The ultimate "Love tester"

My www.penny-arcade.info web site received an unusual email today. The sender was asking where they could buy a "Vibratory Doctor" machine like the one featured on my "unusual machines" section.

Any projects where the council was prepared to inject even a little money went out the window with the lockdown, especially coastal towns facing a year with no tourist income. The Bristol channel is the busiest section of saltwater for the RNLI (the Thames is their b...

Re: Vintage Slots in Films and Newsreels

The first was a scene in the new TV series remake of "Perry Mason" (set in the '30s more like the original books than the old 50's TV series) The bad guys meet in a small dark room full of 1930's Jennings ...

Re: SS Automatic Machine Co. Fascination identified

I believe the machine is working but needs cleaning. Been in the same family for over 50 years. I'm guessing this was one where you bet/played against your buddies I can't really see that John, seeing as the order in which the results are going to come up are printed on the award card (as they are o...

Re: SS Automatic Machine Co. Fascination identified

Some detailed and interesting photos turned up today, and things are................clearer? Tom, is I think, right.
