#401969 Recommend Everyone Who Buys A Memory Card Does This!!!

Posted by stef123 on Today, 01:16 AM

They had a bit about these fake cards on fake Britain of whatever the program is..

One guy had bought a cheap solid state hard drive.. Didn't work properly so he decided to open it up to find it was a case with bolts glued inside it :lol:

I think the lesson is beware of who your purchase from - that said amazon took a pounding for it aswell as ebay.

Oooh multi tip,
Ill diagnose which tip i require and get a loan of only it and the driver in order to save some weight on postage :)

Mind tell the women in the post office what's in the package..

I sent a 1/2 ratchet first class today. Women in the post office said, because of the weight and size I need to know what's inside the bag. I couldn't help but think.. Mind your own business? Even if it was plastic explosive I'm not going to tell you am I?

That's the thing I couldn't get insured on anything higher so wouldn't declare the work done. I just want something with a lot more poke and with not going to be able to get insurance this only seems the only way

Sorry to say but that's potentially a jail sentence if god forbid you were to cause an accident.

#399758 What Could You Share?

all good intentions etc,but on another forum im on we discussed this very same thing.
what happens if the item doesnt come back?
what happens if from 1 member its sent back broken and they deny it?
what happens if the item fails when being used and injures someone?who is responsible?
sorry if you think this pees on your parade not intentional.

Here's my views on this and there would need to be some sort of disclaimer.

First of all, for me I won't be sending anything out by post, so it would all be face to face.

Anyone lending out tools/equipment surely should be looking for a deposit, ID etc.

As far as failures/injuries go. IMO just like we do in the trade - the person renting out the equipment should be inspecting it and making sure it's all complete and free of defects and so on, secondly the person who has hired it should also be doing the same and refusing to use anything they are not happy with. Again, some sort of disclaimer that says you use any equipment at your own risk. I wouldn't give out any equipment I'm not happy to use myself.

Stef, for a fella who text me and said "I havent got a clue what to do for my car conundrum" all those moons ago, your too bleedin good at these things....
You spoiled my game with your difficultness :P

Yeah I know mate, I was really struggling at first to think of something that I could disguise.

Now I'm just picking a random component and thinking about how it's made up, what it does etc

It's my ball and I'm going home James? Lol

Haha! I think that's tricked a few people. If i say.. It's a semi solid lubricant. Does that help?

yeah to be fair though, This is Fife Garages you have for hire - whatever happened to that BM engine swap you were doing :P

I wish I could have a 2 post lift mate lol.

Yeah the bmw is still happening.. Just waiting on the guy phoning me when he gets the engine. Should be sometime soon.
I have been speaking with the wife about a few funny picture/video opportunities I will have - I'm saying no more about that until I post them up lol.

Karl you can blame Kurt and post 151 :lol:

I have a single axis of rotation. I can go clockwise or anti clockwise.

I am lubricated by a soap which suspends an oil.

I start off cold but I heat up.

My life will be reduced if I get too hot. I can last for many thousands of miles.

(Btw this is not a complex part or anything)

It did sound rattley when i left my house but i just drove on, and no evidence apart from me saying sorry if it came off my car which he said it did will just wait and see what happens thank you :) hopefully no insurance claims are needed lol

So your saying..

He claims the part fell off your car? Presumably he was alone? You didn't see it fly off? that heatshield lying down the road might not be from your car? If you see where I'm going with this...

It might not be the right advice but I would deny it, little or no evidence to suggest it come from your car if you ask me.

you git.thought that was goner keep em all guessing for a bit. :P :D

Haha! I come back onto this thread after seeing you had replied thinking.. I will go for parking sensors next :lol:

Im struggling to think of one right now, I'm off to bed and will report back in the morning. The early morning hard one perhaps? Lol

#399253 Advice Needed

Posted by stef123 on 18 August 2014 - 10:28 PM

Quickly, fire the heatshield back on :lol:

I have to admit, if the damage is literally limited to a fog light he is going a bit ott!

The sad world we live in means honesty gets you nowhere. Wait and see if your insurance get in touch, you never know he might not even phone his insurance, and anyway. For a £40 fog life he is probably putting his next years premium up by registering a claim! (Even if it is non fault it still goes against you).

I use Pagid all the time now unless someone says they want something else. Never had any issues and they are good quality.

Are the shoes in need of replacement too? They tend to last a very long time
