The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

Don't book with the organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

New locking handles

Post by Admin » Wed, 03 Jan 2007, 12:09 pm

If anyone is missing their external chrome door handles altogether (like I was when I bought my Portafold) I do have a company that produces the original specification handles brand new. They come complete with 2 keys per handle and they are able to supply them with matching locks. I now have 4 keys that fit both top and bottom locks. One each for me and the Mrs and two spare.

new keys

Post by paul~3 » Sat, 20 Jan 2007, 4:39 pm

Just been to the locksmith with my key number as found on the shaft. yep got a new key, now found out the darned thing only turns halfway and not the fault of the key, £5 wasted. Last year i bought one brand new original handle with two keys from a vintage car gathering for £7.50.... I'll be back there again. Ooh the problems with having three portafolds. There is a message here... :evil:
