Anyone collect bits?

Hi everyone!
This is kind of a spin off of kevinshorses' thread on antique bits.

My question is do you collect bits? Not for actual using purposes, but just for the fun of it?

I've never actually thought about taking up such a hobby. I fear it is going to be both addictive and expensive!
Any pointers in collecting bits? Such as spotting fakes?

Or for the most part, where to start collecting?

Thanks for reading! :)

Talk to jimbits.... :)

I'm a tackaholic so I have a lot of bits for actual use (Although ot many actually get used, lol) but I don't know anything about collecting antiques of decorative bits.

^^I'm much the same way, Sorrel. I have a ton of bits that are either currently being used or have been used at some point in recent history, but as for collecting antiques, I really wouldn't know a collectible if it walked up and slapped me. LOL.

I can look and say "Yep, looks old" or "Yep, looks old and expensive", but that's about the extent of it.

I have a collection of about 400 bits! All these have been given to me, or bought at sales. There are about 50 hanging up in the tackroom that occasionally get used but most are in a trunk in the attic.

Yep last time someone set about counting them they got fed up when they got to 400!

I like to kid myself and appease my wife by saying "you never know when it might come in handy"
