Re: Buffalo Springfield

Hello Wayne, That is exactly the principle on which the roller worked. :thumbup: Thank you for the information. :bow: There can't have been many of those that reached this side of the Pond. :think: A really rare beast. :!: :!: I was, as I said in my post, unable to find anything about it on the net ...
