I found a nicely-shaped bedside lamp base in the skip a few months ago but so far I have not found a use for it. Today I found another one! It’s difficult to express just how excited I am about this. You see any object can be used for robot bodies and heads but for arms, legs, hands and feet I need to find matching pairs of things. Most junk isn’t thrown away in pairs but all I can assume is that this lamp was in fashion a few years ago, was sold in some quantity, and is now going out of fashion so people are replacing them. Now I have two of them, I can use them as calves or muscular-looking forearms, which is something their bulbous shape will be perfect for. Watch out for them in my next robot.
