Re: Early German Monimat Bandit on Ebay

No idea what you might get but it's for sure that yours has got just about everything possible going against it - location, conversion, condition, - I can't see anybody outside Cornwall travelling to pick it up non-working, I'd be tempted to sell it locally as a vintage, retro, decorators piece, you might get lucky,

What is the mech? standard Gunter Wulff? Pictures would be good.

I've merged this thread with a previous one in which BP posted pictures of the mechanism. Although his looked earlier than the square cabinet version and had a skill stop, I'm guessing the mechanisms are similar. Clearly it shares no components with the Wulff mechanism (unsurprising, as it's made by Bud-Monheim) and, as BP says, it's not pot metal. !!THUMBSX2!!

Excellent question , and I've been waiting for someone to ask that ....... which is all a delaying tactic for I ain't got a clue !PUZZLED!

I thought that was what it's there for, and it does line up with a spring loaded bar on 't'other side. However that only makes a connection with the spinner for the first reel, it doesn't interact with it, it just gets in the way of the spinner if you press it same time as you pull the handle.
I've looked all around the frame to see if there are any holes where a piece of assembly has been removed, but can't see anything that's not there (eh?)

Edited because nothing above made any sense 10.25 am
I notice at the time I hadn't sussed out the button on the front. Some time later I did and omitted to update the thread ... tut tut :tut

It is a re-starter for reel one. Everything was there to make it work, I guess at some point an operator had undone a linkage at one end and just swivelled it out of the way.
After I reconnected it everything worked fine.

I still have it.

Thanks

That's not a Tura, it's a Monimat.
Paul if you check your website you'll see you sold one in the first batch of machines you advertised for sale.
