Passing by yesterday (November 13 2014) the Emmett machines were no longer on display (at least just after the incline from Merrion Street). I hope it is not years before they are on display again.

PS. I notice that this thread currently has 69 replies but apparently only 95 views! :o. That seems an extraordinary low view number, so probably something to do with the merger of the new and old topics.

Yes, the merge changes the thread ID number and presumably all the stats with it. I think if I was a bit more clever about it it would have used the title and stats from the older thread, but I'm not sure - still learning this new system :)

Does anyone know if the Heath Robinson Clock is currently on display in the Merrion Centre.

Hi warringtonrhino :).

I was in the Merrion Centre today and coming in from Merrion Street there are 2 of Emett's small contraptions in window displays on the right and at the top of the stairs the large bicycle contraption is on display. I did not go farther than Morrisons so I don't know if any other contraptions are on display.

As there does not seem to be photos of it in this thread I have attached 2 photos of Emett's 'Hush-a-Bye Hot-Air Rocking Chair' that is currently on the first floor/balcony of the Merrion Centre. I took the photos on June 27 2017.
