What i mean is, For example i had an HF radio here faulty, Just the bare set no lead/mic etc etc and had no idea of its value, So before the no offers rule i put it up offers spares repair with a detailed description of the fault, An hour or so went by and i had an offer which i accepted, We were both happy with the outcome, I could have put a higher price on it but i am not greedy,
If someone wants something i have thats no use too me i usually give it away, Even if it means popping it into an envelope and 1st class stamp which is only a few pence, Which i have done numerous times.
In short If you have something now that you have no real clue of what to ask you cannot advertise it, Its got naff all to do with ebay style auctions at all.
99.9% of the time i always put a price and always like a haggle etc, But in some cases its just not possible.
