Our good friend Mike (BurritoBandito) was hurt two and a half months ago when his ball mill exploded causing burns and the amputation of one of his pinky fingers.  Just like you would imagine, the bills are coming due and he is hurting to keep up.  I am not asking for donations here, I will set up a GiveForward fund next week when I have use of both hands.

 

Instead, I am asking you all to look through your stuff and offer something to an auction here, starting as soon as something is posted and ending October 10th at midnight.  Here are the guidelines for how this works:

 

-Post an item along with pictures if available as a reply, open bidding will continue until midnight (Central time USA) on the 10th.  The winner will send me a check or gift to paypal in the amount of the winning bid and the person offering the item will pay for the shipping within reason (overseas winners may need to contribute).  

 

-I will email the winners address to the person offering the auction item, once the items are all paid for, a check will be sent to BB.  

 

-I will keep a list of all items and will update them every few days, no PM or emails please, everything gets posted in this thread as an open auction.

 

HERE WE GO!

I suppose those offering up their stuff for auctions does. Or Dagabu will have to go back in after the thread ends on the 10'th, and make a "score board" of sorts.

B!

Need to get some action going here.     I'm going to lowball bid $30 on the 3/4 go-getter tooling and hoping someone wants to outbid me.   Not that I wouldn't mind getting it for that initial bid, however,  I know it's worth more.

 

edit - p.s. who is keeping tally?

 

I will be keeping the tally once we see some movement and will update it in the evenings.  Thank you for the bid!

I never look in this section of the site and just happened to look in. Maybe some stickies in other forums would get more traffic?

I will see if I have anything I can round up. Would probably be chemicals of some sort.

To keep things organized, I think I'll just make a temporary section over the weekend.  That way we can go 1 thread per item/lot, and make things a lot easier to keep track of.  If I get to it soon, it wont be much trouble to move everything where it needs to be.  I unfortunately don't have time to take care of it today.

 

I can put it somewhere more noticeable more easily that way as well.


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

Counting today, there are only ten days to go!  I know you all have stuff you have never even used sitting on the shelf, give it some new life, help a pyro buddy, make yourself feel good!  Donate and bid!
