Laoc's Repair

Owner: Laoc Kettlebrew, a dwarven engineer from out east somewhere heard of Wa-Daisho a few years back, and coming to investigate he discovered that repair facilities in this little town, were few and far between. Figuring he could make a killing in the meager market, he jumped in with both feet. He seems as though he's perpetually woken up on the wrong side of the straw mat, despite the fact that his plan has worked out better than he'd ever intended. Despite this, he'll never chase a customer away with grump - he may be cantankerous by nature, but he's not a fool.
Reputation: Laoc, although always seeming to be on edge, and greedy as a dragon with his treasure, Laoc's work is the absolute best in town. If there's something broke, he'll fix it if paid the right amount.
Description of Shop: Laoc's Repair is not exactly a spic and span looking establishment. Given the close proximity to Wa-Daisho's Civic Centers, several times in the last five years, he's had to have the place repainted, cleaned up, repaired, or flat out overhauled, because he uses only the cheapest materials and supplies possible to keep his "Shack" up. It's composed of a wooden structure, with ten garages - capable of taking even an RV or Tractor truck in for repairs. Although of sturdy construction, he has a tendency to buy cheap fixtures. On several occasions the garage doors have failed or fallen off of tracks, because they were made of cheap aluminum fittings he'd bought for hundreths of a credit. The white paint, the cheapest chalk based paint he could acquire, was so cheap that within two months of being painted, it was already beginning to flake and fade off of his place of business. He never paid it much mind however, and just continued to go about business as usual. In the opinion of his mother, "Can't fix a tranny with a good paint job!" Inside, it's much the same. The door handles are cheap, or broken - locks won't work, so have been jury rigged with home made locks and what not. The place also reeks of fuel and motor oil, and the sounds of air guns can be heard throughout - it's generally a back alley looking repair shop. The cash register works fine however, and is brand new by appearance compared to everything else in the shop.
Description of Services: Laoc's Repair can fix most anything under the sun from an electric toaster, to a nuclear powered S-Mart Hover Car. Although skilled in repair and reconstruction of weapons, he'll seldom do so unless offered double to triple the amount typically paid for such services.
