Re: Where have all the slots gone?

Brian, why bother with an Allwin, not much point....

I see the elephant house site is being updated at the moment, maybe some news will come out once back online. Also maybe there would be appetite for an early Coventry auction in March, if the suggested rollout of the Covid jabs goes to plan

Re: Duomat restorations

Well after finishing four machines with a parts machine left and a future project machine needing a new cabinet made, I moved onto the next project, a Selecta, or the German name, Prazisa, bought blind 7 years ago... I knew one part was broken after getting into the locks machine after buying, but w...

Re: Duomat restorations

I have never used sandpaper on this type of item, but use wire wools reducing the fineness with polishing compounds. Only using polishing wheel if high shine is possible as they are bloody messy....there could be staining in the metal itself of course

Re: Adjust reel brakes

You might be right. It looks like they may have been bent previously. Maybe the middle one needs to be further over to the left, but I cannot see the ridges properly on the timing bar. The timing bar should her steps for each of the brake arms, graduated based on the order.
