This highly creative activity can be highly technical, simply clever, or both. Hackers bask in the glory of building it instead of buying it, repairing it rather than trashing it, and raiding their junk bins for new projects every time they can steal a few moments away.

My mom has a RCA VIT51W stereo console in good condition. She is wanting $300 for it. How would be the best way to find a buyer? Is $300 a fair price? If anybody is interested you can call her at 405-818-1548 Faye Graham. She bought new in 1967

Hi,

I was wondering what your thoughts were on “Maker Pro”, would you consider adding them to the “Resources” page under the “Informational Links” header? Here is the URL for their website if you would like to have a look:

https://maker.pro/

I am looking forward to hear from you the soonest.

Best,
Marge

Hi Marge,

Thank you for your request to add the maker.pro link to our website. Unfortunately, that website does not hold related interest for our website viewers.

Looking for someone to restore an antique radio for my husband. We live in Fayetteville, AR and want some place close enough to deliver it to since it is in a wood cabinet. Thanks for any help. I have bombed out searching the web.
