Looks like a nice one, are you going to strip her down and paint her or just put the oily rag over it?

Knowing Matt he will strip it all down and do a full repaint with nice bright red nuts and bolts, pick the lettering out with gold leaf and make it shine like a new pin....Laughing

Yes, they are a bit of a rare engine that I'm not sure I have seen, still think I would like one, and if it was on a Hartop sawbench then all the better.
