the MAFCA web site

In addition, many restorers have great ideas how to accomplish restoration tasks. Some of those "home brewed" ideas are presented on our web site for your pleasure. If you find value in them, the authors would be pleased to hear from you - click on their name to send them e-mail.
