Webb Witch - Production date

Hi folks. Got myself a Webb Witch yesterday. Previous Witches I have had were dark Green in colour, this is not. Can anyone perhaps tell me what year it may have been in production please? There  are no decals on the machine anywhere to show what Series it was. Thanks for any help you can offer. Regards. Rob

Hi Rob

Looks like a late one, but heres some info that you may be able to use....

Mk 1 1932 to 1947

Mk2 1948 to 1957

Series 3   1958 Only (As Mk2 but with pressed steel roller)

Series 4 1959 to 1962 (Cam adjustment to cutting cylinder)

(All above used C.E.I. threads)

Series 5  1963 onwards to 1980's? (as series 4 but with Unified threads)

Then there's the handles, early models straight(same as early Ajax's)

Pram handle shown in 1953 brochure.

Cross-over handles shown in 1959 brochure, but may have come in a bit earlier.

As to the colours who knows??

Sorry can't be more precise & hope the above helps a bit!

Anyway you shouldn't be getting it out until 31st!!!!!!
