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… :\

:question: So, what junk do you have lurking around…

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

I think it depends largely on the definition of “useful stuff” lol!

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.
