GDO's

rustyj14(W/PA)December 13, 2009

I live just north of Pittsburgh, Pa. and i have two garage door openers i would donate to somebody, for a mere pittance! I have the push button things and other things, in a white plastic bag. A friend was moving, and i helped him, so he gave me the openers. Don't remember the make. Too slippy to go outside to look!

For everyone's education: GDO's are known as "Garage Door Openers", as i have seen them listed in these columns!
Does that help??

Rusty you could even put one up in your garage. I am aware of your opinion of them but it'll change once you get one.

Yes, i have noticed there are some nice chains and cables, and light bulbs, and other things, such as powerful electric motors, and controls. And, two lengths of strong T-bars, things i use a lot to make things.
HMMM--Better hurry----

I have a 14 ft wide wooden door that can be lifted with one hand! Why would i want to go to the trouble of installing a GDO, with all of the troubles i have read about here?
no thanks! RJ

It would be handy when you hitch up your horse for the trip to town Rusty.

A friend had a garden on the hill above his home, and he had a hard time carrying things up to the garden.
So, he built an elevator from garage door opener parts, and built a track with the t-bars, and the chains and other parts. I got a lot of free parts from a local GDO fixer, and gave them to my friend. The elevator worked great. But, my friend got sick and died later. Don't know what happened to the "elevator"!
