I have asked this same question in the technical section and received very little feedback so I thought I would try here !
I have recently bought a Atco Standard in very nice original condition but a couple of points puzzle me.
The tank is polished brass were they originally polished or painted please ?
It had a modern style Atco transfer on it also which I believe is wrong.
The entire machine is painted green the only red part is the cutting cylinder again did all Standards have the red "moving parts" or were some all green.
Any idaas or help gratefully received
Many Thanks John
