I thought the protocol on here was not to flag up active ebay listings.

It used to be, anyway. I guess things have changed.

I thought so too, but was corrected in no uncertain terms when I passed comment once before.

I have to say that I would not be too pleased if I were watching an eBay listing and then it was posted here generating more interest than necessary. :evil:

Morning James

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

I think people who make a habit of doing it get their posts edited.

Cheers

I'm sorry guys I can remove it if that's the best thing.
Sorry James, was in a bad mood.

It is an interesting post and you are right, is it just another sign of the economic downturn?

I always took it to mean that you didn't put up posts of your own stuff or that family\friends\etc. but it was perfectly fine to post up one belonging to someone unknown, where you felt the item\s would be of interest to folk here.

Even the 8.1. of the rules doesn't say otherwise. If it does - can a mod confirm please?

Looking at the item\s again - I do like the tenon saw where the lower part of the handle isn't there - if that makes sense. But considering how many vintage handsaws I have, better leave these alone. :roll:

Besides even tho Lancs is the next county on - almost quicker to get to Brum than Blackpool.

Up the proverbial creek
Back when I was moderating I believe we used to implement a policy of no Ebay auction links until complete, just to avoid the potential for ill-feeling. It's the safest way, and a rule a lot of fora and mailing lists observe. Might be worth asking for some clarification on the matter with the current mod team.

Dibs, when the lower part of the handle isn't there generally it's just called "open handled" or sometimes "pistol grip". Some rather nice handles amongst that lot akshully, but luckily, like you, I am both geographically and spatially challenged and thus safe from temptation. :D

Cheers for the terminology. Yes some nice handles amongst that lot - just looked up on Google maps - 70 mile one way, which would mean a 3 hour trip there and back - whilst mightily tempted, better keep my hands in my pockets and not bid.

Already spent a not so small sum on handtools in the last 2 weeks. :oops:
