Re: Job lot at auction

Great to see you've got it finished now Tom - are the zebras original? Because I think I'd get rid of them! The climbers appear to be Indian gentlemen, and Zebras don't live in Asia. Just saying !!ESCAPE!!
BTW do you still have the first machine?

Re: Fruite Whirle

Baloons' at 0:21 must be a rarity. Yes, although its rarity has just gone down by around 33%. I owned one for a good number of years, although I no longer have it. There are two collectors up north who have each owned one for many years, and as far as I am aware still have them, so that makes three...
