    I have from my Father in MINT condition -
    1 x Parker Bell 500SP PAT Tester, complete with lead, leather carry case
    Instructional Video, Instruction handbook & quick Instruction cards
    Packs of test record sheet, and test stickers.

    1 x Parket Bell Quick Earth Finder probe.

    1 x Parket Bell 1000 SP Extension lead tester, with instructions

    The first item is out of test and would need calibration.
    I have no use for these, anybody able to advise if there is a 2nd hand market for them ?, and if so what would they be worth.
    Prefer to sell without getting re-calibration done.

    I bought a complete PAT testing kit at a boot sale for £15 about 5 years ago. Don’t know what make it is as it’s in work somewhere. Seems a decent bit of kit. Looking online, they are £236 brand new. It looks like the one I have.

    I went to work for a firm which had pat tester never been used, so send for calibration but it turned out it could not be set to modern standards.

    So have 6 months pat testing not worth paper written on.

    I have checked with the manufacturer - they offer calibration for this unit (as do local calibration companies) but it costs £75 not sure it's worth me investing in calibration, just to sell.
