Below is a photo of a "Mills Takens" (usually called an Extra Bell) made in 1930......
Well, that's certainly news to me. To the best of my knowledge, the Extra Bells are re-vamps and certainly not produced in 1930.

However, I am intrigued to know why you're dropping voltage down to 110v - Europe, including Germany, has always operated at roughly the same voltage as...

For the benefit of everyone else, here it is: Hello again.......I hadn't expected to have to send out another update so soon, but it's important you read this, just to be prepa...

Re: Coventry Spring Auction (24/03/19)

After a few unforeseen set-backs, I've finally got the finished catalogue ready to view online. There's still a few pictures to add, and in a day or two there will also be a PDF text only catalogue available to download.

Re: My half penny play Payramid

Personally I do not think around £1500 was too much for that machine - enjoy it.
