It was pretty much standard to have a different key fitting the cash box. This meant a 'keyman' could get into a machine to clear a jammed coin or correct a mechanism problem without helping himself to too much cash. You will find that allwins also usually have a separate cashbox key.

There's already been a closed off debate about anything to do with all issues associated with the AAM mag situation etc, so there does'nt seem to be much topic here to comment on. Basically a flyer has materialised. So really it's case of take it and use it or don't. :-?

Yes, it's a Nostalgia Amusements modern repro allwin with an enlarged picture from an old 1946 Wurlizter advert used as the backflash.

Re Jackpot Allwin Identification

Actually, I think Oliver Whales made two versions of their Jackpot allwin, as there is another version which is called 'Double Jackpot' (see pic). I think the Double Jackpot was very late as it has a sweet payout. This was original to this machine and actually came with one other like it and another...

I believe they are called pygmy light bulbs and they would usually be 7 1/2 or 15 watts depending on what they were lighting up and taking into account the heat the bulb would generate in the area it was situated. If you look on ebay at item 4409738572 I think the large base bulbs shown there are th...

I think they were all originally 50 stop mechs, but when the teeth on the disc wore down during their use, they were often converted to 25 stop so that the stop mechanism latched in firmly to the larger 25 tooth slots. If this is right, then the original 50 stop is preferable as it is untouched.
