Coronet advertising (magazines and newspapers)

There is a fair amount out there still if you can find it.   I have found some pieces which I have scanned and posted here for general interest.  Sometimes a kind reader sends in an example which I try to attribute where I can.   Many thanks in particular to Ray of Stoke-on-Trent who kindly allowed me to copy three Coronet Major information sheets (see below) that were in his possession.  Please send in anything Coronet related either in pdf form or actual paper copy which I can send back by return post. 

First of all from the Practical Home Money Maker October 1957 which was missing it's front cover comes this first advert which hasn't scanned and cleaned up too bad considering it is now 61 years old.  It describes the Minorette as a boon to all flat dwellers.   But probably not those dwelling in the flat below.

This next one was recently sent in by Davey from Cornwall.  Dated May 1967 and from Practical Woodworking it is a great addition to this section and exactly what I'm looking for, many thanks.

And from the Woodworker February 1962 comes this ad for an improved design.. 

If that's the improved one and I had bought this one the year before then I might be a little miffed . 

I bought the ad below from ***y for a couple of quid and thanks to my mac (21st technology to those of you like me had never really heard of one) it appears below in substantially better appearance.

From the January 1960 edition of the Woodworker comes an advert for the Minorette whose cash price comes in at at £39. 17s. 6p. ...

But eleven months later in the November issue the price has risen to £43. 17. 6.  Three quid in less than a year.

From a Parrys catalogue of pre-decimal days costing 5/- comes this full pager for the Classic and Capitol bandsaw.  Thanks to this mod tech we can see the machines better than before although in b/w.

From the same catalogue... 

No denying that, "the amazing Minorette," hits the nail on the head.  Probably the only thing it doesn't do in real life.  Not sure where that came from but it needs re-scanning and cleaning. I've had a go at cleaning it without much success so if I can find the original (haha) then I will re-scan it.

Ray from Stoke on Trent kindly sent in three flyers that came with a Coronet Major lathe he bought.  He allowed me to scan and upload them to the site before returning them to him. In fact he did this twice as the first time I did the scans at too high a resolution. Thanks Ray, they are a great addition to the site.

Martin from South Yorkshire sent in this superb piece on the early Coronet Major.  It was featured in a Garner Tools (of Barnsley) advert in the Woodworking magazine 1951.  Many thanks for sending it in.

12 in 1 or 10 in one?  Make your minds up. 

Ok so it's a 10 in 1. Glad that's cleared up then.

I'm working on upgrading all these Coronet images to the quality of the newer ones.
