Bisset Automatic Dart Scorer
I have had this a while, I actually thought I had already posted it but guess not.

They first made these in the early 30's I think and continued to make them up to the 80's, but I think the modern version had painted on numbers.  I think this one is from the 30's or 40's but I'm not 100% on that.

They are made from metal and work really well, I will try to do a video of it in operation when I can:

should be a good project, I have not looked inside it but not sure I want to really, could be a bit complicated inside and I would be a little worried if I broke it.:s

I'm looking forward to this project on the one I have on the way. It doesn't look in brilliant condition, so if I can open it up I most likely will lol.

I think its possible to open it, curiosity may get the better of me and I may do it, but I wont be happy if something falls out and I dont know where it goes lol!
