After nearly three years of collecting and restoring it's time to upgrade my workshop. Whilst summers are fine winter work is a nightmare especially with so much wet weather over the last few years. So, 5 machines have gone to new homes to help fund the upgrade as well as create space for new projects.. Sadly, as selling four of them from my website didn't happen, four went on ebay, 3 to people who I know will enjoy them and a fourth alas to some ebay profiteering, sold by me to the highest bidder at £245 only to reappear within a couple of hours at £395! Ah well that is the way of things I guess. Hopefully someone who will value it will get it albeit at a chunk more than they could have bought it off me.
The result of all this will be a quiet summer for the website as there'll not be much progress with gramophone restoration. Still come the winter I will be able hopefully, to work in comfort and also be free from the tellings off I receive from my missus about treading mud in to the house as currently I don't have a decent path to the workshop.....all in all it promises to be sheer bliss!
