Chicagoland Area Help
« on: July 03, 2014, 08:08 PM »
Hello all,

I am visiting with my elderly grandmother, helping with some handyman tasks around her house.  I need to refinish her front door and make some repairs on the garage door. 

Unfortunately I forgot to pack a Plug-It cable for my RO90! 

I'm in Oak Brook for a week, then have to run back to the east coast to go back to school.  I would sincerely appreciate it if anyone could let me borrow an extra Plug-It cable for a few days.  I would really rather not have to buy one just to finish up these few tasks.  You can send me a message or reply to this thread.  I have a car and will come out to meet you. 

Thank you in advance!

Vinny

If you need anything else let us know. If Dan doesn't  have it I most likely do.

Peter, couldn't agree more.  More of a community, willing to help others than talking about similar interests!

Thank you everyone for all of the offers, and most especially Mr. Dan Rush! 

It was great meeting you and I sincerely appreciate your generosity.  It was interesting trying to explain to my grandmother that I didn't actually know you, but reassured her that there are "good guys" out there in internet land. 

Initially, I was a little bummed about coming here to fix up her place before she passes away, but this, on top of all the old stories I get to hear have made me grateful for the opportunity.   

Definitely bigger than woodworking.  Thanks again.

. Glad it worked out for you.  That door looks heavy, and nice with the finish.
What did you end up doing to it?
