Some of the best British machines ever produced in my opinion, up there with Wadkin, Robinson and Dominion or possibly even better built in some cases. Seriously heavy, built to last ad infinitum and are stunning to look at. I've seen quite a few Ex-Prison, Ex-Army and Ex-Navy Cooksley machines pop up on eBay over the years, I'm not sure whether they had some kind of contract with these branches at some point or not. The nice thing is that they go under the radar of some buyers as it's technically obsolete in most peoples eyes compared to say Felder gear and it doesn't have the "Wadkin" name everyone wants, So they don't tend to go for silly money.

One of the old makers so very well engineered and robust. They can be got for little money
