Default What's in your boneyard?

Some of this stuff has been rescued from the Millburn NJ Town Dump, other stuff was listed in the wrong category on EBay, some purchased at Hamfests in NJ -- so what's in you shelf of uncompleted "fixer-uppers". I particularly like the "Voice of Music" Console AM-FM radio/amplifier as my parents had a similar unit at the beginning of time:

Why, silly hare, are you fleeing from the fierce jaws of the lion now grown tame?

In the last couple of weeks, I've scored a Playmaster 25/25 Amp + Playmaster graphic equaliser, both somebodys (Electronics Australia - Dick Smith) kits that need fixing,
an AWA tuner-amp which I'm now using at work,
and a 'portable' HMV valve gramophone that dates from the early 60s.

Side of the road - my favourite place to shop :-)

I got an old JVC cd4 4 channel receiver that's really dirty and scritches out of one channel even after it's turned off; A naked dual 1214 table that doesn't know whether it wants to go or stop; A real nice dual 1219 table waiting for a stylus or cart, a Kenwood "rock" kd-2055 table that was in daily service, but just caught a bad hum; A japanese Pioneer mixing (karaoke) amp with no output that took me three days of translating just to make sure I was plugging in to the right spots, and a Kenwood and Yamaha receiver undergoing occasional use to make sure they are ready for the big upcoming purge. Also, I'm finally getting around to hollowing out some big speakers for use as record shelves. I'm sure I'm missing something...
