I reckon I’d base myself near York. A fantastic City, NRM, North Yorkshire Moor Railway plus many other places of interest and the Lake District not far away. And that is coming from a southerner. +1 for York as above you are also within striking distance of KWVR and of course the Settle to Carlisl...

Notably they are selling them in smaller 10 packs as well as in the normal 50 pack, however the unit price is only pennies different to the genuine article and they are current rated at only 24A compared to Wago at 30A...

Until recently it was still possible to get A4 acetate sheets for overhead projectors from the likes of the now defunct Staples, I used them to produce masks for photoetch PCBs which I have not done for ...
