    My eyes just grew to five times their normal size!!
    For some reason it's the fine mist of gold paint that caught my attention first... I think I'm just imaging the vandal, spray can in hand, thinking 'YES - this will do perfectly!'

    Not sure about the "cocktail" but what REALLY frustrates me is when they are selling a cabinet machine and only show pics of the Cabinet. It shows how they perceive it, as a piece of decorative furniture...

    "There are some attachments and the original manual is in a drawer but oil soaked. I have produced a replica that is like new but the original gives the date and number of the machine during production. (See photos)"

    They made a replica of the model 66 manual, even though the oil soaked page said 115. LOL!

    I guess they're pretty much the same machine, they're both black.

    Here is our local "I won't quit" seller. This machine has been up for months at this price. I really do not believe it is an 1873 machine and they would not share the serial number with me.
