All you need to be an inventor is a good imagination and a pile of junk.
Junk is something you keep for years and throw away just before you need it. 'Me'
I'm often asked “Where did you get all that stuff?”
“Who gave you....”, “Why do you keep....” & “When are you getting rid of.... all that stuff?”
Since the 60's I've amassed a fair number of “goodies” for projects, although my wife has her own, and very different, favorite names for my “treasures”. But with too many of some things, some I'll never use and no space to allow me to continue collecting more “goodies” that I may need someday, it's time to share and sell some of my collection as simply trashing & creating more landfill with items others can use and may be desperately searching for should be a crime, especially now with the internet that makes it so easy to find those that may need and be searching for such items. One of my first sales was to someone in Australia that wrote “I have been looking for this item for nearly 2 years” and, soon after that, another wrote to say “You have no idea how long I have been looking for this item”.

I began selling my treasures in June of 2002 which have now been shipped to 29 countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay & the United States.
Many amateur radio operators look forward to working (making radio contact with someone in) all provinces, states and/or countries, but I find all the places I've shipped items to interesting and look forward to perhaps someday being able to say that I've shipped items to all Canadian Provinces ( 10 of 13 so far ) and/or all States ( 46 of 51 so far ).
I have met many interesting individuals and made new friends selling items and it has been interesting to receive photos and learn where some of my treasured items have ended up being used and plan to share some of these photos and stories on a web page eventually. I appreciate all feedback, even if just a quick reply as to when a shipment was received as I keep a record of all shipments and it's nice to be able to let others know what shipments times have been. Following is some of the feedback received.
Great packaging. I'm very pleased. I can tell you're a good and honorable man.
All arrived safe and sound! Michael Boudreaux - Victoria, Australia

Your packing job was excellent and everything was received in perfect condition. I will let you know how it works out when I get it installed in a 1929 Philco radio. Dan Klaassen - Marion, Iowa
Brilliant packing job, Barry. Of course everything survived the trip. You probably could have put the package in a large catapult - or on a medium-range missile - and it still would have been received fine.
Compliments on the packing, a real professional job. Thanks for the prompt and efficient service.
I received your shipment in excellent condition. Thanks for your patience and time.

The micros arrived yesterday and I have to agree to all the others and must say ....
That was the best packing job that I have ever seen.

I have done a lot of buying DIY parts all over the world, but I have never seen anything packed as well
