Where to buy used tools?

Hi Chaps,

I'm currently searching for a Dickson T2T toolpost and holders and don't really know where to look. Best place so far is the Home Workshop site but there's nothing going at the moment. Ebay is either knock-off stuff, broken or silly prices or all three. Gumtree goes "What!!!! never heard of it" and preloved is mainly girly stuff.

What are your favourite haunts when searching for machinery?

Cheers





You'd be surprised how quickly the sales people at B&Q try and assist you after ignoring you for the past 15 minutes when you try and start a chainsaw

Thanks for the heads up Mike.

Emailed Bede they may come up with something and Obzolete are more into the small stuff.

cheers

Thanks, Pauld I use these guys too for cheap new stuff but can't afford new prices of Dickson quality and the Indian copies are not good. Ta for the heads up.

Cheers
