Re: Which clown?

Hi Guys..Thanks for the info regarding the wood. I tend to agree and have cleaned up the case as best I can for now and will apply polish next. The sides are fairly good but the top has a couple of black stains, one of which looks the shape of a 'spam' tin!!. Think it must have been sitting on it fo...

Re: Which clown?

Hi all, I generally have been collecting Mills bandits for the past couple of years but got the 'allwin/drop case' bug at the Coundon Club auction just gone. (Fantastic do once again by the way!) Bought a couple that have certainly re kindled the fire again and also bought a bit of a case on fleebay...

Re: Last part of bandit cycle fails

Glad you fixed the problem. Something I'm sure I've come across after completing a rebuild. Couldn't initially understand why it didn't quite seem to finish its cycle. I went through every adjustment, spring, lever and pad/stop really concluding that everything was correct. Turns out a microscopic d...

I’ve found eBay useful for that sort of thing as I hate replacing with modern incorrect bits even down to a screw!.

Re: Import duty, shipping costs, etc. from USA

I seem to remember a thread regarding import duties etc. There was a 'duty code' mentioned reducing 20% to 5%. I tried it and it worked on a rather expensive machine from the States.

Re: Artwork on side of Mills bandits

Hi, Yes they were original to the earlier machines. There are plenty of pics on the web. I've got several machines that I would like to refinish the gilding to. I'd found a 'euro' site that actually had the stensils to do three different versions but when I recently tried to access the site again......
