    Smile Repurposing, reusing, restoring, scraping and markets

    Some years ago,selling scrap iron from my former building company,I found out that people throw away valuable things for many reasons.Some of the reasons are renewing them,some are considered out fashioned or simply making place for new stuff.Many of them are in such a good shape that deserve to be restored for different purposes.On scrap yards are more "products" then in a DIY store and sometimes more qualitative (in the past things were produced with paying more attention to quality than today).My first restoration,about four years ago,was an oven for our Summer kitchen which cost me aprox. 10 euros,twelve times cheaper than the cheapest oven on the market and from that one I was "contaminated with the virus" of saving things from total destruction because:
    1-are to valuable;
    2-avoid wasting huge amount of energy for recycling and
    3-with some skills there could be repurposed,reused and restored,which i better than recovering,recycling and reusing (see 2).

    On the other hand at flea and popular markets anyone can find valuable and interesting things,even things that brings memories from everyone childhood or from past beautiful times.

    From Russian marshes one Stalinets S65 and one T 34

    Stalinets S65
    "The S-65 tractor or Stalinets S-65 was a very popular agricultural tractor built by the Chelyabinsk Tractor Factory (Chelyabinskii Traktornyi Zavod – ChTZ) from 1937 until 1941. These tractors were used in military service as they were widely available and capable of towing heavy guns."

    Recovered from marsh,an unfinished but functional ISU-152 Zveroboy

    ISU-152 Zveroboy
    "The ISU-152 is a Soviet self-propelled gun developed and used during World War II. It was unofficially nicknamed zveroboy (Russian: Зверобой; "beast killer")[1] in response to several large German tanks and guns coming into service, including Tigers and Panthers. Since the ISU-152's was mounted in a casemate, aiming it was awkward, and had to be done by repositioning the entire vehicle using the tracks. Therefore, it was used as mobile artillery to support more mobile infantry and armor attacks. It continued service into the 1970s and was used in several campaigns and countries."
