Thanks novo I'm getting there slowly :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I was stick welding for 10+ years before I touched a mig & still have one here, to be honest I'm much better with a stick welder than a mig on reasonable thickness steel, just got bored with cleaning the slag up all the time :laughing-rolling:

Well I used up the last of my bits & this is the result :!:

I'm not sure the trader will be getting this one as I really like it & have discovered what he's attempting to sell some of my stuff for :?

lets just say I'm shocked at what he thinks its worth :o don't get me wrong some of the stuff he's had he's trying to knock out at a small profit which is fair enough but bigger pieces :o I see I'm going to have to be careful with this bloke, I'm not completely daft though my prices to him just went up :lol:

A few people have said try to get into one of the London streampunk type shops & make some decent money off this stuff but I don't know what I'm looking for or where to start with that :?:

if your making a decent profit don’t worry too much what he may get for bigger stuff. He has to store it and sell it. Don’t get greedy. Quick turn around is what you want.

People get offended at time when I buy a exhaust and they see it for sale elsewhere at a lot more.

Me knowing how to list, what it’s worth cleaning it up well enough etc and being willing to wait at times for a decent price.

You said didn’t want it to be a business as such. Reevaluate your prices sure but don’t price yourself up too much so you loose quick turn around deals. I find it a hard balance myself on my small time exhaust sales. I alwAys want to move on to next deal soon as I get something lol.

I am with you on that Mike a quick turn around is always good for me & I don't really care what he makes as such but I'm surprised at what he's asking for some of it

Lets put it another way a 30% or even 50% mark up is fine & to be expected but a 200% mark up isn't, my own fault for selling it too cheap I know but it still rankles & it wont be happening again ;)

He did say something along the lines of "its market forces, supply & demand" or some such banality but didn't seem to like it much when I mentioned he would be stuffed if he had the demand & I refused to supply at the prices :laughing-rolling:

I did try tell you about your prices :lol:

I do understand what you saying. Perspnaly I try work on atleast doubling my money on everything I buy. Obviously I aim for more but some deals won’t allow that. If I can get a quick ££ then on to next Ekth smaller outlays I happier than having too much in one item unfortunately I’m stuck in the latter atm. Haha. :roll:

You sir are a creative genius, love the clock. I take it the copper pipework is a wee lamp, which I would spend hours polishing, as I did as a kid, brass, copper whatever was in the house I polished. Keep meaning to get an old timing cover from a brit bike and polish it up to hang on the wall, one day maybe.

Great seeing your stuff, you have a talent mate, :-bd: :-bd:
