Made a bunch of em wood rails.
These are made out of Tasmanian oak.
Don't pay $48 usd approx $70 au each plus shipping.
THESE ARE $60 FOR A PAIR. YES A PAIR NOT EACH.
Have cut these at 1100mm long to try to keep shipping size to a minimum.
Location is Bossley park N.S.W20220315_153902.thumb.jpg.a7965a010b9755fdeed213fff7a9b0a2.jpg20220315_153912.thumb.jpg.9a8fea1d89d59239e3a15d8400b726a0.jpg20220315_153918.thumb.jpg.3b48780305465a0d302379a64e9768d6.jpg

How are these rails fixed to the machine as I have a Miss Annabelle that I need to restore and someone has stuffed around with its head and cut into the wood rails which will also need replacing, but they are just roughly nailed in which look a bit dodgy or it just may be the way it’s done? As I’ve never owned a wood rail machine before

start a resto thread 😁

the timber rails along the playfield were originally glued (really) well. you may find they are actually damaged getting the old ones off. 

they have a timber channel that interlocks onto the timber cabinet

the timber surround around the head were nailed into place.

nobody as far as im aware has remade the timber around the head. have a set here but holding them for a rainy day

Yeah I will start a resto thread Tony I’m just not quite ready to start it yet though because I’ve got to many other home projects to do still.

I actually don’t even know where to start with this one as someone in the past has tried to repair the cabinet sand have us3d crappy mdf instead of ply or pine and I don’t know why but they have completely modified the head so the Backglass instead of being inserted from inside the back of the headbox and clamping in, they have made a removal section in the top of the headbox and the backglass slides in from the top it’s so weird. I’m at the point where I’m thinking about sourcing another cabinet or even trying to make one up if I can source some planes to do so as there are other bits and pieces missing as well

Had another good look at my Miss Annebelle and I don’t know what they’ve done to the cabinet it’s actually been butchered a bit and rough repairs done, there doesn’t seem to be any grooves for the rails to sit into as your drawing shows and it looks like they have just bought picture frame pieces from Bunnings and nailed it in place, I’m thinking I need to try source a replacement wood rail cabinet as there seems to be to much wrong with this one
