Perhaps the forum rules should be revised ? What is wrong with swapping - should be encouraged imho.

Mods? - How about a 'swap' board as well as for sale/wanted?

Agreed - or better yet, just relax the forum rules!

There have been For Sale items where the seller has offered to swap for something else. Alternatively you could put a For Sale post and a Wanted post.

Mods moderate.
We don't write the rules we merely try and apply them to keep the place running efficiently. Any adjustment to the rules should be addressed to admin in the form of Charley.

Try ebay. It's got a feedback system that allows you to browse sellers history. If you pay via paypal you're also covered should anything go wrong.

Interesting that a newbie comes in and "complains" about the for sale rules :-k
They've worked pretty well for years and there are plenty of other places to sell and buy for those who don't like them

You're getting a tool, the seller gets money- sounds like a decent swap to me :lol:
