Hello Jeff,

I will send you a photo of the ones I had for sale on eBay, complete with shells and non-rusty bolts. When I can find it!

Your sprags look good. I still have three left from my Ringspan order but one is being used next weekend on the Vampire, whilst I'm also renewing the battery!

I have a pair of spare rods amongst my bits and bobs... Not too different from those on Ebay.  Hope they're OK if ever needed...  :-\

I've put two of the sprags aside for my own use...  The min order was 10 units, so I had eight to pass on to other deserving folk...

Looks like five of those have found new homes at time of writing...  :)

Worth checking your spare conrods Jeff. Remove the bolts to check for rust... Cover them in ACF50 and wax paper for when you never need them....

Will do Robert...

Coincidentally, I picked up some ACF50 at the NEC last week... Looks like it's going into use straight away...
