Re: UK bandits painted cases??

It will be the one. It's a lot better now of course, but the coin is set to bypass the esculator, operating a little more like the gooseneck version.

Re: Bringing them back from the grave!

Fantastic looking job...superb. I agree with the above post, that it doesn't matter about the cost of a machine. It's the satisfaction in completing a project, whether it be a £50 piece or £10000.
