I just wasted 3/4 of an hour trying to post an advert. Volunteers at the Helicopter Museum have been slowly getting an Atlas lathe back into working and sellable order. The proceeds will buy workshop equipment for us to use. I filled out the details of the machine and information for any prospective buyer, plus the asking price and a flag came up saying something like "add a valid price". When I eventually managed to cancel that and listed the advert, the whole lot seems to have vanished. Does this count as a trade advert? What have I done wrong?

I think it needs a .00 at the end

I would never had thought of that, Jason, thanks. I will have another go tomorrow, shame, I had remembered everything about the lathe when I wrote out the advert.

Meanwhile, there are some pictures in my album, igp 3015 to igp 3024, if anybody wants a look.
