So as Santleman stated, very similar to Mills clocks, see below. I did not take mine out as machine difficult to get to, but the mount positions are the same at back and it appears to be a roller type unit, like the spare I have also shown. I never noticed the slow timing like on Gunter Wulff machines, like I have never seen this on Turas, maybe they geared them differently originally

If you decide not to go for it, let us know as may be tempted..did you get any pictures of the machine,

Tough call, but needs rescuing.....in my view £300 is too much for work involved....but I have spent similar on basket cases......I would go £250 if it had back door.....

Are we actually allowed to travel around anymore buying machines with ever changing rules, I’m confused !PUZZLED!
