Aye and there's the rub; I feel weighed down by the accumulation of old iron but when I start to consider individual engines I think - oh, I like that one!

I can relate to that as well Nick! I have been attempting a 'stocktake' and a cull recently of what I don't really need engine and partswise and so far all that has been 'removed' from two garages and a shed has been old rag and packaging! A large box of old rusty bolts/nuts /washers etc WILL be going as I'm fed up of searching fruitlessly through it to no avail and in the end buying some new items anyway.

Today I was offered very cheaply a really nice and original rotary motor mower from the early fifties which appealed to my horticultural equipment passion but I have no space spare to store the thing so I passed on the offer. What was the old saying "Tomorrow we must get organized" or similar, maybe tomorrow will be THE DAY but don't hold your breath!

Pete.

Got loads of stuff like that and it regularly supplies 'just the thing' which not only saves waiting for a new item to be delivered but is very often a much nicer machine made bolt say, rather than a modern cold-headed thread rolled version.

I threw away a box of old speakers yesterday and freed up some more space for some more tat.
