    Default A WARNING RIP OFF Claymore by Bensley

    This weekend I was asked to update a Claymore. Unfortunately this Claymore is a copy made by Bensley Electronics, and somehow they are using a rip of Claymore 2 circuit board.
    If you are offered one of these beware it is not made by me.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.....but that doesn't make it any more palatable.

    Are these new or were they produced many years ago?

    Assuming it's the same company, it looks as though they have not been in business for a while. Different address, but still Essex. Means nothing as could be a director's address.

    It may be stating the obvious but doesn't copyright apply?

    Intellectual property rights?

    Reputational damage if its complete pants or heaven forbid unsafe....

    This kind of thing is not good for the industry or our hobby.

    Suspect it arises from far east somewhere. What a rip off. Probably does not even pass basic electric tests.

    Whoever made this did not spend time on how locations on UK streets are numbered. Certainly should not be using roman numerals. And postcode is missing.

    Bensley Electronics was based in Canvey Island and was dissolved in Sept. 1998 - I assume as the owner retired.

    Sorry that you have been affected by this Colin.
