CAR BOOT SALE

In the UK theres a long tradition of getting up insanely early on a Sunday morning, and gathering in fields to sell crap to each other out of the boot of your car. No doubt other countries have similar events specifically designed to stimulate the trade in appallingly tasteless china ornaments and Engelbert Humperdinck vinyl.

Back in the day these events were bursting at the seams with speak & spell machines and Casio SK1's, and we've all heard the stories of how someones cousins brother in law found a TB303 for £5. Odd how its never someone you actually know, although we did once get an Akai S900 with the trigger input board for £5 because the woman selling it couldn't work out how to get a VHS cassette into it!

Inevitably over the years of running circuitbenders.co.uk we've amassed a vast amount of odd bits and pieces that we just can't bring ourselves to throw away, so it tends to just pile up in boxes waiting for someone to do something with it. This page is intended to list all this stuff for sale in our own private car boot sale, so hopefully some of it will go to a better home.

PLEASE NOTE: If it says UNTESTED on the details, then thats exactly what it is. This could be because we don't have the ability to test it, or we just can't be bothered. Either way, you pay your money and you take the risk. We can't accept returns on anything on this page and accept no responsiblity for anything whatsoever!

Wah PCB's: £3.50 - £6 each + P&P
3mm cleaning filament

Targus Akai S20 leather carry bag: £10 + P&P
3mm cleaning filament
CONDITION:
Used. Could do with a clean but still fully functional
NOTES:
God knows how we got hold of this, but its a leather carrying bag designed for an Akai S20 sampler! Probably from the late 90's. Theres a padded space for the S20 plus all kinds of pockets, some of which appear to be designed to hold floppy disks. It'd still work fine as a bag for anything else of vaguely the same size.

30 x 12 position rotary switches: £10 + P&P
3mm cleaning filament
CONDITION:
Brand new & fully functional, but may be a bit odd - see below.
NOTES:
These are a little strange. They're not Alpha or Lorlin kind of quality, but they're better than a lot of Chinese crap you see. The weird bit is that they were sold to us as being 4 position switches. In reality they are standard 1 pole, 12 position and for some reason the seller had not understood the purpose of the position stopper ring and done something mad with some glue instead. They all seem to work fine as the seller failed at whatever they were trying to do, but as a result of a blob of superglue you might have some difficulty getting to stopper ring into position 3 or 4 on some of them.
