New guy from Michigan
« on: October 27, 2016, 12:59:51 PM »

Hello everyone,

New guy here from West Michigan. Currently work IT for the Aerospace industry with one of my many hobbies being payphones.
I hope to help out others here with their payphones plus I am happy knowing I am not the only one with this obsession.

-Rob

Welcome!

Dad's side of the family is from West Michigan - I need to go back to visit, as I spent many a summer at my Grandparent's house.

Welcome Rob, I think you will enjoy it here. I have 6 pay phones that all need some type of work I haven't gotten around to yet.
