If you're an eBay user, you might try this guy... the item didn't sell at $5.95, perhaps he'll negotiate? If you're concerned about eBay rules and regs, simply ask him to re-list it at a lower price,...

RE: 157

Agree on most points, but I found it very difficult to explain the vast <u>differences in ranges</u>, i.e. 55 to 80mm actual vs 114 to 122mm calculated. Just didn't make sense. After sleeping on it,...

RE: 157
