We can't promise that every "Wanted" advertisement will work as well as the following - but you never know:
"I thought you might like to know that the last of my advertisements has been very successful, as were all the others. This was a 'Wanted Advert' for a Thiel high-speed vertical head, It was only on your advice that the advert mentioned I would also consider a 'complete machine' and, as a result, the foreman of the University workshop in L****** (who was viewing your site, looking for a woodturning lathe) spotted my advert and contacted me. His workshop capacity was being reduced - and I am now the proud owner of a fully equipped Thiel 158 with the rare high-speed head, all the collets, universal table and special Thiel circular table - all resplendent in unmarked original paint. The university decided to keep the dividing head but I couldn't grumble as everything was offered for just 100. I didn't negotiate, just drove straight there and bought it! There was even a handbook, spares catalogue and the original test certificates."
So your site definitely works for both Sales and Wants - and in my case knocks E-bay out of sight. Thank you for an excellent service,
