I would PayPal you postage (plus anything additional) if you would be willing to pack it up and send it to an address in the US (not mine but Adrian's who lives in Oregon I believe). I don't think it would need a power supply since he couldn't use it anyway (it seems you only had 2 PU's for 4 QL's and likely they were UK). Royal Mail can actually be pretty reasonable in my experience.
It would be neat to see him try and repair a completely broken QL (so the more non-working the better -- i.e. bad keyboard membranes are just a simple part replacement but no screen and no boot-up would be perfect). He's got an audience of close to 100K so great to have that many folks getting a look at a QL. Plus he'd likely fix it so that would rescue a dead one :-/
That should be no problem, I will get in the garage soon but at the moment it is to cold and wet outside to pull all the boxes out. Yes only 2 spare PSUs to hand but may find another in the garage . Its really good to find a guy dedicated to repair and restore this old hardware and help keep the interest.
As for shipping yes Royal Mail is good especially to the USA as they partner with USPS.
