Re: Why do we keep the junk we do?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Jeepchick has a real aversion to "crud", and I get endlessly petitioned to dump this or that to make the garage just a bare cavity with a vehicle sitting in it. I, on the other hand believe that you have to have a certain amount of crud just to operate, since it is the raw material from which GOOD stuff can be made. I draw the line at keeping old spark plugs, and old fan belts that are cracked, and I usually strip all the good fasteners and cords off defunct power tools before I toss them. If it is a power drill, I take off the chuck before it goes in the trash can.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I use a file box system for storage and the boxes are numbered so AT LEAST I can find the crud that I am looking for and the garage has a halfway neat appearance. Box # 131.....carbs; box # 127.....grinder parts. etc. etc.
