Ok i am looking to trade some of the things i have collected over the years with the intention of restoring or refurbing but i dont seem to get the time so thought id ask what other things you are into and see if i have anything that may be of interest cheers Frankie.

Frankie like you I thought when I was younger I would collect all sorts.
When I am old and grey I will sit and fix em, by that time they will be collectible and I will sit on a fortune.
In reality I was already old and grey, now I am older and bald and have piles of worthless junk.
My earsight has diminished and arferitus has stopped me from doing what I could have fixed all those years hago init?
I have got rid of armies of stuff but still have a battalion of broken Dunhill lighters as well as a regiment of working ones.
A fleet of broken watches and clocks and loose movements etc. Never did inherit my dads talent for getting them going again, just dreamed I had.
A wing of old confuser stuff some of which was bloody expensive bits, now a load of clutter.
You're right it's time to get rid, we need to downsize anyway so eBay here we come init?
We had the loft reinsulted a while ago and got rid of untold amounts of kids toys and clothes and stuff that was just bunged up there I am surprised the ceilings never came in.
At least I can see where my junk is now init?

I don't think I collect anything, if something doesn't have a use or is useable then I don't waste space keeping it :thinks:

I'll sort some out and see what is there, probably only junk but there might be the odd good bit.
Another thing I collected for some strange reason was writing slopes, sewing boxes and cutlery boxes.
I seemed to have a fixation with peeling veneer and woodworm holes, down to my last 3 cutlery boxes now got the rest gone at auction.
Another misspent venture, the auctions, buy for pounds and sell for pennies don't do that no more init?

Didn't like the look of mine either, which is why Wilma lives in a custom stock, and had an A&M cylinder to keep her weight down:goesred:

I've also got another precharged airgun for shooting rats and a couple of shotguns; a Browning GTS Elite and a Browning B725.

The HW77 was a fantastic gun and I should never have got rid of it.

Watch part pens and clocks.

Very much what my Father did Frankie, he was self trained and had customers coming from all avenues when i was a kid for him to repair their clocks, radios and watches ..

I remember the Capacitors and his soldering iron more than anything else ..

Sorry i can't help you with anything, my Mother cleared his garage not long after he died .. :down:
