Hilmor pipe bender £250
Boss tower working height 8m £800
Van Vito high top 2010 reg long MOT £4000
I have put these on gumtree right now. As I am retiring next year. May still do little jobs but cutting out the bigger stuff. Happy to stop running all the time to keep up.
Think I might start doing what I always wanted to do which is making guitars in my garage. I know tomorrow is promised to no one but still making plans anyway in high hopes all will come into fruition. Will still be around the forum just for the craic. One last registration with the CPS and maybe one last 18th and that is me off the treadmill. Will keep you all posted.

You are not far wrong lol.
Various types of animals were used in making bagpipes, including dogs.

I really want to get a six seater family car in exchange for the van. Although I have modded it to make it a six seater I want a car for the family, so any ideas are welcome.

The pipe benders and tower have gone. May have a buyer for the van but there are a lot of time wasters aren't there so we will see.

I retired last year from sparkying, then realised I had bills to pay. So got myself a proper job :(

I’ve got some insulated fan ducting, several used drums of tw&e, huge box of assorted white faceplates, a box of MK mcb’s and a wade of intumescent padding? Van was sold to ‘We Buy Any Van’, good deal I had.

Garage is still full of junk, not as much as spinlondon’s mind (worried about him). Even the charity shops are picky these days.

Good luck @Vortigern, I’d go this year if I was you. Don’t tell me you sit in your garage strumming :)

Thanks for that. I tried we buy any van they offered a derisory £1k ish. That is maybe why you and @Bob Geldoff1234 pushed the optimistic button I imagine. Anyway a thing is worth what you can sell it for. So maybe PX it for something more suited to the family who knows. Potential buyer didn't turn up so we shall see.

Nope I got a good deal for my 2010 Ford Connect, expected £1800. got £3000. Jobs a gooden.
 
The garage I bought my new car from offered me £1000 px for my old car, We Buy Any Car offered me £1700 (subject to them seeing it). I sold it privately for £3200. If you don't need it gone tomorrow, AutoTrader wins every time!
