Thread: Readers' Workshop Special

My thoughts exactly.  The cost of postage was the deciding factor for me to try and purchase a copy locally.
I have now obtained a copy from WH Smiths, although I had to ask for it as it was in the store room, not out on the shelf.
To be fair, it may have just arrived in the store, and had not been put out on display.
Thread: acid pickle

Very unlikely you will get battery acid from Halfords or any other motor factor.  Most batteries these days are supplied ready filled and sealed.
Even motorcycle batteries (or the more modern ones anyway) are supplied with their own acid pack with which you fill the battery.

I have used 'One-Shot' drain cleaner from B&Q, which is pretty much just sulphuric acid.
Diluted it down to about 10:1 with water, and it works a treat.
Was about £5 for a litre, but it has lasted me about 6 years so far, and is still half full.
As others have said, take care, as it is nasty stuff.

Hi all.
Has anybody actually managed to buy a copy of the Readers' Workshop special?
I have been into several branches of WH Smiths across the south and no sign of it in any of them.
Less than helpful staff have no idea about availability either.
