  1. If you are so minded it may be possible to re-hand it to a R/H knee hole. Jon.
  2. Just as I thought ....... Jon.
  3. This area is mine - Mine - Mine 😎. Jon.
  4. I like the 'FrankenJolly' tag, but you're not to far away from the truth and hopefully this link will show one of my duberries ......... With the Forum change around I never to sure what I'm doing so try it, I pass some of my time with scrap metal or wooden pallets, hence a very tight budget when considering an idea, not that I've sold anything, at the moment just a retirement pastime. Taking ownership of a S J when buying a second machine as a deal, it was in to good a condition to operate on, so in reality I know the Jolly and it would be receptive to my current thoughts. Like yourself I will shortly be away, hopefully the end of this month and not back till later in the year and appreciating your absence ??, but I understand not being keen on packaging. Jon.
  5. By the power not particularly invested in me but I'll make you an offer, I was thinking £100 plus postage, but you may have countered with a part way suggestion, so £110 plus postage, for that price I can justify it to put into place an idea I have in mind, I do already have one of these that's totally complete in every way, with the doser (Not for me) and the extended forks and tamper accessory so I'm not keen on committing surgery on it, but a unit that is already devoid of certain bits I could be tempted without anaesthetic. If you accept drop me a PM to confirm ......... All open and above board ...... I think..... 🤔. Jon.
  6. Did you know The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner Here's a little fact for automotive buffs or just to dazzle your friends. The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees. The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter. Henry was curious and invited them into his office. They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car. They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately. The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent. The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed. Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords. They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown. And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show -- Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls. Control yourself !
  7. Strategic .... 🤣. Jon.
  8. I couldn't help you with an advisory price BB, I dropped on to a Super Jolly in a deal with an espresso machine, complete in every way, with a doser and extended PF forks plus a tamper, although very clean, I stripped it and it easily came up pristine, very much doubt it had seen many kg's through it, didn't attract an enquiry or offer. I still have it and use it at another location, you must yourself have a figure in mind ?. Jon.
  9. A globule of water aptly caught dripping off the end off the andle !!! just one ... not forc ... andles ... drip tray looks iffy. Jon.
  10. By customising, exactly what have you done, by passed the timer, removed the dosing internal mechanism ?..... Jon.
  11. The 'For Sale' is only accessible to people with five posts or over, makes sense for a similar ......... 'For Sale & Discount Codes' ........ Jon.
  12. O'h I don't know, I think it'll be a BLAST. Jon.
