My Dad, Hugh Harvey, used to have a miniature copy of the fruit grader at the Royal Melbourne Show instead of fruit he had a series of small balls and marbles of different sizes to run demonstrations, it was my job to gather the 'Fruit' from the bins and refeed them into the Grader. As payment I would get enough money to buy a couple of Show Bags. I don't know if the machine is still around somewhere.
