Re: FREE MACHINES ... FREE MACHINES ...FREE MACHINES ...

Some of you might recall that a mere few years ago I offered a couple of sweety vendors for free?

Well they have finally been snapped up by a discerning new collector, so that's good and it means that I won't have to badger the hell out of you all every 6 months.

Whilst I remember it ......... you may be interested to hear that a certain Lora Marsden was seen wheeling the blumin' thing to the train station the other day to take it to university, making her 10 minute walk a 45 minute struggle! She then had to get it from Manchester Oxford road to her halls of study!...
Oh the trials and tribulations of being bitten by the slot bug!!!!

Oh, my. Be careful, Laura - you know what the nice man always says - the first one is free! But once you're hooked, there's no return possible to the age of innocence, and the habit will take every damn penny you've got.

Okey Dokey , it's time to breathe life back into this thread.

It's been a while since I gave anything away, The Next Harvest ....... Over two years t'would appear.

So before I go to the effort of brandishing a whip and exploring the back of the lockup in Derby I'll start the ball rolling with a small yet useful taster.
I mentioned recently the true bonus of dismantling a piano, namely felt pads big enough to to protect wooden furniture from scratchy bandit bottoms. Well I've used those I need so if you want a set, pm me for where to post a SAE.

They even come fitted with a hole if you don't want to glue them.
No gags please about is the laptop included? It's a heap of SH one T and is only there for scale and perspective, which is about as useful as it's ever been.

Not a machine this time, but a really useful part .... if you need one!
Cascade Trip, the one that holds the stack of pennies in place.

I haven't a clue why I have it or when I acquired it. If you need just this bit and don't want to spend money buying the whole kit and Caboodle then send me a SAE and I'll pass it on.
