I am just the opposite. I am getting rid of stuff. I have stuff, but if I don't have a need for it, out of here! If I can't sell it I give it away.
So where do think he gets all this cool stuff from?   ;)  :D.  I'm a keeper myself almost ashamed to say, but mine would fit into the "junk" part...

With the cold and the snow and mud I have been avoiding the junkyard.
Today I needed to make a trip to town and I could not resist stopping in
to see if anything was new. This is what I found. Cost me a cool $20.00.
I have no idea if it works but not much can go wrong with a welder.

I actually built a spot welder.  I used brass rod for the electrodes - worked fairly well.  I used a "programmable" timer to trigger a relay.  It has three dials to select from .001 seconds to .999 seconds and then you can switch something else to slide the scale to whole seconds and minutes.  Pretty cool timer.

Considering you've probably already got two of everything I've got, not much. Do you have a wish list?
