Have someone photo everything and put on website
for others to sort through.
No organization... just photos

This is a really... Heavy? Important? Close?... Subject for me.

My Dad (passed 10 Feb 2003) has left me with a house in Oregon...  
Full to
the brim with... Stuff... Some of it may be worth something, most of  
what is
clearly worth something has been ebayed, but the rest is still...

Well, for example, there are all these radio tubes. Most are worth  
nothing,
I'm sure. But there are a few that may be valuable. The problem is  
figuring
out which ones are which. Just writing down all the part numbers to ebay
them as a batch would take more time that I can afford.

But I would feel really bad if I just trashed it and there were some  
rare,
one of a kind tube in there that was just what was needed to bring  
some old
system back to life... I don't know, does that make any sense?

So, are there any Hams in SW Oregon who like to have a look through  
it? I
have previously worked with people who ebayed items they knew to be  
of value
and split the sale with me.

And then there are the books, the tools, the speedo collection (more  
than 70
pair, don't ask) and goodness knows what else that needs to find a good
home.

And then I look in my garage and think of my kids...

I spend time on my web sites and that is what I will give them that  
won't
cost them anything. Just a DVD-ROM or so. The physical stuff needs to go
away.

Pickup unlabeled box with tube in it.

Open box, unpack tube. Some are in tissue paper, most just in the box.

Turn this way and that in the bright light until you can read the faintly
printed part number. Perhaps it would show up on the photograph, but I doubt
it.

Repack the tube, close the box.

Rinse, repeat.

Same with the books. You have to take each one down, photo, put it back. But
there are probably 200 or 300 books. Well, a lot of them have the title on
the spine so I guess it isn't that bad.

I tried to take pictures of them one year, but my camera was just not up to
the job. Most of the pictures of the property and machines are ok, but the
books and parts and tools are not sufficiently clear to be of use.

Let me know if you want to see them.

Okay ......   the stuff is doomed unless opened to the light of day.
Get a good MACRO camera for less than $200 or I will loan you one.
( PS my daughter lives in Oregon )
Take picture under very controlled lighting ( a room closed off from  
outside with
a location in it with very uniform light. )

Open box , lay part on neutral background, mark yellow stickie with  
sequential number ( 1, 2,3 ....)
  take picture of part number, or part in general and include  
stickie in photo.
put part back in box or on shelf or in bigger box  ( containing items  
345 thru 490 )
along with stickie stuck to part.

Wait for bid of $1,000,000 for original edison light bulb.

Did you trying turning on macro mode on your camera for the
closeup shots? Little flower symbol. Virtually all newer digital
cameras have it.
