Offers  and  Requests
Request: IBC container(s) (llandrindod wells) - One or two clean IBCs (intermediate bulk containers, the metre-cubed plastic tanks in a metal frame used for water, chemicals, etc. transport), for experiment with rainwater capture in Llandrindod Community Orchard. Appearance not important nor minor damage to the frame, as long as it is leak-proof and free of any toxic residues. Reposting again as we'd like to move forward with the project and I also wrongly described before them as Universal BCs. Offer: Wooden deckchair (Llanbister) Gifted - Must go soon: Fairly large, traditional style folding deckchair with arms and green & white fabric. In fair condition but needs cleaning up (been in neighbour's garage unused for long time).

Maybe suit utility room, workshop, etc. Should be installed by a competent person. Offer: Small dog cage (Llanbister) - Needs to go soon. Folds up. Suit cocker spaniel sort of size.

Offer: Colour enlarger (Llanbister) Gifted - Philips PCS 2000 colour photographic enlarger with various controls and devices, plus a couple of other small items of photographic equipment. Unused for many years, needs a clean. This is a serious bit of kit for a knowledgeable (or learning) old-school chemical photographer/hobbyist. Fair offer policy.
Offer: Comb binder & combs (Llanbister) Gifted - Comb binder and plenty of various combs.
Offer: Exercise bike (Llanbister) Gifted - Substantial 'Sven Sports' exercise bike, with various electronic displays. Needs cleaning up (been in neighbour's garage unused for long time). Offered 'as is', not been tested (that would mean exercising...).
Offer: Suspended file trolley (Llanbister) Gifted - Pretty good condition. Hanging width 14.5 inches/37 cm (foolscap?). No files with it but might suit whoever took the large quantity recently offered by someone on Trash Nothing!
Offer: Wooden deckchair (Llanbister) Gifted - Fairly large, traditional style folding deckchair with arms and green & white fabric. In fair condition but needs cleaning up (been in neighbour's garage unused for long time). Offer: Gas barbecue (Llanbister) Gifted - BBQ with grill pan, 'coals' and gas bottle (probably empty). Needs cleaning up (been in neighbour's garage unused for long time) but with a coat of heatproof paint could look quite good. Offered 'as seen'.
Offer: Compact dishwasher (llandrindod wells) Gifted - Zanussi dishwasher, 450mm wide rather than standard 600mm. Quite old and not used for 2/3 years but was working OK. Offer: VAX vacuum cleaner (llandrindod wells) Gifted - Vax 121. Good condition except suction seems reduced. OK at motor but probably needs new cloth filter. I have tried a couple of types of material but don't think they were porous enough for sufficient air flow. You could either experiment or try to track down an original replacement. Plenty of spare disposable dust-bags included. Note: this machine is 'dry' only - does not have the 'wet' accessories.
Request: UBC container(s) (llandrindod wells) Withdrawn - One or two clean UBCs (universal bulk containers, the metre-cubed plastic tanks in a metal frame used for water, chemicals, etc. transport), for experiment with rainwater capture in Llandrindod Community Orchard. Appearance not important nor minor damage to the frame, as long as it is leak-proof and free of any toxic residues. Reposting this in hope... Offer: Model yacht (Llanbister) Gifted - Incomplete model yacht, 24 inches long and 14 from deck to bottom of keel. Evidently intended for radio control: has servo intended to move sails and a box of other electrics. I do not know anything more about it, other than that it was built by a keen modeller, now sadly deceased. Great project if you are interested in model boats.
Request: Horn speaker/s (Llanbister) Received - Does anyone have one or two smallish horn (or other fairly weatherproof) loudspeakers? To extend the cover of a small PA system used for local events. The amp is about 50W output but the wattage and impedance not critical as can compensate in the wiring. Request: Electric hob (Llanbister) Received - Do you have any type of electric hob, standard size (approx 58 x 50cms) to fit in worktop? Appearance unimportant but must be working properly i.e. temperature controls fully operational. My old hob is failing beyond repair and I'm looking for a stop-gap while I look at permanent options, possibly going over to LPG.

Request: MIG welding stuff (Llanbister) Received - Mini-gas (CO2/Argon) cylinder regulator (with the small push-fit pipe connection to welder)? Mini-gas cylinder (CO2/Argon) - unused or part-used? Alternatively - regulator and/or cylinder for smaller refillable gas? Bit of a long shot, but perhaps you have upgraded your kit and these items are redundant! I am trying to see if can restore a long-disused old welder.

Offer: Cement board (Llanbister) Gifted - Still available - 2 sheets of 9mm / 3/8th inch cement fibre board, one sheet 1.8 x 1.2m, other 1.6 x 1.2. See photo. Originally used, I believe, to enclose an oil tank. I think they are an alternative fibre from looking at the edges, but I cannot guarantee that they do not contain asbestos. To be taken on this understanding. Quite heavy, probably need van, trailer or heavy duty roofrack.
Offer: Vax filters (Llanbister) - 2 vacuum cleaner filters for models shown on pack in photo. Consists of 1 conical paper filter and 1 rectangular foam filter. Was bought for my Vax 121 upright cylinder but was sent the wrong set and it was too much of a faff returning to the useless supplier! Does not include the small circular pre-motor filter, which was only item that did fit. These can easily be made yourself from a clean pan scourer!

Offer: Wall blocks (Llanbister) Gifted - Around 20 old, mainly rustic-finished concrete blocks. Most with mortar on as it is almost impossible to chisel off and many chipped or broken. Came from a collapsed garden wall. Offering before disposing in case anyone has use e.g. for a rockery or a really crude wall! Heavy. Requires collection.
Offer: Electric lawnmower (Llanbister) Gifted - Qualcast Concord 30 mains electric cylinder lawnmower with grass-box. Working, although very old (probably 20-25 years). Ideal for maintaining a small, level lawn with shortish grass.
