And a big shed.

I thought it might be just me - there's a motor from a Hoover washing machine under my workbench that I put there about twenty years ago. Plus most of the wiring harness. Not to mention the reconditioned, unused starter motor from a Leyland Mini from about the same time. If I throw either away, within a few days I'll need them.

When my mother in law passed away a while back, we contacted a charity to donate her bath lifter, reclining seat and reclining bed and, although they were in perfectly serviceable condition, they told me when they came to pick them up that they were most probably going to be scrapped!!!! I asked them to leave them as scrapping them would be a crime. I dismantled them and kept the motors and mechanisms and will fit them for my automatic feeding station project for the farm and may be a lifting "work bench" for bikes, mini-tractor lawn mowers etc... Luckily I have plenty of storage space (I even have an almost complete dismantled car somewhere).

I've mentioned before my late uncle and his even later brother and father who were the absolute Kings of keeping stuff "just in case". Cleared two houses, three garages and three large sheds of junk/scrap/stuff, the six out buildings single handedly. Sadly took a ton of steel and other metal to the dump before I discovered that much of it, like brass and copper, it could be sold for actual money! Did donate a lot of old tools to a charity though.
