Yes, there is that, particularly since he charged something like ukp50 just
to look at something (he does hi-fis, tv's and microwaves too) - the one
that closed down was half his costs which is why I used them more.

that may have a Big Box of old spares they keep just for people like me to
wander in and rifle through :)
