Free Next Working Day shipping on all UK Orders

Based in Essex England, I have been collecting Scientific Instruments and Vintage fishing tackle since 1998.

Collecting brings its own rewards through the enjoyment of actually using items such as fishing tackle, ( I still fish regularly and often use vintage tackle whenever I can) or simply researching background information on various scientific finds.

In my early days of collecting, I soon became aware of the pitfalls that lay in wait for the inexperienced collector. It was an expensive lesson to learn, but with many years of very enjoyable researching and shared advice with fellow collectors, I can confidently guarantee all items offered on this website are 100% authentic. I will offer an honest description of each item, including condition and will not make wild claims that cannot be substantiated.

Since the creation of this site, which originally started as a hobby, public interest in scientific instruments has steadily grown. My experience in collecting has led to the website becoming a valuable source of reference material, as well as a place to find a variety of quality instruments at reasonable prices. Like a lot of internet sites, overheads can be kept low, so I see no reason to charge excessive prices, and unlike some I do not make payment surcharges if you use the options shown on the order page.

I take pride in helping both Institutions and private clients to build their collections and more recently have supplied period instruments to Film & TV studios, including supplying instruments for the 2017 film 'The Lost City of Z' starring Charlie Hunnam and Sienna Miller and the 2019 film 'The Aeronauts' starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.

Previous credits include BBC's Bargain Hunt and the Channel 4 Celebrity Big Brother series.

Above all, the good reputation of the website is my foremost priority and this is reflected in my dealings with ALL customers. For customer satisfaction, I have no hesitation in offering an unconditional 14 day money back guarantee if for any reason you are unhappy with any aspect of your purchase. So click here to go back to the Home page, and see if we share the same tastes!

Thanks for stopping by.
