I look at a lot of the posts here and most people are aiming for new gear or upgrades, this is understandable but I am heading the other way. Here are my 3 new toys I purchased today at Vinnies where I volunteer. 1/ A Canon AE-1 program 35mm film camera. It needs the mirror buffer pads replace, no big issue, put a battery in it and it works fine. 2/ Minolta X300 35mm film camera, need to get some batteries to test it out. 3/ Renette 35mm camera, lens needs stripping and re lubricating. No big issue as I have done this on a similar camera. 4/ Hanimar 400mm with a M42 mount. This I got last week and have since stripped the glass elements out and cleaned the small amount of fungus off of them. Unlike the modern Canon EOS 400mm lenses, this one strips down to 10 parts and is easy to re-assemble. I have a spare M42 to EOS adapter and it works fine, I had a quick try with it this-morning. Due to them requiring maintenance and cleaning, they were quite cheap.
