Hi Dave

I went on a crusade (felt like one) a year or so ago to find one. I ended up buying the one, via a TT member, that was on an episode of Shed and Buried. Despite being incredibly simply in operation it is brilliantly designed although mine was pretty worn out. It is close to working again after repairing/replacing/making numerous parts. After buying it I have only seen one other for sale which was on ebay.

My advice would be to contact one of the 'enthusiasts/collectors' who can be found via an internet search, as they will probably know what is about. I went down this route after I bought mine in order to track down a parts diagram and a manual. The gentleman I got in touch with has been incredibly helpful to me with his information and advice. Considering how many of these were in use in the 1950-70s, it is really surprising how few seem to have survived and that there is so little information available on the internet.

Cheers Carl.
