If you have 2 to do, then why don't you go and buy a set. I got mine (Laser branded) for 28.00 over the counter from my local spares shop. If you don't use them again, you could resell them and get most of your money back. It would be much quicker than waiting for some one on here to get theirs over to you.

Oh, thats a pain. I'm currently waiting on tools for my JTD from the same supplier. I have been meaning to get around to hassling as I need them for easter and there is a box of belts and shiny rollers etc staring at me in the garage.

Panic over (for me at least). My tools were waiting for me when I got home. Look to be nice quality as well.

I did chase him by means of checking out the name with Companies House, which isnt the trading name !!! If you look @ the address and contact details there is no name or contact number !!!

I NOW HAVE A CONTACT NUMBER AND NAME WHICH WILL BE POSTED HERE VERY VERY SOON IF THE TOOLS ARE NOT DELIVERED !!!

HE HAS ALSO PLACED A SPAM BLOCKER AGAINST MY EMAILS !!!

I think the tools are sold as a hobbie/sideline to his main job, so i suspect he may stock pile order and do the orders as a job lot...
