It has been TEN YEARS i am asking owners of leaflets
- either on this Blog or on Flickr -
to send a scan to me.
It has NEVER happened.
Every copy/scan i published where the result of "personal contact", aka email/messages,
more than often on Ebay, the rest from kind collectors.

Did Bahco-Condrup Ltd. continue selling Robbiati's coffee machines after A. & M.G. stopped the production?
Here is the Bahco-Condrup Ltd. leaflet i am referring to: Here
You can make a worthy contribution to this Blog and my knowledge by sending me a scan of the following leaflet. Many Thanks in advance!

That is what i did.
The google translation didn't make much sense. So i went to see a elderly former librarian lady, originating from Hungary who translated it for me:
She: We don't use those words anymore, how old is the article?
She: Then the writer has known those times.
"Black" means independent. (Red meant Gouvernement-near)
So Imre Simon was a perfectionnist, he was famous for it. He was running the best "Black" business.
He also left some impressions among its customers, admonesting customers for not taking care of their machines, that they bought 30 years ago, when they brought them for repair.
His wife was the lightnig rod. She is also described as "more forgiving, understanding and empathetic".
I posted a picture of her already in 2013:
I am glad i am researching the history of Robbiati's coffee makers.
Anything after 1989 is so ludicrous.
Here, the authorised repairers for Bon Trading Pty Ltd is using a picture of Jack Grieve on their website.
Jack Grieve's (Australian Bellman CX-66 reseller) picture:
It reminds me of a recent post:
Also this: on Bon Trading's website you will read:
"we are very proud of our role in introducing the ATOMIC to Australia and preserving its manufacture for generations to come"
There are good reasons to think that's nowhere near what they think they are:
_ Patent registration in Australia in 1949 here
Preserving the manufacture:
_ S.T.E.M.A.C. closed in 1989, 6 years after BREVETTI ROBBIATI (here)
