Here's one for sale in Akron, Ohio. (My general area)
https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net...96&oe=609DC930

Batteries down, possibly bad, flat tire (won't hold air). $50.00. I was thinking that the lean could be cut off, and the controls moved down lower.
This chair wouldn't have a lift feature, like the recliner my BIL had after he got cancer. (It lifted him up to an almost standing position, & would practically throw a lighter weight guy across the room - just exaggerating...)

Rest and heal up well before you go at it again - like was already said, we need your inspiration around here, but not at the expense of your health. Take care!

I haven't survived all I have by being stupid or careless. All evidence to the contrary.
Here is the rolling stool I have been using/ 15" tall when in the lowest position.
Here is the creeper. I'm thinking of putting a wooden box on it for a seat riser.
The benefit of this one is that it rolls much easier then that cheap HF stool. Which is what I believed caused the stump issues.
Nothing will happen before next Weds which is when my stump follow up visit is.
Now I'm getting a sore butt from sitting around so much.

Sorry to hear about the troubles with your stump. Sorry I haven't checked in in a while. I don't know if you have any organizations that will help out with something like a chair. The Lions and the Elks out my way will lend fixed up used chairs, walkers, crutches, etc. Maybe they could help you out. Take it easy and heal up.

Might be time to ditch that stool. It looks from here like the seat is starting to tilt over. Once that starts, its only a matter of time before it tips over under you. I saw on one of the YouTube shows a guy had an old office chair that he took the back off of and used for the same purpose. Much stouter, and it has handles for pushing up on when it is time to stand.

Take care

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

No doubt about the cheap stool,Skip.
I've done the office chair route before as well as many other things.
I usually watch on trash pickup days and there will be at least one office chair out by the side of the road.(I know. I'm cheap. )
Just changed out the dressing on my stump and all looks good.
I'm still gong to stick to my timetable of no shop work until after my follow up on Weds.
So it is written. So it shall be.......
Thanks all for keeping me in your thoughts.
Torchie

Back under it today. Gingerly.....
Revamped rolling stool. Shorter but rolls much easier.
PS sealed up. I may do the POR 15 and under coating tomorrow. It will be a better temp on Saturday though.
Picked up another piece of missing trim for the grill. I already have the DS one of these.
Thanks for looking in.......
Keep on keeping on.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
