Any1 interested i have reserved one at Chelmsford.
There maybe more.

Also, I dunno if I want to drive 25 miles and find parking in Chelsford & on a Sat to collect mine before 5pm Tomorrow.
Quick check locally shows in stock in Manchester Arndale and Hyde so they are out there
Picked one up at Erith in Kent, they had 2 in stock as well!!

Looks a sturdy bit of kit, comes with all the bits and a nice heavy case as well, can't go wrong for the price!
Does anyone want the one in Chelmsford?/
