I bought a bag of assorted bottom bracket parts awhile back. Most of it was English Nottingham or Birmingham stuff - all useful, but nothing particularly special. In the bag also as a bottom bracket set covered in red house paint. I thought it might be Birmingham Hercules or Phillips based on the threading and shape, but after stripping the paint, it turned out to be a nice, blued Schwinn bottom bracket kit. I cleaned and oiled the Schwinn parts and put them in a separate bag. I can always use a stock of spares.
No bike stuff ( I think..sometimes it loose track )
I did score these awesome (slightly rare) 1950s Premier clear spaceman off FB for $15 on has some old clay/playdoh that seems to flake off..
