Re: Jamieson Royal Flush and similar info and wiring

There is already some good information and photos on Jamiesons provided by Ian Jamieson at www.slotmachines.bravehost.com

Re: 1950s British arcade photos

Imagine opening up that arcade as a sealed time capsule! Because of its lack of gambling machines it's stuffed with machines that are rare and valuable today, cranes, viewers, fortune tellers and strength testers. The Mills strength tester in photo 7 would fetch a pretty penny today on its own! Anyo...

Re: 1950s British arcade photos

I've seen it before but know little about it. it's called "Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Wall", or something like that. That Berkel scale is truly massive, bigger than the WSG "Classic". The National Service squaddies surrounding the prize vendor is also a great photo of the era. There is a machine to th...

Re: Advice and help

It's true what you say about getting a complete machine (the first of many I'm afraid to tell you, one is never enough) but the mech you have is a great test bed. If you're looking for a new machine then treat this mech as a teaching aid. Give yourself projects to teach you the workings. Some ideas ...

Re: 1950s British arcade photos

Some very interesting photos including 7 from that same arcade shown above (dated Dec 1951). This one (from a different arcade) caught my eye as interesting: samson nov co.jpg being interested in vending machines I also noticed a rare gas mantle vendor. gas mantal vendor.jpg The ranges were so calle...

Re: Aristocrat Starlite slot machine not working

Tom's right as always (well nearly always). It really looks like gummed up grease and oil. I don't know how much you know about this type of machine, but removing the clock and servicing it will make a big difference (there is a section in Tips & Tricks on this) and removing the reel bundle so as to...

Re: Hi from new Allwin collector

I would not worry about the legal side as you are using for personal use. Tom, I think this side issue cropped up because they might not be used for personal use: I intend putting the machines back into use as part of my vintage entertainment business offering a display of these as added attraction...

Re: Hi from new Allwin collector

Others, like JC, know more than I do but my guess is you might be better changing them back to 1d if you intend to use them. The gaming commission can be very picky about "gambling machines" I know. I know play a penny to perhaps win a penny but the gov won't see it that way. Best to play safe. JC w...

Re: Advice and help

You're right of course, I didn't take note of the two to the left. I was thinking more about if some horizontal fingers had been removed. Now BP has taken an interest things will move quicker. !THUMBS!
