    Hey guys, I have been clearing out my storage unit, and came across these excellent, but old data books. I was going to just dump them, but before I do, if anyone would like them, they are yours for the cost of the shipping. I would prefer that you collect them from me here (Glasgow) and am willing to meet up with you somewhere around this neck of the woods, but I am just as happy if you want to send a courier to collect them. I hate seeing stuff like this going to waste and it's a real pity I have to dispose of them, but I have no space for them now. They are not all in pristine condition and have been well used over the years, and dry stored for a couple, but there are quite a few of them that have only been used occasionally for reference and almost in new condition. Either way, they are all readily readable.

    Send me a pm if you would like them.

    There is a deadline to this offer, 20th March 2014. If nobody has come forward by then, they are unfortunately off to landfill.
    It's a job lot, no picking out your favourites here, if you take one, you take the lot.
    It's first come, first served!

    Here is the last photo a little larger. Are you in the UK? These books are heavy, shipping intl will likely be expensive.

    Hey tech,
    sure, 'been playing around with raspberry/arduino for while now, any little know-how about coding is good thing at my current work.
    As for taking things apart, it's been pretty quiet in that part (funny...) as i haven't been able to check out local flea markets. I do have that 3~ 1.5Kw motor speed controller, which has interesting stuff inside.

    You made new profile? how come?

    Ok chaps, I have split the books into two boxes, one full of the Motorola Data/ Application books for Fezder and one with the others in it for BGAmodz.
    To get an accurate quote for your shipping costs, I have weighed them and taken measurements of the boxes.

    Check your shipping costs and let me know if you still want them or not :)

    Motorola Box for Fezder:
    Weight: 12Kg
    Dimensions: 380mm x 250mm x 250mm

    Other box for BGAmodz:
    Weight: 10Kg
    Dimensions: 400mm x 260mm x 180mm

    PM me your address and postcode and I'll calculate your shipping costs via both royal mail and the courier that I normally use if you want me to arrange the shipping for you.

    These kind of books are very helpful to us for any situation. I am interested to collect some books in your collection. Can you provide me free shipping on three books.
