    This part is brand new and boxed.

    I bought the last one for 127 but he has put another up and it starts at 50

    Not yet, had two attempts at cutting the fixing.

    First try the kettle + electric heater overlaoded the fuse and plunged me in to darkness. Second attempt, didn't notice the sudden cessation of power had taken the tool tip off

    Unit looked a tadge vulnerable so I contacted the seller and bought 2 more at his start price :heehee:

    Z lever done, the Omron switch does everything it said on the tin, un-freaking-believeable. Farnell list them for 1664 + tax
