↓ (12-10-11) This was for sale on ebay for starting bid of 550 pounds, located in Billinghay.
I do not think it sold at that price.
The motor is mounted up high and that reduces the footprint of the machine.
It looks like it has a plastic pulley at the motor end.
There is no belt guard. The standard Clarkson belt guard will not fit because of the motor and belt position.
Most of the basic accessories appear to be included.
This is running on 240 volts with capacitors driving a 3 phase motor (but not very well so the advert goes).

↓ (01-10-11) This one was for sale on ebay for 350 pounds, located in Mansfield.
It comes with a nice set of tooling.
Note the '<' shaped handle on the Universal Head, which saves time adjusting as you don't need to use a spanner.
The guard is certainly unusual. I feel it should be a bit closer to the wheel.
