I knew that would (wood) get John's attention.

Fixed Dad's car a few weeks ago and he surprised me with:

I know he loves it, but can't afford to fix it... so I will have it serviced and put it on a bung for him.

I'll document its restoration.

Some of you closer lords know Dad has been trading off his Invecters. He uses offer up and has come up with some Hamilton pocket watches and now this.

That's all.

Goddamn!! That's a tasty Tooter, one which gives me wood.

All lords should be aware that Smells Sr. is one of the coolest guys around. Like, Rat Pack cool.

Can't wait to view the "after" photo. And yeah, Sr. sounds pretty cool.

That’s one lovely Tooter. Shouldn’t cost much to fix, these were usually equipped with the FHF 30. Looks to be in good shape - a new crystal, movement overhaul and a thorough cleaning of the case should do the trick.

Yes. And that is where it is going. He isn't as cheap as he used to be.... but the only one I trust.

It runs for a few minutes... shouldn't be too complicated.

He has serviced all my vintage and has my 6205 at the moment.

I had him restore a nice pink dialed oyster for my wife a few years back.
