Used / Second-Hand Items
RWAP Software supply a wide range of new and used items, mainly for the older type of computers. Although we concentrate mainly on Sinclair computers (ZX Spectrum, ZX80, ZX81, QL, Z88 and their derivatives), we sometimes have a stock of miscellaneous items of leads, hardware and software for other computers. It is worth keeping an eye on these pages, as they tend to be updated at least once a week.
If you are looking for second hand items for use with a modern Windows based computer, we apologise, as you are not in luck - we deal mainly with retro computing. Due to the fast moving PC computer market, with better hardware and software being released all the time, it is often easier to purchase a brand new machine than purchase second hand bits (which may or may not be compatible with your system).
Second Hand Items - Testing and Shipping
All items are listed exclusive of post and packing. Our second hand items are in good condition (unless stated) and are all fully tested before shipping. We ensure that they are well protected against the rigours of parcel delivery and send them by Royal Mail First Class post, Parcelforce 48 hour delivery (in the UK) or Parcel2Go (whichever is the cheaper option). Parcel2Go certainly seems the cheapest option for sending large parcels both inland and abroad.
Although we attempt to keep our lists as current as possible, please check on availability of any item prior to ordering. We also offer a 14 day money back warranty on all goods (excluding shipping charges), provided that they are returned in the same condition and packaging.
Due to the large number of items we now have in stock, we have split each category into a separate page - please follow one of the links to the second hand items in the left hand frame.
If you have an old program and it is defective in some way, it is always worth checking with us, as we are happy to make working copies from software which have in stock (you need to provide proof that you have the original). We may also be able to provide an updated version of some EPROMs - please let us know your requirements.
We have recently added some second hand QLs, fully tested and working (including the keyboards) and for Spectrum users, we have a small stock of the rare ZX Interface 1s.
We are also currently adding a wide range of items for the Commodore 64 (C64) computer - we also have plenty more not listed - if you are looking for anything in particular, please ask..
We also keep a stock of various manuals, including instruction books for software, hardware and other computers. Please ask if you are looking for a particular instruction book - we may be able to provide a copy. Since we realise that we cannot hold stock of everything which someone may be looking for, we have included a snapshot of the current items for sale in each category on eBay (where we list some of our own items).
If you have any other items you are looking for, please use our Wanted Ads page.
If you have purchased a second hand Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Sinclair QL or software for the QL (from someone else), and find that the keyboard is not working or it has some other fault, we are always willing to assist and can point you to reputable repairers, as well as supply some second hand parts or copies of the working software. In particular, we can supply keyboard membranes and keyboard mats for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and a much wider range of stock for the Sinclair QL, including all the parts required to make up the keyboard. Our own products carry a full 14 day money back guarantee (excluding the post and packing charges).
