One is an STE but even at £60+p&p would make it an expensive bitter, if it worked.

Just bought two STFM's for 60 including p&p, one for spares, one for the collection :-)
Nice :dualthumbup:

I also see that the evilBay auction in this thread did not get any bids :)

Now listed at £40. They should sell at that but I'd hate to think what they look like internally.

For a brief moment I felt tempted to offer £20 just to see what they look like inside :-? It was very brief.

That said a lot of work to make them anywhere near as respectable. Don’t think you could make one good one out of those three.

Exactly, just 3 parts donors as Paul said earlier. More fluff dust and rust than useable parts I bet.

Yes, I bet the boards were all rotted out or the seller would have provided a picture of them. He'd been better off just providing pictures of the boards if they were not rotted.
