New acquisition, picked up from Tunbridge Wells this morning...

Its a Tarpen shaft drive set powered by a Villers lightweight engine (which runs but will need a carb clean), two shaft drives (one is a bit sad...) and another one of those evil pruning saws !!

Nice one Paul, glad you got it for the collection .....!
Also nice to see your 52.00 bid stayed like that with no last minute sniping bids putting the price up.

I saw that, and thought you might be the top bidder!

If that pruning saw is looking for a new home.......... Wink

Should also say that Meetens have spare springs for the recoil star, and I have most of the rest of a spare recoil starter if you need it.

Sorry Jim, the pruning saw is off to Wiltshire !!

I've got a recoil for it somewhere thanks, it starts ok on a rope and doesn't look as if a starter has ever been on it...
