    Now spud has stopped taking on courier work so not taking on port work is there any one else in the UK that will port saws eg 572xp or ms462.

    Would spud do the work if you hand delivered and collected the saw? Assuming that you live close enough for the journey to be worth it. Is it just problems with couriers that are limiting his operations? I can well understand that.

    One way to find out is for someone else to ask spud,

    wasn’t there another person that used to post in the whats on your bench thread.. maybe someone could ask in that thread.


    I don’t really follow Arbtalk that much….

    Spud replied. Yes, he is winding down towards early retirement. He is accepting local and hand delivered/collected work only. He does not wish to recommend any other UK porters.

    If you want a spud ported saw then you will have to make the journey to hand deliver and collect it.

    This is the beginning of the end of an era.
