Working on old gear is the biggest part of the hobby for me. I enjoy my bench time. Finishing my workshop was part of my bucket list after my retirement. I've done a lot of homebrewing in the past, these days I enjoy working on my boat anchors, vintage radios and various other projects. I can still muscle the BW-5100 transmitter and the other heavy beasts between the operating positions and the workbench when I have too. I will rue the day when I can't do this work due lack of strength or poorer eyesight.
