  1. Thanks, I'll look him up. Tom.
  2. I need an adapter fitting made that attaches a M9x1 thread to an M14x1 thread. Does anyone know a machine shop that will take the time of day to make a one-off component, anywhere in the UK? See attachment for the spec. Tom.

    Chopping my sim card to make a nano, it it too old?

    In this day and age can they transfer a bog standard, pay as you go type number/account to a new sim? Back in the day they couldn't, but now? Tom.
  4. Just wanted to check, with anyone in the know, whether I am safe to go ahead and chop my sim card and make it into a nano sim? My concern is, that since it is more than ten years old then the chip and/or internal connecting wires might be more exposed towards the edges. My sim, below. Tom.

    Paypal transfer fees within the EU?

    Thanks gents. Jal3, funnily enough, Tranferwise rang a bell and I checked my signed ups and I am with them, did a transfer last year. Thanks for reminding me. Yeah, screw Paypal! Cheers, Tom.

    Paypal transfer fees within the EU?

    While I'm trying to converse with Paypal which is the long winded way I thought I'd ask here. I want to transfer a sum from my primary Paypal account, to which my Italian current account is registered, to my secondary PP account which has my UK Halifax current account as the bank account. I want to do the transfer as friends and family, which it is, but when I get past that option it says it is going to charge me for the transfer even though is says it is free within the EU. Is it only free when the transfer is within an EU country but once it goes cross border, within the EU, it is then subject to a fee? Not very clear. Tom.
  7. Do those ELM327/OBDII gadgets allow the for the reading of ECU mileage? Tom.
  8. Is it possible to find out the true mileage of a car by doing a more in-depth analysis of the vehicle? I've been reading that the vehicle ECU can be read and will be more or less accurate to what is displayed on the odometer, or not. Can this be done at home with an OBDII gadget or would it need to be taken to a specialist with the right equipment to examine the ECU? Cheers, Tom.
  9. Druid and everybody else, Thanks for the help with this. I have made a decision and, yes, I will buy the 5.11 Rush 12 in Multicam. It just does and has everything that I want. Druid, As you say the likelihood is that I won't need the waist belt but it's nice to have the option, also, the missus works in the fashion industry so she should be able to source some webbing and a fastex buckle. If not, they are easy enough to find on the web. Thanks again, Tom.
  10. Skarclaw, I know, but it's the principal and all that. Dr, Fair do's. Cheers, Tom.
  11. I sent a UK registered company an email asking why they charge 20% VAT when an item/s are sent to the UK but they charge 22% when sending to Italy. The only thing that changed was the destination country, the payment currency (£ Sterling) remained the same but the total was increased by £1.87 for the Italian order. This sounds like complete bu****it as I'm paying a UK based company and hence the UK government, doesn't matter where it's sent. Their reply: I include screen grabs below to show the differences. Thoughts? Tom.

    Ebay 'Import Charges' Scam And How To Resolve It?

    This is what I bought: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Casio-BM-500W-watch-Excellent-Condition-FREE-SHIPPING/332680236830?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 However, when you click 'See Original Listing' it goes elsewhere. Why? Tom.

    Ebay 'Import Charges' Scam And How To Resolve It?

    Definitely the right link: Ebay.co.uk > Purchase History > Unpaid Items > Clicked item title > See Original Listing. Edit: Your right! When I log out of Ebay it goes to a completely different listing and seller. Hold on. Tom.

    Ebay 'Import Charges' Scam And How To Resolve It?

    Cancellation not available. I've written to the seller to see if they can cancel, relist at the price sold or even do a modified invoice eliminating the charge. We'll see. Tom.
