    Sweet, cheers. I ended up buying a similar one, just a bit smaller

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a motion activated, USB powered light? I'd like to put one outside of our flat door as it is pitch black in the stairwell

    A few things for sale - all prices including shipping from Scotland.

    Nitto B352AA Albatross Bar (purchased from here)
    Essentially unused - fitted into a stem but never ridden. Scratches are just from that initial fitting, and the bars were bought new. Sold the frame they were destined for, and unlikely to use now.
    £45 Sold!

    Amoeba Bars and Stem (original thread here)
    Briefly used (by me) - maybe a week or so? Potentially less, as I found them a bit too narrow for how I ride now. Very cool though, and hopefully a nice fit for someone else's project.
    £10 for bars sold , £3 for stem, around £22 for both shipped.

    Women's SealSkinz Highland Gloves (like these)
    I don't know what I was thinking when I bought these - I was probably just excited to see some gloves on sale. But, I didn't clock these were women's gloves, and I didn't try them on, so, surprise surprise, they don't fit. They've been sitting unused for 2 years, tags still on.
    £55 on the tag, but half price when purchased, so let's say £20 delivered. No pics as they are in as-new condition

    Spexcel Lightweight rain jacket (like this)
    What can I say, it's semi-transparent and I was intrigued. Size small, sadly it's just a smidge too small, especially on the shoulders. I'm about 172.98cm tall, I can give additional measurements if required. Packs into an impressively small bundle.
    No pics as it has just been tried on and not used, though I removed the tags.
    Let's call it £15 shipped

    Despite having a foam shop nearby, I think that many of the suppliers are out in the middle of nowhere, so it wouldn't be so easy to buy scraps and off cuts. That would be ideal though!

    When I've got my workshop set up I'll be getting various samples in, as there's a bunch of materials I have bookmarked but not yet had the chance to experiment with.

    Evazote is hard to find if you're in the UK. ProFabrics has some different foams from what I can remember - most closed cell foams ought to be fine. You can also reuse old camping mats - you might be able to pick some up for cheap locally.

    I've been wanting to try latex foam, which is apparently 'natural', as I have a feeling normal foam is not particularly sustainable. Anyone have any experience with latex foam/know about the sustainability of regular foam?

    Interesting, thanks all. We've got a tub of the original wall paint in a cupboard, so I might just suggest traditional hooks.

    I've moved to a new flat and I'd like to hang some pictures up. Normally I'd just nail in some picture hooks but my girlfriend is keen to use adhesive hooks as we're renting.

    Has anyone had any (positive/negative) experience with them before?
