I seem to have become custodian, probably because of the fact that I go to all the West Midlands nano-meets, where it will be in demand
After the nano-meet on 22nd August, the VIS motor tester will be available for any community meet or to any community member, free of charge, other than the cost of postage, which I estimate to be slightly less than Ã‚Â£3 for first class recorded delivery.
Here is where I'd be grateful to community members for their opinions please.
Most of our members, at the moment, are well known and established in the 75/ZT world. However, we all have to start somewhere and I'd be a little concerned about sending the VIS motor tester off to somebody who has just joined the community. NOT because of any elitist, 'get some time in' attitude because this community doesn't work like that.
No, my concern is purely the fact that I'd like to be assured of the VIS motor tester's safe return and the way to do that is what I'd very much value your opinion on please.
Taking a deposit is a nightmare and also a costly exercise when using Paypal and it would discriminate against new members.
Recommendation by a long-standing member of the community is good, IF a new member happens to know somebody in that category.
Requirement for having made an arbitrary number of posts is, in my view, utterly divisive.
So you see my problem, I hope. Or maybe there isn't a problem, other than in my perception.
Any ideas please?
