I waited for the £1 offer to return, listed many items again and noticed that at the bottom of the listing page, in very small print, "you will...

Spit pins and castellated nuts

Some advice/comment please. Some stub axles have just one hole for a split pin. Some have two at about 30 degree angle to one another.

Some Daimler, some Lanchester and some "other" but what to with it after the cars from which the "stuff" came have passed on.

Does anyone recognise these?
