Zx81 Joystick adapter
ZX Spectrum Joystick Interface
VIC-20 or PET RS232 cable (Not completely sure. Does have a MAX232 TTL chip)

Would you be inclined to send that down to me (just the 32x and at least one 32x game) ?

Reason being is that last time I did a cable for this it didn't work properly, and I don't have a 32x to test with myself.

If you're using it with an MD1 (as opposed to MD2) I may need that as well, if you're willing.

Not retro - but a complete bargain!

SingBox Pro at the carboot. £5!!!!! Its missing its PSU but thats not a problem.

Did see a Spectrum +2 grey and lots of MegaDrives, PS1, Xbox etc. Nothing too exciting.
