Mike Blackport has updated my website – Thank you very much Mike!
There is now a PayPal button on the upper right side of the site through which you can make a contribution to my travel and office expenses. You might choose to donate because I’ve helped you on the phone or through a YouTube video. I still continue to answer technical calls and am able to answer a few emails. If you need an answer, CALL!
I want to thank Eli Albalancy and Wlliam Slabich who made contributions this past month.
WORKSHOP SPACE NEEDED!
I have been fortunate to have owned or had a workshop under lease for the past 45 years. Right now, I have nowhere to work. There are still a couple of projects I’m obligated to complete and I need 1000-1200 feet of space in the Grand Rapids area. This could be stand-alone space or shared space. It could be in a commercial district, it could be in a residential area. If you have space available or know someone who does, PLEASE contact me! John Twist (616) 307-6737.
