And not surprisingly gameswat, the 'fill em up' chute is the same - seems rather over-engineered and puzzling as to why they are spring loaded. !PUZZLED!

Re: Shefras 8 cup allwin

Looking at the ironmongery again on the Shefras allwin, it does bear more than a passing resemblance to the ironmongery on this Oliver Whales Jet Play.

Re: Shefras 8 cup allwin

Yes, Wonders style case with Parkers style winning knob and traditional Saxony style hammer lever, although Parkers also used the traditional Saxony style lever design on a lot of their allwins.

Shefras 8 cup allwin
