Checking my watch

Shop around people...

I always check elsewhere before buying stuff on ebay, because I often find it cheaper to cut out the middle man. I'm not surprised there is a small hike in cost to cover ebay's fees... But his morning's example astounded me.

I need 20 of these bearings.

Ebay price including postage £47
Technobots.co.uk price including postage £16.64
Same bearings, same make. Go figure.

Technobots.co.uk (I'll give 'em a plug because I get a lot of stuff from them and they are really helpful)

They arrived the very next day. Thank you Technobots!
