Re: Allwins

I got a Boomerang with the Glen collection that I purchased years ago. After playing it numerous times with only a rare win, I realized that it was essentially a bank. To address the issue, I removed the rod that stops the ball after a loss, allowing the ball to simply cycle back to the hammer. It m...

Re: Auction searches

Nursey,

When Mr PennyMachines takes his nap this afternoon, would you please pinch his iPhone for a few minutes? We just want to take a look at his apps.

Thank you.

Re: Clown Catcher, info please.

Barry,

Welcome to PennyMachines. If you type "Bajazzo" into the search function in the Forum, you will find a wealth of information on your machine. There were several different iterations of the clown catcher as you will find. Yours is a nice one.

Regards,

Re: SS Automatic Machine Co. Fascination identified

I love these oddball games. I'm guessing this was one where you bet/played against your buddies. Otherwise, why have different odds (payouts in real life) for the same dog but no differential payout from the machine? Some of the American trade stimulators used the same ruse: look like an amusement m...

Re: Looking forward....

As a key worker I returned to work two weeks after lockdown, having been very ill two weeks before, with all the symptoms; of course they wouldn't test me, I had to isolate. Goodness, Malcymal. What a horrible experience. I cannot understand why your Doctor could not get you tested for the virus? Y...

Re: Do we have a Facebook group?

BP, A good tale, my lad. From the nature of his responses (as well as the lack of general knowledge or civility) I would guess this fine fellow to be a solid Trump supporter. You handled it very nicely, given the churlish nature of his replies. As for his intellectual aptitude, as we like to say her...

Re: Do we have a Facebook group?

"...some of the Americans don't believe there is intelligent life outside of the USA."
