Mr tree frog, the guy must have been fooled into thinking "I'll give you £500 quid mate, I'm in the area, can pick it up later, and save you ebay fees etc etc......." :oops:
When will punters realise if it is worth anything, ebay will get you a fair price. That machine would have fetched £800 - £1000 me thinks.... !!ESCAPE!!

He would not take a penny less than 1500, and he saved all the fees, so quite a savvy punter after all.

They don’t come up for sale often, but the same machine was sold at Dukes in Dorset yesterday and for £1000 (£1300 with comm)

I was intrigued as the same machine sold last year at the elephant for £2750 inc commission, which was a staggering amount given it had damage. So a big drop and if the same owner, after commission would have only got around £750 back :shock:

I did have a punt and stopped below winning the bid as not as interested in these as I was 10 years ago, also did not view as to any other issues.....anyway back to a normal price I guess. Funny thing is I bid real slow and there was only one other bidding in the room (or phone), so could have gone a lot cheaper :HaHa:

I remember a well known a person in the hobby said he is using one as a step to get into his caravan, certainly strong enough...

I was offered this machine (I remember the damage) in the early 90s for £150.
I declined because it was dripping black oil, it was heavy and damaged. Also I was bit peeved because I had driven a long way to buy a Jennings Governor (pre internet) and it turned out to be a Victoria.
