Internet Search engines - this may help!
« on: May 15, 2016, 10:02:22 pm »

Hello,

This might be of use to other Mayhemer's so I thought I would share my recent experience.

My first point whenever I search the internet  is Google. I recently had cause to look for a Graupner Fittings set which I could not find anywhere - not really surprising.

I then Googled the phrase "German Search Engine" and used some of the search engine results to look for the elusive fittings set. I moved on and Googled "Netherlands" search engines and using one of these found the Fittings Kit in stock (confirmed by email with the store) and have been able to place an order.

So if you are looking for Robbe or Graupner or other kit then this may work for you - maybe the store I found would have been on the Google search but it was not obvious.

For example this is Yahoo Netherlands  https://nl.search.yahoo.com/

If I had not gone this route I don't think I would have found the fittings kit...

Maybe another Mayhemer has some search suggestions  - if so please do share it with us. Happy searching...

Regards
Jonathan

Hi Ned,

Can't remember the year I got my license - I was a teenager at the time - still active polluting the airwaves.

On my trawl on the net I found a Robbe Najade , a San Diego and a few others waiting to be built
