bit of a long shot, in the throes of replacing road springs and ordered a Sealey AK3842 internal spring compressor as recommended elsewhere on this site.
Nobody but nobody seems to actually stock this item - they all get it from Sealey who won't have one until December!

Does anyone have one for sale please? (or even maybe the posh Klann or Sykes Pickavant units, but don't really want to pay a lot of money for what will hopefully be a one off)

Where in the country are you? Perhaps someone close to you has one you could borrow?

Hi,
I would seriously consider paying a good indie, like MBS or the like to do it as even second hand these items are expensive, probably more than what it would cost you to have them fitted, and to be honest if there were any for sale they would be snapped up within minutes of being posted.
You say it will be a one off anyway. They can be done without their use, though they do take a bit longer.
There was a post done in the last few weeks regarding changing coil springs on a 210 without a spring compressor, if you do a search i,m sure you will find it quite quickly, or some other kind sole will post a link to it.
