    Default Interesting tool box advert

    Quite by accident I came across this advert on the internet:

    It's interesting because a couple of years ago I bought this on ebay - guy was clearing out his Dad's garage and this was sat gathering dust:

    Shields are indented so it looks legit:

    The shelves left hand side of the front detach, they were in the bottom draw when I got it. Both keys are with it.

    Anyway, not really looking to sell it on but anyone fancy hazarding a guess what it might be worth? I've not got a clue but I certainly didn't pay much for it, just liked it and it stores all my tools nicely.

    I'll start the bidding at a square sausage roll - as these have just been invented (copyright Aldi) there's guaranteed to be a huge premium on these initially, so a fair swap I would say

    I asked a guy local to me who's pretty into his cars (has a Ferrari, Lambo, couple of other toys I think) what he thought, he simply messaged back "How much do you want for it?" I feel sure he'll offer more than a square sausage roll so I feel you may already have been out-bid

    I can stretch to two round sausage rolls, a scotch egg (both new) and a one-owner packet of Maasdam cheese - open but 80% complete.

    Still feel you may come up just short......

    Anyway, I’m not really looking to sell just wondered if anyone had any (sensible) suggestions or ideas. Really it was more out of interest to see where it came from and what it was allegedly designed for.

    It sort of fits in in my garage so think I’ll be keeping it:

    It's worth what someone will pay. I think a sausage roll, and a Costa coffee thrown in to sweeten the deal is a fair trade.

    ... realistically? A Beta trolley(new) of similar dimensions cost about £800. Higher spec ones go for 1500-2000. Being a rare production, and a certain Ferrari tax most likely was added on initial sale, it's probably worth quite a bit more than you paid for it.
    2 sausage rolls, and a large Costa?

    Thanks, thatís pretty much in line with my thoughts. So you lot can keep your sausage rolls of various shapes

    How about a couple of Oggie's and a beer?

    I know, I know...way outbidding the sausage roles but I really really want it
