I remember Harold English when doing up his imported German machines would make them 20p machines as this was closed to...

If not maybe the horizontal slides not moving back far enough to release slides, maybe poor spring on lower or upper fingers or somet...

Re: Jennings Witch and Black Cat

Re: Unusual UK conversion on a Jennings

The Jennings or should I say repro Jennings with Jubilee mech finished today at the Adams Partridge sale and made an incredible £1240 :shock: I am sure when sold by the company who made them, they sold them for less than that....
