Why don't the people who have a blade and never used it offer them for sale on here?

How do you know deals havent been done by PM ?   ;)

That would be great, DS users getting great deals and sharing equipment  :D but my point was that there is a For Sale section and I've not seen any of the unused digging tools on there.

To be honest I had forgotten that I had one, until Stuarts thread started.  I had a PM from a DS member asking me if, as I said that I didnt use it, would I sell it to him, deal done.
It reminded me that I had another digging implement which I dont use and that is now in the DS " for sale" section.

Nice one, win win.  That trowel looks good the kind of thing I'm going for when the mini spade wears out.
I bet there's a whole heap of gear out there that could be re-sold amongst the forum....anyone found an Ace250 at the back of a cupboard????  ;D

The " for sale" sections of the forum are actually pretty well used, plenty of stuff comes up for sale, but its just your luck if you see what youre looking for before somebody else does  ;)

I had two, a cheap one and a not quite so cheap one, I bought both just to see the difference and the cheapest one was the best so I put the other one in to one of the DS raffles, I don't use the one I still have but wouldn't sell it but anyone who wants can have it for the day at a dig, its free for Sunday Stuart if you want it.

Thanks for the offer Peter,... going by what others have said,..and me knowing the type of stoney ground I have to deal with around here, I have gone ahead and bought one

I will likely carry it on DS digs, but weither I use it often or not on a DS dig I dont know, but I think it will be of good use to me on my own patch at least,..

I will have to make a good holster for it now,...I have enough leather here to do the job once it arrives

No problem Stuart, not leather but I got a holster with my one and will never use it, you can have it for free if you like.
