We originally operated a chandlery,we moved 'up north' just after Lowestofts fishing fleet vanished along with politicians promises,taking our customer base with it. To stay afloat we started selling tools, mainly imperial based ones online. Older cars use BSW or  BSF (whitworth and British standard fine) or UNF/UNC fittings or BA (British Association) on smaller stuff and we sold these worldwide. We also sold metric tools for more modern vehicles but I always felt more at home with inches than the metric malarky, if it was good enough for Brunel,Telford and Stephenson etc. Some of the older pages from our store are archived.There are pages about Lowestofts beam trawlers and fishing fleets etc here, the harbour and fish auctions etc here. and our old ships chandlers here. I am now pretty much retired and spend my spare time messing about with various old cars.
