I've still got mine from boyhood (first one) but the box is in bits. I wasn't impressed with the speed of the" belt" so plugged it into the mains ( NOW CHILDREN- DO NOT DO THIS!!!) & of course it went bang not faster as I'd hoped! I wrote to Britains & complained the motor had packed up & they sent me a new motor,still installed & working last time I tried it about 20 yrs ago.

I bought my Lister Elevator (boxed) from G&M in  1995 for ? 85.00. I have only had it out of the box

once , only problem with it was 1 of the motor contacts was broken,so left it alone.

I doubt it would work , but that doesn't matter ,just nice to have one.

The box was also in good condition, from what i remember, as its been packed away in the loft for about

8 years.I must look it out and check it over.
