    Recently I was in an accident. Kind of messed up my life for a few months. I started a thread and asked the Pinside community if they could help. Boy they sure did!

    Here's the thread:
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/i-had-a-bad-accident-and-need-a-little-help-i-hate-to-ask

    Yes a few members put me through the wringer. But well they should! This is a community and we protect each other.

    But now I want to give back. I sold almost everything I own last year trying to get out of debt, fix my 3 family home and sell it. That is why I needed help when the accident happened. No income for 3 months and cash strapped, and now medical bills.

    But I found a few things left. My wife sold some clothes and said she can afford to ship a few things for me. I want to give them to those who helped. And if they do not want or need them , then it will go to anyone else who can use them on this awesome forum!

    One item per person please

    I'm doing better. Still no range of motion in my wrists and they hurt like Heck, but I am doing better every day. Once again thanks so much for all the prayers, well wishes and donations!

    I want to give back, even if in just a small way. I have some pinball items I would like to give to any who helped. My wife has some money from selling some clothes and said she could afford to ship a few items. So the following items are free to anyone who donated. One item each please

    1: Spoken For/Gone ............. Whirlwind Translite......Used but in fairly good condition.

    2: Spoken For/Gone ........... PinWrench - Perfect for pinball leg and backbox bolts.

    3: Spoken For/Gone ........... Logic Probe

    4: Button Nut Remover/ CRT adjustmen tools / IC chip remover

    5: Spoken For/Gone ........... Circuit Breakers - From 1/2A - 20A - Perfect for when you have a fuse blowing and don't want to keep blowing $2 fuses.

    6: Hulk - Gottlieb Backglass - It is flaking but makes a great wall hanger. Can't ship this one but if someone close donated they can come get it anytime.

    7: Snes Classic. Hacked for adding games

    Once again a big THANK YOU to Pinside and all they did

    id be interested in the whirlwind translite

    #6 6 days ago

    This is very generous. Hope you are doing better. Take care.

    Glad to hear you are doing a little better each day. I have been busy with life and had not looked in at your go-fund-me recently. Nice to see you raised over $10k but I am a little disappointed to see you didn't hit your original goal. Maybe this gesture will remind people about you and help you raise a little more cash to help with the bills. Keep doing what the doctors tell you but don't push too hard too quickly.

    As far as the "giveaway" here I really don't need anything for helping someone in need but it is very nice of you to do this.

    Best wishes!

    I get a little more each day. I might hit the goal but I am SO grateful with what I have received so far. It has paid the medical bills and helped with this months bills. If I do hit my goal then I can probably make it through another month of bills. By then "maybe" I can do a little work?

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    I'll take the logic probe, if it hasn't been spoken for.

    #11 6 days ago

    I am glad that are you doing better. The only thing I am interested in is having you paying it forward if the opportunity ever arises. However, after reading how people vouched for you I am sure you would do that anyway.

    #12 6 days ago

    I could use the pinwrench if no one else has claimed it that donated to your fund, sir. Glad things are looking better for you.

    #13 6 days ago

    I would be interested in the pin wrench as someone who got a chance to donate. Hope all is well now got to take it one day at a time sometimes.
