Re: Oak Manufacturing Co. Premiere Card/Gum & similar vendors

Hello,
I found this chap in the States who does parts for Oak premier gum dispenser and other gumball machine parts.
He may have the bits you need.
His contact details are: Mervyn Williams at llbbcoach1@aol.com
It's worth a try.

Re: Toy slot machines

Hi Coppiner, Yes, I did try 25cent, also tried one shilling, five pence and many other coins, but they were not heavy enough or too small to trip the ball release (the release seems to work on weight rather than a physical push).

I then thought it may be a token payout through the little tray on the front, and the slot on the side you mentioned is for refilling the tokens.

Re: Sanders Imperial trade stim. identified

Hi Mr Coppin,
The machine you have is indeed made by J M Saunders but usually is called LITTLE POKER FACE.
