Look at their website or the saleroom.....

Good luck with your sale, there is no harm in trying a local auction house, although probably way too far for many of us, mind you a beautiful part of the world and probably worth a visit just for the scenery. Was surprised at their auction fees though and interesting to see provisional auction houses now charging high levels, if buying online 27.6%, which is crazy. Bring back country auctions charging 10%.., I see the Cheffins sale is charging just that.

Prices are tough ones as these machines are retail quality items. What you need is a nice shop to display and sell as the right person has to come along......

I am intrigued how long it takes to restore each machine as I seem to take for ever and never can get to this level of detail. Have taken time out of work over last year and only managing to restore one machine every two weeks, although have made the mistake in doing 6 machines at once, so spend another 3 weeks trying to find the parts..

Yes Tom a lot of work as you have found out, it's really not worth the effort any more as people don't seem to want to pay for such machines now, I'm going to be giving it all up I've had enough of it now I think
