Free: 4 foam board pieces (Rockville) Gifted 17d - 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: Wrigley Field book (Rockville) Expired 23d - A collection of stories written by various people. Good condition. Paperback.
Free: Several items (Rockville) Expired 38d - 1. Arch-shaped cookie cutter. 2. Citrus juicer, the kind that you insert directly into a piece of citrus fruit, not sure how well it works. 3. Top popper, for opening pop-top cans, so you don't damage your fingernails. 4. Another popper, looks like it might also work on glass pop bottles, and it even has a key ring. Take any or all of these items.
Request: Coin purse/pouch (Rockville) Expired 53d - Looking for one that will easily fit into a pocket. Free: 2 Donald Duck t-shirts (Rockville) Expired 66d - Used but in good condition, large size. The happy one is size 2XL. The angry one is XL and is darker blue and has some wear on the imprinted image which you can see in the picture. Take one or both.
Free: Yamaha receiver (Rockville) Gifted 83d - **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 84d - 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 86d - 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.
Free: Ankle brace, left (Rockville) Expired 86d - Size is "small". I don't know when it should or shouldn't be used.
Request: Hi-fi FM receiver (Rockville) Expired 97d - 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 101d - 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 105d - 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: Rusty baking pan (Rockville) Expired 139d - Does anyone have a use for an 8 x 8 metal baking pan? It has a bunch of scratches on the inside, and it is actually rusting in places. It's headed for the scrap metal recycling soon. Free: N scale track and trains (Rockville) Gifted 146d - Over 100 pieces of N scale model railroad track, all are short pieces, and mostly curves. Also 5 freight cars and one caboose.
