Am I missing something here?

This Machine sold today for £1050 plus commission taking it to just over £1300. I was ready to bid and thought my 500 plus commission would seal it. Is is not just a Mills High top with a added front bit? Is it rare? I assumed it would be a copy as Brooklands is a UK interest.

Re: Wulff Optima EM

I have this carcass stashed away. I will check if it has what you need.

Charrington / Mills Bandit

I was watching this Charrington bandit on a auction and have a question about it.... This looks like a Mills Hi Top to me but I guess it is a copy. Was this made in the UK from Mills parts or were the parts made in the UK under license from mills, by who, or is there another story? Where is the Char...

Readers Lives'

Reading through some posts the other day I found one from a member questioning why we seem reluctant to put photos of our collections on here. I am going to rectify that by posting a photo of my small collection and I will wait for the many fantastic photos to appear. I did have many more but fell o...

How do I clean this?

Just wondered if anyone knows a way to get this part back to looking good? I have tried very fine wet and dry but that left a mat finish. I have tried abrasive polish as in T-cut but that didn't do much. I am sure someone on here has restored this type of metal before.....

Re: Decorative edge trim for an Exacta

So finally I have finished my Exacta with the new case I have made. I am quite pleased with it as wood work is not my first skill. I think the trim looks great. It took ages to put on as the corners would cause the bit before and after to lift so had to clamp the strip down as I fitted it.
