They are a great machine aren't they, and I think, much better than the more modern models? I have my MIL's which she bought in the early 60's and it's still going strong, got quite a few of the attachments too. I don't use it as much as I used to (now there is only two of us) but I wouldn't part with it.

They sure are. I have the liquidiser and this other thing that could be a shredder or juicer but I can't see anything on Google. We may go back and have a look for some other bits in the house. I guess I dont need that cos I have a blender.

Morgan Electrical in Whangarei fixes them and he has had one sent over from Spain to be repaired and from around the country
He is a lovely old guy who has all the parts for any model so worth noting and he had a couple of old models that were in mint condition for sale

No link Nauru. Mine has a little adapter for the high speed drive and it sits on that. We got it from hubbys grandads house which hasnt been lived in fir 15 years and now his uncle is selling the farm. But any ways we can go back and raid the house again as the farm sale has fallen through.
