I have three pairs, £20 per pair which I will donate to the local hospice. I will stand the P&P, but I need to sell them in pairs as I can keep two below 2kg, but can't easily keep one below Ikg. P&P is prohibitive, otherwise. I was given them and promised the lady I would get some money for them and donate it - her husband died after amputations and diabetic complications, so it is too close to me for comfort.
Very tiny hairline cracks as would be expected, but otherwise in vgc.

I'll have a pair Phil. let me know the payment details
And a pair for me, please. Been looking for a bit but glad to find them where (a) I can be sure it is LV and (b) the sum goes to a good cause. PM me your email for PayPal?

best, Keith
I did wonder how long these would take to go (I picked them up only 20 mins before I posted) - I've kept my eye open for one for years. I've just rung the lady and told her I'd sold £60's worth and would give the money to St. Julia's Hospice in Hayle - I think she was nearly in tears.
I'd be very happy to put £20 to a good cause if there are any more reasonable pairs available.

You have first dibs on this pair for £20 - one is part turned (who knows why?) but it is plenty large enough for a mallet, and the hole is small so can be re bored to what size you wish. The other piece is 200mm x 75mm which would probably make two nice round smaller mallet heads. That'll be the last of them - I mis counted and thought I had a couple more.

Thanks everyone. I got caught for a fee of £6.83 on a charity donation. Unbelievable.
There's always someone making their cut isn't there :|

Ludicrous that there's a fee on charitable payments.
cool, will let you know when it gets here. Wonder who'll get 'em first?
Some while ago I bought at the market two 2MT Dormer drill bits, 15/16" and 1 1/16" both unused, for a tenner. I thought they might be useful one day - I think the one day might have come, I wouldn't particularly like to have to drill these with an auger.
LOL at the moment all I have access to is a 9" long pump drill and a 6" Archemides drill max size of bit for both 3mm.

:lol: :lol: It's going to be a long job, from personal experience they can be dammed hard.

No promises but if anyone else is desperate I might be able to get my hands on a couple of spare bowls, they might not be available now and he's away until next week so won't know for a few days.
