From their catalog-

"Holmbury was founded in 1982 when it designed and produced
the first working flat face couplings. These couplings became
extremely popular with many of the world's major construction
industry OEMs thanks to their robust construction and longevity."

"Carbon steel body, treated to increase hardness and
corrosion resistance, nitrile seals........... couplings are
Trivalent plated."

Here're some 1" BSP units I had from a.n.other guy - listed as used/display, but I can not see that they've ever seen oil and are like brand new - he has more!
Cost me 15 quid a set delivered after a bit of 'negotiation' !!







I'm waiting to hear back from him on what else he has!!
could do with some 3/4" and then I reckon I'm all QC-ed up then for a while!!

Otherwise I'll just get some from Holmbury!

Looks like earlier version of holmbury as the ones they have now got lots of grooves cut around the body the male you have seems to have the Matt grey where the female is either the old chromium 6 coating or the in between coating that didn't work when chromium 6 was banned

I had two sets of these Lefty and both were identical !
They look brand new so perhaps old stock from some where?
Ain't gonna quibble at 15 quid a set!!
Breaker circuit on't 'Drema runs off 'em.

Here yer go Gra - arrived in the post this morning.
If you were close by to these guys you'd save yerself another 3.43 each on P&P, putting the QCs at 5.80 ea. + VAT

It don't get any cheaper, for the real McCoy!!!!!



Just realised that these are listed as M & F on the invoice DER!!!!! and they haven't charged P&P at all on 'em!!!!!!!!!!

That's the ones Dave. Also got Jack to put up some other sizes too!
These are too cheap not to stock up with spares on.
Always the way; when you want one you have to pay through the nose!!!
Mention the Druid - I might get some freebies , but'd be happy seeing everyone else benefit from my spot of luck with the find

Anyone lucky enough to be able to collect instead of having to pay postage is gonna have some SERIOUSLY cheap fittings!!

Here's the link again, in case!! also look at other items
