The 8SE Tube No Longer Lives Between 2 Settee Cushions

My wife was not happy.  (But very kindly put up with it for months!)

So - 2 large old bits of wood, 2 small old bits of wood, 8 screws, and 30 minutes later the OTA has its own sturdy, safe stand, which can easily be placed well out of the living room!

Brilliant use of scrap wood, looks simple yet effective:)

...and is precisely why we all have a garage/shed/loft full of seemingly useless bits of wood that might come in useful one day :smile:

I'm starting a workshop clearout. Do I really need half a bicycle inner tube and window locks for a type of window we haven't got? Still the Waxoyl spray gun I last used in 1988 might come in handy... and about forty old power supplies (well each one is a different voltage/current)...

Did decide to lose one of my stock of parallel cables but I think serial ones need to be kept.

Finally got rid of the last four of a stock of hacksaw blades that snap if you look at them. Enough tap washers to fit out Bath.

What gets me is almost everything I find was kept with a purpose in mind, but at 53, even a good long innings isn't going to be enough to finish all the projects I have actually started :-0

I still have bits from a ten year old motorbike I owned in 1983 - and some of that epoxy resin that used to come in two parallel strips of plastecene that you rubbed together to get a chemical reaction that probably gave you skin cancer.

You never know! :lol:
