The purpose of these pages is to advise customers of recent (& prospective) changes to Price Lists on this web site.

All of our Price Lists remain current irrespective of any embedded dates.

There is a powerful Google search engine on the Home Page which will search the whole web site, including all price lists.

In addition, Adobe Reader also has a powerful "find" facility to search an open individual price list.

Price Lists are updated periodically when necessary when we add substantial new stock or sell existing stock.  Some lists will be updated regularly whilst others, where we are acquiring no new stock, will be updated infrequently.  We do not update lists for every single transaction so there may be occasional minor stock-outs.

This page will list the most significant changes which have been made to our price lists published on this site in the last 2 years.  Minor changes are not notified.
