my first german was from Harold English, (not a bad place to start was it?) I had seen something on ebay about a year before I think by Slotalot who referred to it being refurbed by "The Legendary Harold English" and it stuck with me. Saw this cheap buy it now fixer up about half five one morning, bid on it, sent him an email saying about collection/payment etc and bugger me if ebay didn't pull it after it was sold! Well we managed to communicate through their system and I went down later that day. He was very poorly by then but we did the tour of the downstairs, we emptied and sorted out the side outhouse and went down to the shed. Came away 4 hours later happy as Larry with 5 machines, but sadly never got to see the stuff he had upstairs or in the attic.
