More Features

Well we have more features,

  1. Use correct sentience formatting rules, a space after the colon: semi-colon; comma, full stop. and exclamation! characters. URL address will use words with dots between the words without spaces and if the system sees these it will treat them as URL links. So please use the preview, it allows you access to the edit button, to change the mistakes otherwise the adverts will just be removed.
  2. NEW! logo after 10 years the tread board needed repainting, if any remember the old Green text logo might remember how the tread patten ended up becoming the background. The photos have also been upgraded to add logo's and date/time stamps to the images on upload so that the photos are noticeable for people linking to them.
  3. Enjoy your use of the site, stay safe, keep to social distance if you are visiting colleagues to pick up a new toy.
  4. A new guide on the form submission page has been added to help people avoid mistakes they get their advert removed, we are sorry that some adverts are lost due to this but if people do not read, we cannot guide them.


Want to help us fund the site and time spent by the people behind it then use the button below.

We are not a registered charity so you can't claim it back but it helps pay for the costs of running the site and improving the features.

You can also help by looking at the advert on the side menus as we get paid for these BUT please only look at adverts you are interested in, you never know you might find something you never knew existed.

Submission form guide

A guide on using the submission form.

  • What you see in the text box for the advert description is not what the system will just display. Our system has some automated formatting features that it will carry out after the form has been submitted. When you have completed filling in the form and click on the preview button, please preview the advert otherwise the moderators will see the advert for their approval and just hit the dump button if it is not relevant or correctly formatted for our site.
  • Selecting the correct type of classification of the items you are advertising will help moderators determine if it is relevant.
  • When selling include the best options for how you would like to distribute the item, depending on the option selected you should ensure that you fill in the relative fields for the prices. The anti-spam system will delete adverts in which these fields are filled in but the options are not selected or if they are selected the price is left blank.
  • All price fields have the option of showing 0 as free or -1 as multiple, if using multiple ensure to include the prices in the main description text field.
  • Standard HTML codes will be removed from the text but there are some additional hypertext that the system will convert them for you.
    • Use ** at the beginning and end of the text you would like to be in bold.
    • Use -- at the beginning of and of the text you want to be in italics.
    • Use __ at the beginning and end of the text you want to be underlined.
    You can use combinations to give an effect to the text you put into your advert. The hypertext will work across multiple lines but will terminate at the end of the text. Abuse of this system will result in your advert being removed.
  • Web URL links will automatically be converted into highlighted text but will not be immediately clickable and must be copied to a person's browser. The automated system will look for words that are only separated by a full stop, missing spaces can result in words being converted into a link by accident so always ensure you have added a space between sentence words and at the start of the sentence.
  • When including photos in your advert the system will attempt to resize the four images you can upload, if the system then only shows white blank page it was unable to handle that image(s). If you need to resubmit the advert please first manually resize or convert the images in a application. The site is only able to handle basic JPEG, GIF or PNG but is unable to handle animations, subchannel or progressive file types.
  • You can use horizontal lines to break up the multiple items within the advert but will not allow you to use the HTML code to do so. To insert a horizontal line just put on a new line only five . - + or _characters.
  • Do not use blank lines to break up the text as the system will automatically add a paragraph break between them for you.
  • The system will not allow you to put email addresses into the text description so please do not try to circumvent the system whilst trying to give it an informative advert about scammers. You automatically give the site permission to use your email address which converts to an image to make it harder for bots to read them but we cannot distribute other people's email addresses of which permission has not been given. They are some forums out there on the web in the model engineering area that will allow you to do this so please use them.
  • Above all please be courteous to the other users of the site.
