well it'll weigh 625kgs Shaun, so anything that equates to scrap value will be a bargain and always recoverable .... unless scrap plummets .... but almost always comes back eventually :rolleyes: ..... who remembers scrap at over £300 a ton? :giggle:

Talking of scrap Some ex forces bloke I used to work with was stationed in Germany I presume when Berlin wall was still up. He reckons they could go to one part of the country, collect scrap and weigh it in the other part. Was he talking s**t or what? I know we can collect scrap here and weigh it in. But he was almost talking like it was worth nothing in one part.

would imagine in East Germany at that time, even being able to move about freely or even move at all was a bit of a privilege so can well believe it Jim ... was tough there, back then

Fair play he didn't seem like a bullshitter but just wondered why nobody else was at it. Like you say perhaps he had more freedom of movement

dare say, that those who could, were ... just thin on the ground, with the ability to move freely ..... I've known a few folk from from the former East Germany and it really was like 'Big Brother' is watching you ... constantly ... we have no idea how suppressed they really were

I doubt they will let it go cheap, you see their stuff (the same items) getting auctioned numerous times, guessing if it doesn't make the price.
I`ve bought of them, and they where straight.

He’s old school, basic mobile phone is his technology limit. I believe his wife does anything computer based, but don’t think he’d be bidding if left to her if you know what I mean 😉🤣
Same as my old man basic 90/2000s Nokia phone not even got bluetooth
Have to show him stuff if he needs to look at something someone has mentioned
