Thrift shops, antique shops, knick-knack shops-no matter what you call them in your area, they are usually filled with “another person’s treasure.” Usually, we go home empty-handed, hoping that another store has something we can’t live without.But in rare cases, when everything is in our favor, we will find real gems, even though we don’t know what we are going to do with them, it’s just Have Come home with us.

We appreciate his analytical method of meshing old universal joints and potentiometers with new radio equipment. Not to mention the cost of using the parts in his combat robot box to put Omnibot back into service. You will also like the attention to detail of the new battery!
