I got as far as the toothpaste method with no luck. I didn't want to try solvents in case it removed the paint off it.

I would experiment with ordinary wood dye in an inconspicuous place and see if that does the trick.....

On American Restoration "King of Signs" they had a 4-sided UK machine - worth a watch.

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Bought this, because I liked the look of it. Now I need to make it work. This has to be the simplest wiring on any machine, ever, but either I'm using the wrong battery or every bulb is blown (this only arrived today so it's not in pieces yet and testing a bulb means removing the light board to remove one). I don't want to attempt anything until I know the correct battery I should be using, so, which one please? And if anyone knows what replacement bulbs? (although once I get one out I should know the answer to both, just wanted to know TODAY!!!)

Oh, and that Yale lock, anyone know where I can get one? I can't re-key, this one is broken inside.

Never had one, so can't help on voltage. I do have lots of Yale locks ;-)

What is the mechanism, is this just simple bulbs from some contact mechanism? If so, can you not checkout the voltage on the bulbs? I assume they are not in series.

I can and I will but won't have time to dismantle the machine till late in the week and can't remove a bulb till I dismantle. No access to the bulbs from the position you see below. Was just trying to find out in advance so I can buy a battery in readyness.

If you could sell me a lock Tom I would be very grateful (photo below)

Maybe you could start at 1.5 and work your way upwards, unless someone in the know comes back with an answer.....

Ping me dimensions of lock and will check, so barrel length, diameter and case size.
