For the last few weeks I've been bidding on-line for various working PWs that are cheap enough to use as a training aid; strip them down, rebuild them and see if I can keep them working. Every time I’m outbid (it wasn’t you was it?) so on to the next auction; no luck there so far.

At a flea fair yesterday I managed to pick this up for £15. It works, has lost maybe a minute in the 24 hours I’ve owned it and now I can’t bring myself to take a screwdriver to it! I’ll just have to keep going to various fairs and get another one, another one, another one... :groan:

I understand it is post 1900 but there isn’t a lot about Thomas Russell that I’ve managed to find through Google so far, or I’m looking in the wrong place.

Blimey, another £15 well spent at a flea market! I cant believe people let such things of beauty go for so little!! :drool:

I dont think I'd look at it as something to mess with (mind you I break everything I touch!!), think I'd just get it serviced and enjoy it :wink:

Enjoy
