Re: J.F Frantz MFG. Co. Long Shot restoration and top pendant

So after a short hiatus I have finally got around to finishing my Long Shot kicker/ catcher. After scarfing in new oak and restoring the cabinet I managed to source a new top marque from Crow River Trading (highly recommendable and great communication). I also managed to persuade my old Man to machi...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

I'll miss the Coventry auction this year, first one I've missed in 7 years. I like to stay in Coventry the night before, have a curry at one of the best curry houses I know (and I know a LOT), get to the club early to move a few things around for the two J's, claim my usual table and comfy chair, a...
