You're right, gdubois...But, spending where it counts on things like supplies, cleaners and accessories will come in handy and is par for the course when finding electronics like this...I understand the hoarding problem, but as long as you keep things in check and make the hobby fun, it's OK...When it's not fun anymore, that's when you've got a problem! Still, it's better than junking these things for the landfill...And if you don't have time for the TT's, please give or sell them to someone who does, rather than throw them away! By the way, I want to know what good gear you've been finding at estate sales!!
What have you missed out on? I have a thread for that, too!viewtopic.php?f=18&t=91628
Just remember, a clean garage is a much better place to work on projects than a cluttered one...It may take time, but the process is worth it in the end!
