Re: Allwin information needed

I'm fairly certain that the black edging paint is original. I've owned several BM Co. allwins with it, most being the smaller models in what I called the "wedding cake" style case that was definitely Art Deco.

Re: Bob Klepner

Our hobby has just lost one of the greats. I got to know Bob over the years with several projects that he helped me on, including making missing parts for one of my machines.

Re: Photo Weigh card identified

I can understand why these weight machines were doomed to fail. It's not bad enough that you had weighers that spoke your weight for all nearby to hear, now you had a card with your bloody picture on it and your weight printed.
