Sure, I can watch telly that goes off now and then

Watson FA7029 Colour CRT TV with fast-text and remote control.

After it has been on for quite a while, the TV suffers some intermittent pops and crackles. This is sometimes accompanied by momentary loss of the picture.
If you are happy to live with this or known something about tinkering with TV’s then it’s yours for diddly squat.

Some people never clear out their cars

Offered Breadmaker BD22 (Haworth) This is a Prima Home Bakery which worked fine BUT the baking bowl section lost it’s non-stick quality and eventually got lost after sitting in the car for months (popped in there so I could check if it was the right one if I saw spares for sale. Of course I never got round to sorting it). I imagine you can source a new one from somewhere, or perhaps the main part of yours has gone kaput and you have that bit. Either way get in touch if it’s any use.

Just refuse it

Size doesn’t matter anyway, so long as it’s got a decent picture…
October 16, 2007

Hi, Can anyone find a home for a tv (not flatscreen) that needs a
little tlc? I’m offering this on behalf of a family member so apologies
if info is limited! We couldn’t find a tape measure so we were debating
size, at least 20″, I thought bigger, it’s certainly big enough for a
lounge tv. Comes with remote & also has teletext, downside is picture
keeps going off & we have no technical expertise!

OFFERED Click-clack double sofa bed without cushions/mattress. Nice
October 6, 2007

2metres long. In pale beechwood (?) Not the pull out type so if it is against the wall you need to pull it away from the wall to open but does not take up much more room when open (unlike the pullout ones) . Unfortunately I accidentally gave the futon mattress/cushions away, forgetting that it was associated with the bed which was being used with a conventional mattress. I also have misplaced the bolts and the click clack bits . Let me know if you are interested and I will find them.

Otherwise I will convert into a garden bench.

So, basically, this is now just some vaguely associated lengths of wood

OFFERED – Tefal human weighing scales, only half working
May 16, 2007

The good news is that the display (lbs and kilos) works on these Tefal electronic scales, but I appear to weight zero when I stand on them. It is therefore mistaken by an amount I am not prepared to reveal online. These need some electronics whizz to figure out why standing on them doesn’t register.
