Throw them in a box until a smaller part is needed.
Guilty of keeping 90% of my scrap. I'm not sure if it's an OCD thing or I'm just being paranoid about future repairs, but it all goes into a box.
When the box gets full, some of it becomes woodstove kindling and I'll start over again. The true "keeper" stuff for me is ebony and anything that's particularly pretty!
Thank you for the replies! At least I know Im not crazy when I approach the local guys to me- Thank you again!
I keep everything on the premise that you never know when it will come in handy.
Back to the "firewood kindling" thing for a sec.... it's getting chilly in NW Oregon so we had a woodstove fire last night.
I used a handful or two of shop scraps to get it going and, as I put each piece in, it was fun to reminisce where each one came-from! "Oh, this was the cracked bracing from the Yamaha"... etc.
Ah, yes... it's truly the little things :)
