Anyone here know of an independant specialist called Colin Ferns who resides somewhere in Kent? Is he reliable?

I live in richmond near Kew....sounds ideal for me, I'll see if I can visit him for a look see and let you know what I find.

Just rang them, I know where they are now... havnt been there in a while but it used to be a scruffy back street workshop for any old jalopy. Maybe they have revamped the place - I'll check it out.

I've met him personally at MB Greatwest Road, he seems like a nice chap.

The issue was him threatening me with legal action for not posting of a CPU to him within 8 days which I thought was a little previous. I advertised it on E-bay and believe it or not the final price was £10 !! he haggled over the postage as I wanted to send it securley, he insisted on Recorded Delivery. It has been sent and his cheque is sitting on my desk still not banked. I dont know if I will ever bank it as feel that he has the better of the deal. My reason for a time lag is work related. Working nights as I was then tends to intefere with your normal daily schedule. I rather got the feeling that he was a rip off merchant and was hoping non of us here were his victim. His attitude from day one was rather gruff and it certainly puts my back up a little. Anyway the matter is resolved and apparantly his reputation according to people here is ok. Its probably just me and my frame of mind at the time.
