Hi coppinpr, thank you for the set of bandit reel brakes that arrived today. We have just fitted them and what a difference they have made! The bandit reels run slower and don't jump when they stop. It's made my machine far more enjoyable. Thanking you again and we will keep in touch. tammy

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Does anyone recognise this, has characteristics of Mills Extraordinary but leaning more towards Jennings. Never seen one.

Firmans,

Guy in Scotland has been trying to sell for a long time and asking a lot of lolly......but of a marmite machine, certainly not pretty, maybe their take on an extraordinary

A lot of collectors have considered but not committed on this one......

Yes, I copied a picture when it listed first time assuming it would be snapped up by the hoards, but suspect he would not let go for less than his asking price.

For me it is worth nowhere near the £1000 asking, especially as not seen inside. I have tried to like it, but can’t, it is damn right ugly, probably should be in the ugly list. In fact I have never bought a Firmans, always felt they are too rough......the word monstrosity comes to mind :shock:

It should have a model of King Kong on the top, perhaps holding Fay Wray in its arms. :lol:

As treefrog says, it's by Firman - far as I know, the only all-Firman bandit. I've seen a couple of other examples.
