Thread: Excellent service
25/04/2020 13:42:02

I recently ordered a set of cores from Billkits, They are for a rather large delta ,so i was very surprised when, after a couple of weeks with myself and Bill deciding the final requirements i was told they were in the post. When they arrive is in the lap of the gods as the post here in Portugal is currently second to "snail mail" Once again many thanks to BILL MANLEY for first class service. STEVE.

I recently ordered a set of cores from Billkits, It has taken less than two weeks including discussions with Bill on the final requirements to them being in the post. When they arrive is in the lap of the gods due to post here in Portugal being behind "snail mail" Many thanks to BILL MANLEY.

Thread: Insanity seems to be setting in
15/03/2020 16:47:07

I´m not that much different to Peter and Erf in age and find my way blocked by younger drivers. The difference is that here in Portugal the motorways are nearly empty due to toll charges.

Peter, They haven´t enough police to catch real crims, So you are pretty safe even if as they say those not self isolating could be arrested.

Warming it will thin it slightly BUT do not over heat as that will ruin its properties.
