The turntable probably has a mirror resting on it if it's an old Waltonian.

Big thank you for that Bad penny. That's saved a broken mirror. Looks like I'll be hiring a transit.

Ok I maybe mad
But I gave over 3 k for 4 of these
Although 2 are ahrens 4 siders and beautiful pieces
Of machinery ,how can these single siders be cheaper than allwins

And it's not as if you can't get it in the house
There only about 700 mm wide so should fit through most doors

I sure hope the chain on that tail gate is stronger than it looks.

You'd think a modern car radio and CD player would be more affective.

I thought I would just post an update on the problems I have faced with this transaction.
My first attempt at contact with this eBay seller was via an e mail asking for the dimensions of the machine. After waiting a few days and receiving no reply I then sent another e mail and received a reply giving me his phone number but still no measurements. A phone call was then made to arrange collection and make a payment. I still needed to know the size of the item so that I could sort out what type of transport would be required. I was told it was 30" x 30" but for some strange reason would not tell me the height. He then said rather harshly 'you do realise you've got a real bargain here' which I found rather strange. I said I would phone him back to arrange collection. After a quick search on the internet I soon had the height of 44".
I then arranged to hire a van. Another phone call was made and all was going okay until I asked if he could help with the loading. I was told that in no way was anybody available to give me a hand, it would be totally impossible. He then said it would take at least four people as it had to be lifted up in the air and taken through a window. I then said that this had threw a different light on things but before I could say I would have to make more arrangements I was told 'we'll that's that then' and he hung up on me.
In conclusion I personally think he hadn't any intention of letting it go at that price and he was being as awkward as possible. Surely if you are selling something to someone with cash in hand you would go out of your way to help them.
