    I've found a guy in Coventry. He's charging me

    £25 for 100M 1.5mm2
    £35 for 100M 2.5mm2
    £35 for 50M 6.0mm2

    It's all BASIC approved mostly Pirelli, Copper cable company etc

    All cash prices (no VAT on top)

    I think this must be the chrapest prices in the country!

    There is plenty of good quality bankrupt stock floating about at the moment JP, so it may well be OK.

    On the other hand...

    There is always of course plenty of good quality nicked stuff about.

    I'd be wary of a mobile only phone contact.

    No this is all Kosher stuff. It's bankrupt stock.

    I've had Pirelli, AEI, Copper Cable Company and ASD off him.

    He has given me permission to only put his mobile number on here. There is no problem with his land line and picking it up from his premises at all, once you have made contact with him.

    It probably wouldn't save you much dosh JP as you only use about 100M every couple of months ;)

    Why would he give you permission to give out his mobile number, and not do it himself. Are you 'him' and creating sales for yourself?

    Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread, but just bought 100m of 2.5 from a different supplier from my usual, and it's utter rubbish! Really stiff, and the outer sheath is partly fused onto the inner insulation so it's nearly impossible to strip. Had to use a few meters of it in desperation, so I resorted to the hot air gun to make it strippable! It's got a label stuck on the reel saying it's BASEC approved but really anyone could fake that. No name on it though. Anyway it's going straight back.
