Re: Kraft Machines Brochure and price list 1966-67

I saw that one on ebay also... but it does need a lot more than tender loving care to get it working... I think a Paramedic of electrickery is required... and a case surgeon also...

Re: Roma Flotilla

I totally agree with you TF ... looking at the line up there is something magical about them ... thats why i like Ditchburn juke boxes and Jamiesons machines ... not the prettiest things compared to a Wurlitzer or a Caille but there is something magical about them that i love ... enjoy them Dicky
