Tools & Parts (Small tooling)
Time is marching on and I MUST clear my late fathers workshop with some urgency! So I have decided to have an engineering yard sale. There is just too much to sell to advertise individual items and so a yard sale seems to be one way of moving a considerable amount of stuff in a short time!

do I need to go on?????

Well there is just one or rather two other things - bit of a long shot, but I have a pair of 6 x 3 metre eazy up type gazebos. These are seriously heavy duty & made in the UK by Gala Tent - the dogs doodahs when it comes to this type of thing. They are Pro Shade 50s with white canopies and white walls. They were purchased for a one off event in August and now they have to go. Just to put things into perspective the pair of them cost £1800 - these are not £100 jobbies from the garden centre!

Everything is sold as seen

Ideally purchases are cleared on the day (except maybe the monumentally sized work bench which may have to be one of the last things to go) It may be possible to come back in the following week to collect that unexpected purchase that won't go in the car ;o) Just so long as it is paid for in advance!

I will not entertain sending anything to anyone be it by post, courier or pigeon. YOU take it away!

You WILL be required to mask up

I will lay on tea and coffee!
