After 30 years in the printing industry working in machine maintenance, my former company closed the plant I was at.  So now I'm repairing vending equipment.  So far so good.

Well la dee da.  The two fields have nothing in common except that both require good troubleshooting skills.  What else makes you qualified for vending repair?  I hope you're working for a vending company where someone can actually teach you how vending machines work and get properly repaired.  It would be like leaving the printing industry and deciding "I'll be a car mechanic."  If you're not being trained by someone then your customers are paying for your learning curve - not professional.  Obviously you are mechanically inclined as I am.  I also worked in the printing business for a few years.  Just something that I enjoyed because I like machines, much like you I suppose.

Honestly vending repair isn't rocket science most of the time.

The repairs themselves are pretty straightforward, and so is like 80-90% of the troubleshooting.

But that 10-20% of the time where its not a real common problem, that's where experience counts. And what separates the good techs from the ok.
