I love the so called junkin. I have shopped at thrift stores for years and just recently found sites like junk market style which gave validation to my hobby.
To me, the older and rustier the better. Love gears and how they work. The prettiest part of a clock is the insides!!
Mixing the old with the new and finding a purpose for an outdated item is all the challenge I need these days. If it is too expensive, I will find a way to make it.
