    Quoted from Aniraf:

    I recall you stocking hard to find pinball wires for basically every color combination that exists. Do you still have those? I would love to get some kind of potpourri of wires for future projects.

    You may recall that, but I don't.

    We never sold electrical wire.

    Also.... I am now out of bare wire. And just a note, we had to limit the ground braid to just one roll per customer. If you ordered more I will refund for the extra when I refund for the excess shipping.

    That's all for now, I think.

    This was the kick in my butt to finally get my own riveting kit. Really sad to see you retire, but congrats on a well deserved exit from dealing with us crazy pinheads.

    #59 3 months ago
    Quoted from PinRestore:

    PinRestore will be closing before the end of this year. We are retiring!
    We are not interested in selling the business or the domain name.
    There will be no discounts and no re-stocking of items that sell out. All sales will be final.
    Thank you for your support these last 16 years.
    Scot and Debbie.

    Congrats on your retirement,
    why no interest in selling the business or domain if you can get some $$

    Yeah I would think even just the domain might be of interest to folks around here... But maybe they just want it for nostalgia? No law saying they gotta sell any of it

    #61 3 months ago

    Here we go again... Bear with me

    I am not out of the Rt angle LED mounts as mentioned above.

    But I am now out of the 10-32 KEP nuts.

    #62 3 months ago

    I hadn't heard of you guys before this thread but I placed a little order of some stuff I could use. Thanks for the fast turnaround and extras you threw in.

    #63 3 months ago

    Hey everybody,
    Scot just got a batch of dies finished today so I will start shipping tomorrow for those of you who ordered dies. I ran out of some of the rivets that go into the master kit so if you also ordered a kit it will be delayed a few days until I get my rivets in. Since everyone wants a roll of ground braid we decided to order more of that and I am waiting for that to come in as well. We are still limiting to 1 roll per customer. Once I have everything for your orders I will get them out. Again, thanks a bunch for your support and for your patience.

    This is one of a few recent threads of a business in the industry supplying parts calling it quits. Sad, and I hope, at least in this case, its a postive move to really retire and enjoy other things. However, I get the feeling the supplier base is starting to age out. Is anyone stepping in?

    #65 3 months ago

    New update:

    I have over 25 orders ready to go just waiting on ground braid and/or rivets for the rivet kit. Both should be here early this week and then all of those orders will be shipped. If you also ordered a rivet press that might take a few more days as Scot needs to make each one. Again, I appreciate your patience. Believe me, I am tired of walking around 25 boxes on the floor!

    I made one last order this week. Over the years I've really appreciated the items that you have sold. I did a lot more restorations in years past than I do now, but I figured I would stock up!!

    Thanks you so much for providing this unique selection of items and great service for all these year!!

    Thank you both for all you did over the years. Quality on everything I ever bought. Loved doing the Drill Press kit years back. Enjoy Retirement. I’m gonna go see if there’s any must have stuff before you close.

    Thanks for the updates! The rivet press / dies are a must have for the DIY'er in this hobby.

    #74 3 months ago

    Placed order and sorry to see you go. I bought your kit for the press and love it. Hope someone picks up selling the items you were carrying.

    Enjoy retirement.

    #75 3 months ago

    Sure. Why not.

    And yes, I do suck at retiring, Deb!

    Send me anything you want to get rid of, other than Scot, and I'll get rid of it for you.

    You know in one year you're just going to have a thread that says "Big Bucket of Pinrestore Stuff For Sale," right?

    And before you say it: Yes...I'm an asshole.

    You are an asshole, Randy, but also spot on.

    Deb is currently figuring shipping on larger bags. I may have lost my mind, but what the hell.
