[access-uk] Re: Technology Now & Then for Vips

Hi Tony

No, not a Stainsby, but a metal, good quality Dymo gun.  I've had it for
years.  I think the Dymo machines you buy nowadays are plastic and much
lighter, but I am still very much attached to the one I bought from
George at Techno-Vision Systems a long time ago!

Well jackie! 

You bought a Stainsby from George? 

Ah well, must have been a great "little" machine then! *smile*
