I seem to be collecting off cuts, of pretty much anything.
Wood of all kinds, even though I'm not a carpenter or even into wood work.
Metal even some engineering stock, though I no longer have a lathe or any machinery.
Tubing of all kinds?

I'm just glad it's not a hoarding issue.


So, where do you get these offcuts?

Is there a shop where you buy them? Friends and relatives make occasional contributions? Sneak around other peoples workshops and sheds in the dead of night?

Are there other offcut collectors?

A web site and forum at offcut-collectors.co.uk perhaps :shock:

It's all the stuff you keep just in case, but never use in case you need it later.

Sorry to thread resurrect, but that just nailed it completely for me! :lol: I've tried to not be like it, but then instantly needed whatever I've got rid of (obviously)...

My small collection of Leicas including a M3, double stroke with Summicron 5cm f/2 dual range; IIIC with Sumitar 5cm f/2; IIf with Xenon 5cm f1.5; 1a with Elmar 50mm f/3.5 and lastly a '50s era lighter that looks like a Leica.

Back to the future bits and bobs.

VW stuff air cooled models, and 1/18 VW models that get modified into drag cars.
