  • Pay It Forward Experiment

    Good morning, all!

    I can't recall if we tried this in the past or not, but I'm willing to give it another shot if there is interest at all.

    The idea of a "pay it forward" thread is to help move those old components and projects collecting dust on the shelf and replace it with something that you actually need/want. The thread is seeded with a gizmo/kit/etc. and whoever needs/wants it posts up that they'll take it. Shipping costs are fronted by the person offering the part up (I assume international people would need to buck up for extra shipping, but that shouldn't be a big deal). Once a person raises their hand to take the part, they're responsible for offering up something different to replace it, of equivalent value (or greater, I suppose).

    I would be willing to donate a few items to start things out, let's say something small (around $30 value), something more substantial (around $100?), and a bigger one (maybe $300?). Each would have its own thread.

    What does everyone think? Worthwhile or no?

      This community has already given me so much, I would love to give back in whatever way I could. I don't have as many cool toys as some of the rest of you, but by god if I can help, count me in.

        I'll try to get to the shop sometime this weekend and see what I have lying around that I can seed the thread(s) with.

        Stand by!
