Free: 4 foam board pieces (Rockville) Gifted - These pieces were cut from a piece of rigid foam insulation board. They are not new, but they could be used for a small project. Each piece is about 1.5 x 2 feet in size. The edges are not crisp and clean, and there are some tire marks where a car rolled over them, but the pieces are surprisingly resilient and rigid. They are a lovely shade of light purple. I also have a couple of smaller pieces.

Free: Yamaha receiver (Rockville) Gifted - **There are at least two problems with this receiver. First, the display doesn't work properly. Perhaps someone who knows what they are doing could fix it. It might just be an internal bulb, though replacing it could be tricky. Second, it looks like there was a cable plugged into the CD input connection, and the connectors were snapped off, so you can't plug in to the CD input anymore. However, you can use one of the other inputs (phono or tape) to connect a CD player. This unit does actually pick up FM signals and play just fine, but of course you can't see what station you are tuned to unless you shine a flashlight into the display, and even then, you can just barely see it, so it's rather inconvenient, to say the least.

Free: Speaker wire pieces (Rockville) Gifted - Can anyone use 6 short pieces of copper speaker wire? They are various lengths, with the longest one being about six feet. Free: Back support belt (Rockville) Expired - Adult sized. I think I used this many years ago with a back injury. I can't say when it should or shouldn't be used.

Request: Hi-fi FM receiver (Rockville) Expired - I'm looking for a standard size AM/FM receiver in working condition with connections for a CD player. Free: Light duty work table (Rockville) Gifted - The table frame is from IKEA, so it can be taken apart and put back together again using the standard IKEA wrenches, which are included along with the instructions. It's meant to be an ordinary table frame, so you shouldn't sit or stand on it, or place anything really heavy on it. If it is disassembled, it will fit in most small cars with the rear seat folded down. Currently the frame is partly disassembled. The top is a piece of 5/8" Baltic Birch plywood that is 2.5 x 4.5 feet in size. It currently is not attached to the frame, but you could fasten it to the frame with some simple hardware, which I can provide if you want. The top is painted green on one side and is unpainted on the other. Both the frame and top are in used condition and have marks and screw holes in them.

Request: Blank paper (Rockville) Expired - I'm looking for some ordinary blank paper to use for note taking. It can be either lined or unlined, and either loose or bound. Notebook paper would be about the right size, though a slightly smaller size would be OK, too. Partly used pads of paper would be fine as long as there are enough sheets left to make it worth the trip. White paper would be best, but light-colored paper might be OK. Free: 4 big markers (Rockville) Gifted - King size Sharpies, chisel tip. Red, blue and 2 black.

Also 5 freight cars and one caboose.

Free: Scooby Doo Monopoly (Rockville) Gifted - This game is well worn from years of use, and a few things are missing, but you could manage to play without them. The box and the packaging are in rough shape. The only things that are missing that I know of are: * one of the deeds for one of the properties * one of the six player tokens (the pieces that you move around the board) * a few of the hotels

Free: Bicycle pump (Rockville) Gifted - Tire pump for bicycles. It worked the last time that I used it, which was a couple of years ago. It has a built-in air pressure gauge, but I'm not sure if it's accurate. I use my own gauge instead.
