Forum rules
You're welcome to trade Acorn-related stuff with other forum members here - the rule of thumb to follow when trading, is that items or services offered should be of interest to our Acorn community. Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of. This forum is not for advertising items you have for sale on ebay or other third party marketplaces.

I have inherited a few boxes of 5.25-inch floppies claiming to be a suite of teaching software for CNC machinists.

They haven't been stored very well ("the driest of our sheds", to quote the widow) and I'm not sure what good they'd be (being over 30 years old - teaching that sort of thing has moved on a bit since then).

Anyone want them? (Collection from DE15 or for cost of postage.) Otherwise they're going in the bin.

Box is about 9.5 inches long. It has about 50 floppies in it.

I also have another box of about 200 floppies (the usual: mostly unlabelled, some copied games, one or two marked "Sharon's recipes" and some Welcome disks) but there's nothing special about those. I wouldn't trust them to store any data these days.
