I have in my possession a pair of Mecano, single-bed, raisers, complete with bracketry, castors and controller which we have used for a couple of clients in the past and which were returned to me when the clients had no further need of them. I will gladly get them dispatched to any REMAP panel who can find a use for them providing they pay for transportation. They are five or six years old but haven’t been used very much by either client and are in very good condition. I think they have a 10″ lift  but I can send a detailed specification to anyone interested.

 Ian Cole (Southampton) has just passed this information on for sharing.

I have just found out about this software called ‘CADSTAR schematics’ which is being offered as a free download until 31st. March 2016.  I have found this to be a very user-friendly electronics drawing package which normally costs £635, this is the latest version.

It can be obtained from the website below.  It requirea the members MAC address and in the user details box called ‘company’, I filled this in as “REMAP (Charity remap.org.uk)”, which worked for me.

We have recently had two items returned to us because the client using them had died.  They are units to convert ceiling mounted hoist pneumatic control units to string operation, please refer to photos attached.  We intend to store these units but as we have only had two clients requesting these in the last 10 years, I do not have much hope of us using them. 

If another panel has a use for either item please contact Ian ianvdiana@aol.com

We have received this email from Gary Evans of Demand gary.evans@demand.org.uk very kindly offering a lathe to anyone who would like it. Please contact Gary.


We’re moving stuff around here and will be getting rid of a fine Colchester Student Lathe.

It is in full working order although the auto lock lever needs to be held in place using a spring or a short bungie cord.

It comes complete with a 6″ and 12″ face place, 3 jaw chuck and chuck spanner.

We’d love to see it go to a good home. Its done stirling service.

Best regards

“OT (activity) chairs for cannibalising


A special needs school have four old surplus indoor activity chairs (also called OT chairs) which are going to the skip if homes are not found. They are a bit old and have been offered to other potential users without success. They seem sound but are missing their mains charging leads. Need to be collected from Reading, preferably before 19 Dec. Nice chassis with castors, adjustable seat and electric lifting mechanism which could be cannibalised for a Remap project.


A description of this type of chair can be found here:


Please contact Robert Monk of the Berks panel if you are interested and for more information.
