We aim to despatch orders within 48 hours but as a small, specialist supplier this may not be possible at times of high demand. If the order is needed urgently - for example to complete a project, or in advance of a particular day (for a workshop, or as a gift), please let us know via the ‘Any Special Instructions’ box at the Checkout and we will try to give it priority.

To be able to bring you a wide range of products we deal with hundreds of suppliers. At any time we may be temporarily out of stock of an item, and we can also occasionally experience difficulty in obtaining even quite run-of-the-mill products. If this is likely to cause a delay we will notify you. When appropriate, orders will be part supplied and we will place items we cannot immediately supply on Back Order, to be despatched as soon as possible. The total carriage charged for all parcels despatched as part of any one order will not exceed the maximum charge as shown for that country.

PLEASE NOTE: We aim to despatch orders as soon as possible using the method requested by you, the customer.   Once the order has passed into the hands of Royal Mail or the courier, the length of time taken for delivery is out of our control.   We will, of course, do everything we can to trace delayed orders, but we cannot be held responsible for delays within the distribution system.

UPDATE: 11th January 2021
Along with many other UK companies, we have regretfully suspended all supplies to European Union countries via the online shop.   This is due to confusion around post-Brexit trade rules as well as the resulting transport delays. This position will be reviewed as and when there is some clarification.
