Re: Holy allwin Batman!

Salter weighing machine

Rather good looking 'heavy weight' machine on eBay with a rather heavy weight price tag of £11,499 plus £200 postage. :shock:

If you look ( very close up ) at the photo of the Bryan's Works Stand for 1973 in Paul Braithwaite's book, it shows a Fivewin and Tencup with circular cam locks on the door and cashbox door and a Pilwin in str...
