Hi gunt , i tried the purchase portal a number of times over a period of time and had no success ,and your are right it will take time for things to stabilize .I have received a PM advising me when it would be appropriate to make contact again.

Thanks,
Hoodeng.

And I have suggested a snail mail address to do these kinds of purchases, for people that refuse to do business online, as well as non credit card people. With no mail address some folks have no place to send a check or money order to.

Unfortunately exhaustgases i am half a world away ,so an online transaction is easiest for both parties, i do have a US forwarding address which will make freight easy.

Cheers.

Hello Jim,sorry about the delay in reply ,but i found my message to you was still in the 'out box' of the personal message page , i had clicked on the send but its not sending.My message was as below.

Thanks.

Hi Jim ,
Thank you for your offer , you will need to factor in a bit of freight to Australia on top of your $50 , US Postal Service will be fine . I do have a US freight forwarding address ,but i have just freighted out a major parts order and don't see myself getting another order up in the near future ,the freight consolidator has a maximum holding time of 30 days ,so it's probably not practical to send it there.

Send me your bank details and how much to deposit to cover all your costs if you are still good to do the deal.

How's that ! the 'Adelaide institute of TAFE' is 8km from my place.The Adelaide Uni Mech eng library has another comprehensive repository.
I am still looking into sourcing the book from one of the ST guys.

Cheers and thanks.
