Thank you Nigel. Makes my life less confusing. :)
As a side issue I too use coins for basing quite often. I think we are going to find it more difficult to get quantity of 2p pieces. I get the odd bag from the bank, but unlike days of yore they need to seek "authorisation" and go off to the vault for a  single bag.

They're not coins rather 2mm MDF. Use it for all my basing now as too much variation in thickness with coins/washers for my liking. Costs a bit more but I'm happier with the consistency.

I quite like the price of the 2p bases, and they add some heft too.

I'd better get down the bank and bring home some more, before Martin buys up the entire UK stock...

I once bought a hundred steel washers the same size as 2p pieces from a "fastenings supplier", the only snag was they cost over 3.00 :(. I then went back to 2p pieces as more economical. More recently I have found that Wilko have a pick and mix type approach to washers, nuts and bolts where you pay a fixed price for a bag full and this is an economical way to buy 2p and 1p sized washers. It's worth a look if you're near a Wilko.

Best wishes,
