    Default That junk has to go! ...

    Let's leave computing and software behind for a few minutes...


    "That junk has to go!" ... My partner said to me; for the Nth time, where N is a large number. For some unknown reason, I agreed with her this time, yes, it had to go.

    This is, "that junk", being referred to ...



    Circa 1972, Colchester Lathe Company "Student" centre lathe. Sadly neglected, now robbed of parts, very noisy gearbox, and going rusty. I last used it in 1994, when it was in somewhat better (working) condition.

    ... and tomorrow it's finally going to a local scrap merchant

    But hey!! This is in my workshop, so maybe it'll get a reprieve after all...


    So, what junk do you have lurking around...
    Regards, Paul

    If it is useful stuff, then why is it junk?

    I think it depends largely on the definition of "useful stuff"

    A new car may use half the amount of gas and contaminate even less.

    Various peripherals and hardware relating to the Amstrad CPC6128 computers I used in the 1980s and 1990s. I still have enough to keep one going and there are still some disks I want to look at to see if there is anything I should save from them.

    Sadly my wife passed away over ten years ago and so that sort of question doesn't get asked any longer.
