Vintage Industrial Lighting & Accessories. Herbert Terry Anglepoise Restoration & Spare Parts. Anglepoise Restoration – Part 1 « Winston's Roost.

Since then, I have regretted my impatience as I STILL prefer the 1227, and really should have just saved up and waited for the right auction (you’d think I would know myself well enough by now to know that I should wait and save for what I really want instead of settling, but …there you go).
