I should sell my extra hand weights...

Both my brothers, several neighbors, and a handful of friends have inquired about the contents of my garage gym since I found out I have a broken back and won't be able to lift much of anything for 6+ months.

And appliance repair parts are hard to get. Been waiting for a control panel for a Jenn Air downdraft for 6 weeks now. The supplier cannot even get an accurate date from the manufacturer, and their CSRs are just providing bogus ETA times when they have no idea. It's about time to find a new name for customer "service".

Check out Penzeys.com. Wonderful quality. Shipping lead time is a bit slower during the pandemic.

I work in supply chain and some US manufacturers are having trouble with absenteeism, plant closures, etc. Asian manufacturers seem to be coming out of it, but some stocks are wiped and it will take time to build back up.

Not sure what part number you're looking for, but it looks like some places have stock.
