    They might have more success selling if it was dragged out into the light so an interested buyer could actually see the whole article!

    And maybe a nice certificate saying what it was off and what the proceeds were going to?

    If any one was interested in the deflector or any other of the modified parts I will be at Sellindge from the 22nd October or just to call in for a brew and chat.
    We hope to be moving 35011 to a new site next year and I am reluctant to waste money dragging parts around that have no use or value so they will be scrapped to offset the moving costs.

    Probably a bit large to be able to persuade my wife that it would be a nice coffee table sadly.

    I would buy it if I had the first inkling of an idea of what to use it for.

    Being a cheeky sod, if it has no value why are you asking £250 for it. ;)

    Seriously though, hope it sells for you and makes a good load of cash.

    I wonder when you cast a new middle cylinder if any group would consider buying the current cylinder off you. It would be a shame if you scrapped it and then someone needed one.
