    Im restoring one of these ol' girls at present. (I used to be on this site known as Kiwi Will but after the quake, hadn't been able to use a computer to keep up membership) It's a Hough 65C isn't it?
    I thought I'd have a bash at restoring it cause it's still a basic ol' machine that doesn't have or need anything so technical such as a computer to make any part of it work. Also, (so far) parts have been still available or the odd bit has been able to be made up local. Would certainly like to rob a few bits off this one. :)
    When your image was blown up in size, it appears as if its pretty much all there.
    Come on guys, save the ol' toy.
