    What is the best thing to do with old/broken parts?

    What do you guys do with old, worn-out or broken parts? Throw them out? keep them? What is the best way to dispose of old/ broken parts?

    Make a video of them and then trash them:



    If you have time to waste you can always keep them and try to repair them if you break the same parts in different places on them.

    Toss them. No way I will clutter my workbench with useless parts.

    I'm the guy that thinks: If the family hasn't used it in a year or two and it is lying around it ends up in a garage sale, Craigslist, Goodwill or the trash.

    For me, it depends on what broke and why.

    For parts that break due to a spectacular wreck or some such, I have a wall of awesomeness I'm making to hang them on. Others, I just toss in the trash.

    Wall is not populated enough, brb... :-)

    I have a 'Bag of Carnage' where I keep all my broken parts.
