Notifications are alerts that the user receives when a new post is made to a topic that the user is subscribed to: or a new PM (private message) is waiting; or the user has been "quoted", "m...

Re: Square Sewing Awls

As long as no personal gain, self-promotion or profit is involved it is quite alright to post the name or internet address of the German company or the EBay link or even the price you paid.

If there is any question or doubt email admin for approval.

Re: Shoe machines

Just to forestall any possible problems...all quotes or selling advice that involves estimates of value on this equipment would be best kept to private mail or email.
