What's with all these NOS cooks? Admittedly most of them seam to use the same picture so I'm not sure they're genuine, but there's one on ebay.uk, one of ebay.de, been dozens on ebay in the last month. Is there a factory in china with a bit of taste pumping these out?

i think the seller may be a forum member.
he's correct in one respect, i'm not sure many more new cooks cranks will appear on ebay.

But it's been a number of different sellers, two in essex, one in germany and this fella (unless they are all just reselling the cheap ones that were sold for £30 a pop a few weeks back and making some profit)

Yeah, and when I emailed the original seller he said he'd just sold the last pair... :cry:
