Hi Nigel,

I just wanted to say thanks again, the can arrived on Friday and it works perfectly. I’ve had mine since I first stated in graphic design, which I used for rubber cement thinner, in the mid 80’s and was so happy to find something I thought would be long gone by now. So glad you value the vintage pieces and have them available for sale.

"Dear Nigel,
I am sending you this email to say what fantastic service I received from you, the item arrived very quick and was packaged very securely.
The item itself is fantastic, and I am sure my husband will be delighted with it, as I ordered it for a birthday present.
Many thanks"

"Super good service with prompt delivery, well packaged tools in immaculate condition. Highly recommended."
