Just remember, he day AFTER you bin them, is the day you will get a job where you could use them.

 

Are you really so short of space you can't just keep them?

Do you want some of mine? Still got about 30 or 40 odd. I know a bloke who buys them for 50p each, not worth the hassle of postage tbh.

Dave , I've given them a home for 25 years ,  I suffer from the  " That'll come in useful one day " syndrome   and the  "   I might need one of these one day "   .

I think it comes from growing up in an age when we had sod all ,  when the only way you'd have a bike  would be to put one together from  handed down bits & pieces. 

 

When I had a transit sized van , the amount of stuff we had in it was crazy ...all there just in case .    When  Bob the Breakdown got pulled for overloading  his van  we had a clear out .....stuff like  20mm Galvo H boxes  & Y boxes .... three boxes of Crampetts ,  the apprentice  said "What the hell are these ?" 

I think after the Great Clearout  the MPG went up by 20  :o

I am pretty sure I have a pack of those for some reason. Think these were triple gang ones.

What about clearing out your stock of lead sheathed cable, or are you keeping that for a job you have lined up?

It does look like they will make a comeback  Kerch .  TBH I don't really have any , in fact never used them .     However if you ever need a 3 gang wooden patttress ,  Lurch has cornered the market .  

 

Doc:   I'm giving up on using the lead sheathed cables now ,  not a mention of them the the 18th as yet.

I have no idea what trade the above posters are in, wooden pattresses, stablocks, buckle clips, they must be carpenters or something. I assume these are things you need to hang a door.
