Re: counter balance weight size

Hi All
Interesting feed back I have loads of photos and books on the Lee but no dimensions
of the weight .
I even took photos at Duxford earlier in the year but forgot to take my tape measure
which is why I need dimensions.
Can we please keep on thread :oops:

Thanks

Hi Guys
Land rover is an interesting idea but if you go that route then it would have to be a Willy's Jeep for me.

Re: A New and Useful Material

Hi Guys
We use this type of adhesive at work and would recommend you use eye protection for the UV torch.

A yellowish tinted glasses are what we have for UV light use.

Hi Guys
Still hoping for a universal carrier .
Nice size should be easy to transport and lots of scope for detailing.

Re: New releases

Hi All
Well I would love a universal carrier and have been asking for years :D
My Dad drove one in 44.

Could we start a Famo style shout out to see if we can get it
Its a nice small one to move around to and with lots of different uses
lots of options.

Living in hope

Regards
Derek
