Anyone interested in doing a group purchase here? I'd like one but I don't
need ten and the cost would break my budget. According to my calculations
7.50 pounds would convert to $12.30 and 20 pounds would be $32.78 (how do
you get the pound symbol--my keyboard doesn't have it). =20
It could be done for $16 each. Any takers?
