  1. I've just received my 3D printed Samyang 135 mounting kit from the above supplier. I needed the kit customised to be able to accommodate my ASIair unit. After speaking to the owner Johann, he agreed to print the extended dovetail bar. A real pleasure to do business with, emails were answered quickly, I was kept upto date on progress & items arrived very quickly & are very well made (The Haribos were an unexpected bonus ) I would highly recommend this supplier.

I live between the Northern Pennines & Lake District so it gets pretty cold round here so i'm
  7. If I were a scammer i'd have being playing a reeeeeeeeally long , convoluted game
  8. Ive had one in a drawer for about 5years & never used it, now I need it , it seems to have gone on holiday . A friend of mine works in Police IT forensics & he's going to grab one for me from his work tomorrow .
  9. @Ande One thing I didn't count on was needing a micro SD to SD adapter , Just ordered one from Amazon so should be here in a few days. I'm not risking anything until i've backed up the OS.
  10. That's the next piece of my AP jigsaw puzzle delivered
  11. This last 10 months of furlough has near enough bankrupted me
