    When your trying to create piles of junk I keep hearing you guys talk about going to the spare parts bin,maybe I haven't built enough things but my bin has mighty slim pickings where do you get them from. I got the post the other day about the lighter and using old watches any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.:D Remember the coffers are not to full so cheap stuff would be best.

    Just tear apart anything that ypu're going to throw away - ball pont pens, burnt-out light bulbs, broken calculators, whatever. Keep any bits and pieces that show promise (even if you don't have a clue at the time what it might be used for!) You have a junk pile that will be the envy of the neighborhood in no time.
