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??

Just think of the cool things you can build with them!

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.

Good idee, but i had to shoot the horse for food, so thats out! RJ.

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"!
