Like a lot of collectors, we tend to hoard spare parts for our machines. You never know when you'll need a particular spare part, and sometimes you hang on to it in case you never have the opportunity to buy it again! However, it's a bad habit that we are trying to break. Hoarding parts keeps them out of circulation, potentially making it difficult for others to return non-machines back to operation. Plus, keeping boxes of spare parts squirrelled away in boxes forever makes for a messy workshop!
Parts that are surplus to our needs, unnecessary for maintenance of our own machines, or simply better off in the hands of others, are listed for sale here.
