Re: Take my money! BNIB BBC Master!

£200, maybe £250 with a couple of people after it (best guess) :D

Finger in air, although I have one too, which I didn't pay that much for (from memory) but it was a while ago now.

Looking good Martin :D +1 for the bl702a too, I also took delivery of one this week and am very impressed. Was surprised how light it was too, handy for me as don't have the space to leave the arc set up permanently at the moment.
