Moving stock

I've been wanting to run down the tool business for some time and devote time to other projects. I have literally tons of whitworth,BSF,BA and AF tools to clear out and have been working out the best ways to do so.Ebids auction site is really a waste of time and Ebay is not the force it was,I suppose I could try the 'normal' auction route but without lots of advertising the audience will probably not have the faintest idea of what they're looking at and the prices the tools will fetch wont be much higher than scrap value.To buy some of the really big spanners now would cost a fortune but the demand simply isn't there and people are far more inclined to buy cheap chinese and indian tools than stuff made to a standard and not to a price.

Lowestofts Rubbish

The council must have been well over a hundred times to the alley close to me to collect bags of household rubbish left there by the occupier of one of the tatty flats on the corner. They know who dumps it,who the landlord is yet chose to do absolutley nothing about it.
I bet if I threw my rubbish out on the street they'd be down on me like a ton of bricks.
They can fart about fining people for putting the bins out a day early yet ignore some tosser littering the place on a daily basis
No wonder Lowestoft is such a filthy place.

Trying to save a bit of Lowestofts heritage.

There is a large ex department store known as "The old Tuttles building" in lowestoft that has survived fires,two world wars and lead thieves on the roof.Its owners seem determined to let it fall into a derelict state.
A petition has been launched to stop this building which is of historic importance being allowed to simply fall down through neglect.
The petition is here.Save the Tuttles bulding.
