I've been tidying up my servo collection as you might have gathered from my recent article on servo lugs and I've come across a load of old arms and discs .The large circular type , the small circular ones ,the large four cross and small six cross arms .
I hate to throw anything away but as yet over the years have found no practical alternative use for them .
Any suggestions ?

Ha ha, Like you I have millions of the damned things and like you I have yet to find a use. Sometimes they make horns, I have even used them as catches to repair spring-open doors on flip-bins and things, but realistically they are rubbish to be discarded. Pity really, but I guess they have one use and one use only.

Haha! I have loads of the same ones too! Can't bear to throw them out either.

Glow motor throttle arms can get mangled, and the holes can become oversized, and servo arms can be used to replace these, also, I have made various sizes of "quick link" from them, as anchor points on fuselage to attach wing struts quickly, that will detach on cartwheeling.

I never seem to have enough 4 arm Futaba fitting ones so feel free to post them to me! Discs - I guess someone somewhere must use them, but I'd rather have a spare 4 arm horn in the packet.
What I do have are dozens of arms for various micro servos and no idea which servos they fit.

|Indeed. I wish "they" would agree a standard spline diameter. Loads of micro arms, never fit anything !|

This might help putting the bits in order

The discs can be used as reinforcement for nylon wing bolt heads.
