Re: Bandit Stand

40 odd years ago the Design Manager where I worked walked past a drawing in progress that showed for scale, a man stood by a large industrial boiler. His only comment to the Design Engineer was "I hope that man is to British Standard, 5 foot 9 and right handed". I have never bothered to find out wh...

Re: Info wanted on using an old Patent to get something made from said Patent but where?

I have no experience of this whatsoever. But generally it would seem that China is able to copy almost anything, and cheaply. I think the repro Allwins were made in China. You're right, just about everything is made there now, it's just a case of finding the right manufacturer at the right quality ...

As a recent newbie I find a few things that the forum are up against to keep it interesting and active. Probably a swearword on here is Facebook, no forum can compete with it, it's fast, virtually instant, has likes or not, easy to use, shares easy, videos and photos are easy placed, watched etc.......

Re: Info wanted on using an old Patent to get something made from said Patent but where?

Having looked further at the patent it was originally placed in the '20s. It has been remade since by different companies in the '50s, '60s, '70s and finally in 1989 with some alterations, however I find reading the patents, details and whether it's available quite difficult to understand.

Re: Decals or print supplier needed for Bell Fruit glass

Thanks for the advice but I'm confused at the moment as to whether I'm asking for a decal (which I think is a water slide transfer) or a vinyl sticker?
