Many thanks to spooky1966 for trying to help, his box is a bit too modern but may get back if i can't find the one i'm after, thanks spooky. (y)

Anyone else able to offer one of these Matchbox's? Thanks in advance.

If you are looking for a matchbox I would definitely get a more modern one than that as the 19mm legs are terrible compared to the later 25mm legs you will find they are much more stable. I would look at maybe an SX4 or an Azur as they are very similar in size, weight and layout to the one in the picture but much more stable and easier to get attachments for

Hi I’m unsure of how far you want to travel but try calling Paul Cooper at Wiltshire Angling in Trowbridge 01225 763835 he has a couple of those style of boxes for sale 2nd hand. Glad you got a trolley, shame you weren’t looking 6 months ago, I let a boss 6 drawer with wheels handle and a load of attachments go for pennies.

It is a shame........i actually would have considered one as they're quite clever!

It's definitely a long way but I'll give Paul a ring tomorrow and see if anything suites the bill, you never know. Thanks for your help. (y)
