Saw this on "a well known auction site" today. I don't think I would like to use it for the purpose it's being sold as :shock:

If anyone out there buys it, let me know how you get on :wink:

Well seen!

I have sent a message to the seller to warn them of the possible consequences of misinformation. I can only hope that they act upon the message!

regards Peter.

I had already sent him a message about the dresser and have had a reply saying that he is not a very experienced turner (?) and that he can't either stop the sale or change the details I don't if that is correct or not? He thanked me for pointing it out..

My favorite is the "Maple double sided woodturning chisel" for £14.99. I'm sure you can get the boxed set for a tener

Well, you can revise your listing at any time so I think his answer about not being able to is suspect. Perhaps he doesn't know how too.

I have received the same response, hopefully he will read the instructions and cancel his entry.

I have done so before now, I can only assume that he really does not know quite what he is doing!

Regards Peter.
