Sounds like he has enough stress outside the hobby,maybe give him more time before getting to extreme.
Heres what he wrote :
Dear loyal customers and friends,
After weeks of self-deliberations, I have come to the realization that I can no longer maintain a reasonable schedule for repairing pinball equipment. The work schedule at my job has me working 10-12 hour days on a regular basis. Couple that with personal situations at home that consume more of my time and mental energy. In the end, I am drained both physically and mentally and can no longer muster up the enthusiasm that I once had when it comes to pinball repair. I’ve realized I have some boxes waiting their turn for over 2 months now and that is not acceptable to me, but there is nothing I can do at this time to improve my turnaround.
It saddens me to have to do this because I really do enjoy working with you and your pinball stuff but I just have to give it a rest. For how long I cannot say at this time but until my situations change at work and/or at home, I can no longer pursue this hobby of mine.
I truly appreciate all the business and support I have received from folks like you, and perhaps sometime in the near future my situation will change and I can take it up again, but for now I have to stop. As of today, I will no longer accept new work. If I have stuff of yours, rest assured I will do all I can do to finish it up and get it back to you as fast as I can. If that is OK with you, I appreciate your patience and promise you I will get to your stuff and get it back to you, repaired as we initially discussed. If, on the other hand, you have waited long enough and would like your stuff back in the same condition as when you originally sent it, just let me know and I will return it back to you, or ship it to any U.S. address you prefer, at no charge to you.
Again, I honestly appreciate your business, and cherish the many relationships I have made over the years. In the future, I may resume repair services for the Bally Home Version machines, since I don't think there are many others offering such service, but for now, I just have to stop everything for a while and catch my breath.
