If you have anything you no longer want, list it here, either for free, swap or sale. You can also list the things you want.


Sale or Swap

  • DVB-C to firewire thingy
  • DVB-S card


  • A couple of tivos (claimed by glen)


Sale or swap

  • 2x PCI DVB-T cards


  • A Dyson DC-16 handheld vacuum, with a knackered battery and no charger. Or tools.


  • A crappy electric drill, at least 18V


Sale or Swap

  • Misc servers, no disks, Celeron/P4-era, dodgy cases, not proper server-grade things


(For student/community non-profit radio station - Insanity Radio 1287AM, Egham)

  • Any broadcast engineering/studio equipment
  • Microphones, amplifiers, speakers, mixers, any other sound gear
  • Old PCs - anything that can run Linux and make noise

(For me)

  • Magnetic card reader/writer
  • Radios (ham, SW, FM, LW, MW, etc) and radio gear
  • Fibre networking gear (FC HBAs, NICs, switches, disk arrays)
  • Storage equipment - old NAS boxes, tape drives, etc (nothing under 100Gb unless it's something like a 73GB/10kRPM FC/SCSI disk)

  • 3 Motorola XTN446 radios with drop-in chargers. As new.
  • Datron 1051 DVM and 1220 scanner (IEEE-488)
  • Small environmental chamber (heat, cold, but not humidity) ~50l capacity
  • GPS receiver modules Blox RCB-4H (I have a lot of these, and they're linked to a board that can insert the GPS location and some accelerometer data as text into a video overlay. £10)


  • Broken Eee PC for spares, or just an Eee PC 4G (701) keyboard.
  • Electronics testgear, working or not
  • Old calculators, especially hewlett packard


Various stuff that I could bring to the space by arrangement, for temporary use (some of these are heavy and most would require a car trip so not trivial):

  • Testgear - signal generators, DVMs, counters, oscilloscopes, logic analysers, spectrum analysers, LCR measurement, PSUs, current probes etc. Ask if you're looking for something.
  • Mechanical - sheet folder, toggle press, die filer, power hacksaw, grinding vice, scrollsaws, MIG welder, forge/brazing hearth, bar cropper.



  • Pair of hifi speaker stands.



  • Lots of pneumatic gear - 3x 50mm bore 300mm stroke 10 bar cylinders, lots of smaller cylinders, solenoid 3-port valves, 2 carbon dioxide fire extinguishers, 10 bar regulator, 11 bar and 68 bar relief valves, 2l 16 bar buffer tank. None certified/tested, used at collector's risk!
  • 4x Hawker PC680 deep cycle sealed lead-acid batteries, 12V 7Ah if I recall correctly - about 8 years old but kept topped up regularly
  • 0.47 and 0.1 ohm resistors, 200W


  • Revolution counter, the small kind you find in tape recorders.
  • Clockwork motor

alexs (find me on IRC)

Alex P (creature on IRC)

For sale or swap

  • IBM Thinkpad floppy drive. Taken from an IBM Thinkpad T20. FRU P/N 05K9206.
  • Western Digital MyBook Pro 500GB. This thing tends to give me I/O errors after it's been mounted for a few days, but it's about a 50/50 chance that's down to my PC's crappy USB handling than the drive. It's got a USB2.0 and Firewire interface, so if nothing else you could use it as a smart new drive enclosure.
  • Brand new Acer keyboard and mouse. Came with my Acer Aspire Revo, but I'm using it as a headless server. Both are white, and still in their packaging. The mouse is optical and has a scrollwheel; the keyboard has that flat-button style that Apple keyboards have these days. It's a little smaller than standard, but not as small as a laptop keyboard. Both are USB devices.
  • Electric guitar. This thing's an undeniable clunker. The action is pretty shit, the electronics could do with a soldering iron to make the connections less dodgy, and the paint job is nasty. It is a body someone rescued from a skip and bolted a new neck to. But! If you wanted a cheap way to try out the guitar, or smash one up without spending too much, or try being a luthier, or just leave it lying around the house to impress girls – this is the guitar for you.


  • 3.5" internal floppy drive.
  • VGA cable.
  • 2x kettle leads (power cables).
