Re: Perfect tipple for any future Coventry Fest

I can't guarantee the ale, but as soon as JC has tied up a few loose ends there will be an announcement on here concerning next year's planned activities.

In the meantime I hope the Baby Jesus slithers down your chimney.

Re: Aristocrat Grosvenor

In my time I've tinkered with three of these on behalf of others. The most I've achieved is to get one paying out sporadically on some wins. I echo coppinpr's analysis.

Vintage-Early-Allwin-De-Luxe-Penny-Seaside-Amusement.jpg Seems it was described as a Supreme which doesn't ring true to me.

Re: Grit Tumbler

Anyone thinking of making a Grit Tumbler using an old orbital sander bolted underneath a plastic bucket should be advised it's not a good idea. Save your £5.90 and put it towards a couple of bottles of White Snake Cider to drink out of a brown paper bag in the long grass down by the railway tracks. ...

Re: Bally Gold Award

Well done Paul, I was confident you'd get there, as I said "clean it all and check the switches!"
