Many thanks, Mike Offer: Railway sleepers - NOW GONE (Staplegrove (TA2)) Gifted - Many thanks for the very many who asked for these. Regrettably they're going to a new home this Saturday and even if I'm let down, there also a short queue of a few more people. Many thankls to you all Offer: Railway sleepers (Staplegrove (TA2)) - I have 8 full size railway sleepers that were used as the edge of raised vegetable beds. Despite that they're in pretty good condition and if you want them then just ask. You'll need a substantial vehicle or trailer to shift them and at least 2 people to load them. Vehicle access is good. Request: Log splitter (Staplegrove (Staplegrove (TA2)) - Looking for a log splitter.

I use the old fashioned incandescent lamps as heaters in a wood drying kiln. They're very effective but they don't last forever and I'm now down to my last 2 40W candle lamps. Ideally I would like a few of the old 100W that we all had for our main room lighting. If anyone has a few still (60W or 100W or even 150W) and would be happy to give them away I'll be delighted to take them and use them. Probably not practical to make a visit for just one but I will make the effort for 2 or more.

Before scraping around to buy a bigger monitor than my 17", I thought I'd ask around.

Cheers Mike Offer: Epson printer (Staplegrove (TA2)) Gifted - I'm upgrading my setup to do some graphic work from home and my old Epson printer isn't up to the job in so many ways that it was easier to replace it.
