Isn't there a HAM-group in York ?


Ah ha, yes - http://www.radioclubs.net/yorkars/contact.php

I'll get on to them.

Thanks for your help everyone. Simpson_jr - the Philips museum was a great idea.

It's very cool when you can find someone who appreciates junk that you don't want.

Some years ago, we had a large oak tree fall on our house.  Insurance covered removing the tree from the house, but not actually carting away the pieces.  So I asked (free firewood?) and someone suggested I contact the "East Bay Wood Turners group", or something like that.  These are guys who like to chuck a big chunk of wood in a big lathe, and end up with a bowl or something.  It worked great: early in the morning, about half a dozen old guys with chain saws and trailers showed up an carted away most of the tree; all the while chortling about what a lucky find it was (large chunks of oak normally being rather rare and expensive, apparently.)  It lent an interesting perspective to the whole event.

Encouraged by the high cost of energy at the moment wood burning stoves are a real trend over here (uk). We had to cut down a dead cherry tree in the front garden and about 3 people offered to take the wood away to burn.

We have an open fire, so the answer was 'sorry no'.

Lets hope we are moving into an age of efficiency and re-use!

Yeah Oak is expensive :D

Most places seem to have a local freecycle group now (freecycle.org) which is great for getting rid of stuff and sometimes getting stuff.
