Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Well it's just fantastic and yes I'll definitely be using it, I will however need someone to give me an idea who to use for printing and what exactly to ask for when seeking to get it printed, though I won't be doing that until the other part is done and I'm very happy to wait two weeks. You enjoy y...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

I'd like to add I'm grateful either way, I've had the machine 10 years and it's stood in the corner most of that time with me wondering if I'd ever get it finished and within days of finding this site things are happening. Thanks to this forum, for all the input, the good work and what I've seen so ...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Bloody Hell it's looking amazing and you did the coin (which looks miles better even though you said you weren't doing it) - it's better than factory finish.

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Crikey I didn't realise how long it took, I'm working on my car at the moment and getting nowhere, which is such a waste of time. The green is perfect though now I've seen it, they've all got to be green now, sorry. As for the colour where it was white before and now off white, I'm not really sure a...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Green shamrocks are great, seeing as I seem to be making this my own and you're not happy with the chrome, can we then make the borders black, the shamrocks green and the threepenny bit gold on a white background (it was white anyway) but threepenny bits were never white in reality. I'm just not sur...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Sounds interesting and worth googling to find out more, many thanks.

Yes that red is excellent, thanks.

I'm very happy to hear what others think, the shamrocks would probably look good in bright green.

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

I still think the other stars might be a black degrading into chrome. Honestly, I've now stood staring at these for far too long and there is a clear difference between the black (which hasn't degraded) to the parts that I think are chrome and have degraded. I wish you could see them close. I'll go...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

I have to ask, what is the other machine in your photo? ... If it turns out to be a gas meter mounted on a sewing machine treadle with a hat stretcher on the top, I shall immediately award myself ten points and have an early night. Lol , you sort of got only one part partly right. Firstly you misse...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

Ive made a start on the top glass... That's looking great. I've gone and looked again and taken another photo and you can clearly see (though not so much on this image) my fingers and the lens of camera reflecting in the chrome. However, as you said, I do now believe the bottom 2 stars are black, a...

Re: Bell Fruit Three Penny Supreme

I can't see a lower light tube but surely there's enough light cast down from the upper one to light the lower panel? There are two light tubes, though not fitted back on the machine yet. The chrome mirror plastic idea is to be seen through the new decal through to the outside / front of the glass ...
