Re: Does anybody ever buy and sell?

I thought "how hard can this be?" Wow, what a minefield. Don't take this as gospel, but this was the closest I could find. (Remember that 20% VAT is added to the sum of what you paid for the machine, plus shipping, plus duty (if any) and there is probably also going to be a handling fee charged by H...

Re: Don’t let go

I gave up on buying bandits after the tenth one so, whilst I plan to someday (perhaps) move on four of them there is one that I will always keep: a Sega Continental.

Re: More bloody stupid ebay rules

Re: Thruppeny bits

£2 coin. Did you know the Royal Mint still makes a small number of thruppences? Something to do with them being needed as part of Maundy Money sets. Once we get through this Brexit business, maybe we can have a referendum on returning to a currency based on £-s-d? That will challenge the digital gen...

Re: Mills wing nut gone missing

Re: What screw size was used for the Mills Escalator

I wasn't recommending it, Paul. Merely confirming that these things are out there and offering it as an example of one such product. At the other end of the scale, there is also a product costing less than £8. It is highly rated in the reviews, but looks a bit flimsy....
