I have workshop facilities at Battlesbridge and stock some spares in the shop. Spares in the shop are only available "over the counter" when I am in attendance. See below.

  • Spares are available by mail order. For most small parts, post and packing is 3.00 1st class to UK only.
  • Payment for mail order spares is by credit/debit card only.

Most spares are second-hand and vary in quality from "as seen" to "reconditioned".

"Reconditioned" means a part which has been overhauled to working condition. It does not necessarily  mean overhauled to new condition.

All spares are subject to availability. Please enquire about any parts not listed, as I may have them.

I endeavour to keep to the above prices, but they are liable to change without notice

If you wish to place an order, or have an enquiry, please read all below.

Please call me (Gavin Payne) by telephone if you wish to place an order for a telephone, spare parts, or have an enquiry.  I can usually be reached 9.00am to 5.45pm any day, including weekends. Calls in the evening are not appreciated and could make me very grumpy. The number is 01245 400601.

I am in the shop most Saturday and Sunday mornings between 10.00 and 12.00. These are the only times I am in the shop for the sale of spare parts, conversions and repairs.  Conversions and repairs can often be carried out while you wait.

If you have a telephone that you want to know more about, or have it repaired or converted, please have it right next to you when you call. Please also have a selection of small flat bladed screwdrivers to hand.
 I do not give advice for DIY repairs or conversions or valuations of any kind over the telephone or by email. Please bring the telephone to my shop for assessment, but always call me first before bringing it in.
