Default UK Availibility Of Nylon Hold Down Clamps

Hi,
Lee Valley Tools - Important Announcement
I've done a search but can't find these available in the UK. Does anyone know if these or something like them are available in the UK?
The Veritas metal ones are really expensive.
Pete.

Peter, if you fully completed your profile it wouldn't surprise me if one or more American members volunteered to buy them for you and post them on to you, allowing you to transfer the funds into their PayPal account, which is a great way to purchase things overseas. I keep emphasising to new members that it is in their own interest to fully complete their profile for several obvious reasons. This forum, about the most knowledgeable on the net, is also the friendliest, believe me Peter. By the way, where about in the UK are you from, I'm from Manchester but have lived in Western Australia since 1964, possibly before you were born!

Hi Peter

I've several of these that came from either Bauhaus here or from the UK. They are fairly widely available and you should be able to find them in one of the big box stores.
I'll check for you.

OK ! Howzat !!??

I see Axminster also do those pipe clamps for fitting on the gas pipe. Not got these yet, the pipe is available in Swindon. Will get the nylon clamps together with the pipe clamps, orders over 50 quid get free p&p. Seem to recollect Axminsters price on the pipe clamps was the best around.
Cheers.

With such an interesting profile Peter you're bound to make forum friends quickly. If you have any questions at all, don't be shy to ask, no questions are considered stupid on this forum.

I've just spent time viewing your wife's web site, she is one very talented lady which suggests to me that you are able to spend your days enjoying yourself in your hobby shop as a kept man!
