This was Seymo's answer to hooking things up I doubt many will have seen one as they never caught on because they were over complicated for a simple job that could be done just by an elastic band.
My word Ken, your little shop must be a bit of an Aladdin's Cave with various odds and ends hidden away, probably got some Lesney's bread presses tucked away somewhere. :ROFLMAO:

I've not the used the Preston ones, but those I have used have their limitations I feel as far as hook sizes are concerned...... I now use odd bits of Pole elastic, looped and knotted, which work a treat and I find are much better with smaller size hooks...oh and cheaper too ?

Pole winder anchors were spot on for it as they have a hole one end to make a loop with.

I find these new Preston ones difficult to slide up and down despite having the smaller one on my No.1 and bigger on my No.2, especially when wet.

I sold a Lesneys bread press a few weeks back. (true)?
With the money bought new pole elastic, when fitted used old stuff to make hook holders ((false) but I do do this).?
