    Thank you for that, im not sure why i couldnt get the link to work, and yes that is a very interesting page. I will still however do what i said, as i will probably do a complete strip down measure and refurb on the unit including new steppers and the such.
    but again thanks, its always easier to do a project when you know there is a font of knowlege such as the people on this forum to help out when you get stuck.

    :surprised: :surprised: :surprised: George thanks for that it made me laugh, I think i will write my own, 40 is taking the P*## a bit. I often wonder just how much these people think about marketing, I bet they sell a load at that price!!!

    Ok the machine arrived last night and the first thing i will say is "If you want to know how much one of these things weigh, well 4 big lads all struggled to move it, and I mean big strong lads."

    More to follow!

    surely the opposite is true... its supply and demand... how many people want one? very few, therefore to make it profitable to sell it attracts a premium. Most of the manuals Tony sells are 15 - 25. He has to cover his costs, whether he buys them in or reprints them. I bet if you went to Boxford and asked to buy a manual they'd ask a lot more, assuming they'd sell it to you at all.

    Hey i take your point however that is just too much full stop, and by the same token if it had been around 20 I would have paid it in a flash, as would others I suspect, but as it is ive walked away. How much money was made from that? A product is only worth what people are willing to pay for it. Whilst I understand that costs need to be covered and profits need to be made, is it not also true that if few people are buying maybe its the price that is too high, high prices are usually dictated by how many people want the product and so are willing to pay more than the others, A very very succesfull auction site on the net is testament to that, the greater the demand, the higher the price. But at the end of the day if i want it bad enough i will pay whatever is asked, so maybe that is the reason the manual is priced at 40 its upto who ever is selling it and please dont think any insult to the seller was intended, its just too pricey for me.
