    So I thought this could be fun; outside of fitness related pursuits, what does everyone here collect, make, build, create, do etc?


    I collect and restore/ refurbish old things I couldn't possibly afford to buy in restored shape.( old pop/soda machines, jukeboxes etc etc.

    This is an Old wall-box that would have sat on a tabletop in a bar/ diner and it was the " remote" to the actual jukebox that would have been across the room in the corner. Made from metal and glass its basically like working on a mini car( body filler prime paint etc. Only thing left is to get the front plate re-chromed as I don't have vats of chroming chemicals just kicking around in the garage. So what do you like to do/ collect/make etc, Its Show and tell time. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, it's interesting! I always wanted to restore/build an old car from 1930s, i.e. Nazi BMW. I hope I'll be able to afford it when I be on retirement.

    I suppose one could start a business, But I'm more into the fun of the project and having something I normally wouldn't buy due to high prices.
