eBay is looking for the super screwdriver: old-school professional Andreas Winkler
As a juror on the new YouTube format “eBay sucht den Superschrauber”, Winkler wants to show what he’s really capable of. AUTO BILD spoke to the self-made screwdriver!
“If my modern Sprinter breaks down, I’ll take it to Mercedes”
You can tell a good screwdriver by the fact that he can see in passing whether he needs a size 10 or size 13 open-end wrench, says Winkler. A (maximum) mediocre runs more often. It takes not only talent, but also perseverance. Because: Only someone who dares to try new things and grows with the challenges becomes an excellent mechanic. “It’s better to lie awake at night brooding over possible solutions than always staying at the same level” – this also includes not being afraid of repairing higher-priced cars.
And yet he makes exceptions. Andreas Winkler cannot operate digital diagnostic systems. And he doesn’t intend to change that either. The only computer in his workshop is in the customer reception. “If my modern Sprinter is broken, I’ll take it to the Mercedes dealership.” In the jury community of “eBay sucht den Superschrauber” he is the pure screwdriver, “of which unfortunately there are hardly any”. Last but not least, he is certain that he will repair classic cars well into old age. “Until I fell down in a vise at 85.”
