Ransomes Ajax Mk 3 Wooden Handles
Hi, I'm new to the club and about to start my first restoration of a Ransomes Ajax Mk 3. The wooden handles are in need of a bit of TLC but will certainly be useable. I notice, however, that both handles spin on their fixings. Should they do this or should they be rigidly fixed?
Thanks in anticipation
hi the handles have to be fixed to stop them from turning.THEY SHOULD BE FITTED WITH COACH BOLTS which have a square at the top and screw into the iron handle or on later machines have a nut on the end of the bolt.if you do need new handles or rollers contact club member MICHAEL FLOODY who makes excellant rollers /handles in beech oak or even the leg off your table just dont lean on it.i rest my bottom blade.
