Ok, so I got this Mystic a little while ago. No MPU, backglass flaking slowly, and lamp driver took a dose of battery acid from the MPU. And Mystic is not a super-sought-after pin... so... Fair game.

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

I screwed a toilet bowl. ... Actually, to be more precise, Joblo has an Austin Powers pin on which the toilet bowl assembly was missing a couple of screws. The originals were 6-32 machine screws, but 1" long. I went with 1-1/4" to give the screw more thread length and give it more rigidity...

Let's keep the positivity. The posts have been removed. And I am sure I don't have to warn the extreme minority that posted them.
