Yes, I think it's unethical. First of all. if you are starting a
repair business why don't you focus on old cars or worn
washing-machines ? That's what a repair man (woman) does: repair
broken machinery. You take out the worn/broken part, look in our
repertorium, and order a new part and install it...
But, this has nothing to do with restoration or conservation.
So, if you ask for a price for "repairing" a "church book" I would
suggest $ 1,95 (all in)......
