I take old/out of date thick catalogs and tape edges closed and use as props/supports for chassis on bench. They do not scratch or act as conductors. Now, how to find a storage spot for them.....

I take it that you have indoor plumbing, right? :wink:

That's a pretty good suggestion, though. They also make good door stoppers.

Do't the Hippies still roll each page together and create logs to burn in their fireplace and die of cancer before it by age 50? Guess they're all gone.

Also reckon outdoor plumbing is dead, but we used to know what to do with them then.

Wake up call, only generic catalog I get is Yellow Pages, which goes immediately into garbage. Are they serious?

Love the tech parts order catalogs, but frankly if I could save a dime on any part I wanted, I would give up the paper.

And from me, who used to peddle via mail order, that's a lot.

You could maybe save them for another 50 years to sell them on Ebay, as vintage collectibles....of course though, most of us won't be here anymore and I doubt if they have Ebay where we're going.
