Nice one tids they are beautiful very rare to find craftsmanship like that these days and it's a shame it's all about speed and money these days I spoke to a guy many years ago when I was serving my time as an apprentice he worked as a stone mason he served his time on our Anglican cathedral building it up just after the war and he retired working on the same job none of that anymore it's sad really as there where some very talented people

Yes Zim, the craftsmanship is truly amazing.

This is my Nicole Freres 18 air cylinder box. The cylinder is 20" long and every pin would have been placed by hand. No robots or machines to do that back then.
I've no idea how many pins there are, but it's one a hell of a lot.
