Post by: dannyboy on January 10, 2018, 11:24:37 am
Came across this heat resistant pad this morning, which may be of use to those who solder PCBs etc. -

A long address! I have had a couple of things from 'Banggood' in the past and have been quite satisfied.

For any men in a relationship, a word of caution re 'Banggood': do not let your BH browse their men's pants! Since I showed MBH some of Banggood's novelty pants, she keeps threatening to buy me some! :uneasy: :help: :worried:

I must admit that they do have some 'interesting' items other than electrical stuff - not that I have had a proper look you understand.   :no: :-[
