Re: Aristocrat Arcadian pull effort

That's the blighter, it only needs to be extended a fraction, and what you describe happens. If you push it the other way too far, you'll get a misfire. You can calculate the most effective position for it. Remove mech from case Deposit coin Slowly crank it Check all of the reset actions have happen...

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian pull effort

Hi Neale Hearty congratulations on your novel and unique question. This must be without doubt the first time anybody has explored this and employed a spring balance to emphasise it. I (along with many others I imagine) shall now engage in this activity and I intend to conjure up a table by make/mode...

Re: Birnbeck pier Weston-super-mare

Birnbeck Pier could have new owner. Reported by PA Media (who?) today ....... After years of decline, a historic Victorian pier could have a new owner. The RNLI is planning to return to Weston-super-Mare’s Birnbeck Pier as part of a deal to safeguard the landmark’s future. North Somerset Council has...

How many Horse Power is your Caille?

Caille.jpg Yes it's the same company. It seems about 1906 a Yale law student from Detroit named Cameron Waterman invented the first petrol powered outboard motor. He asked the Caille Brothers, manufacturers of slot-machines, to build the first 25. It seems history doesn't record the details of the ...

Re: Anyone had tokens made for machines?

.................. But on a positive note, I have fewer holes in my pockets now. :lol: Yes I outgrew that habit as well, my probationary officer refocussed me. Nothing to do with vintage arcades, but I went to a living museum once where you were given 6 old pennies to pay for tram and bus trips etc...

Re: Have you seen what we mustn't talk about?

Further to what I said above about Auction Houses making hay while the sun shines. As most here I am registered with the sites that act as a go between for buyers and auction houses, and for that privilege you can end up paying two sets of premiums. Following another of my hobbies I was aware of a s...

Re: Anyone had tokens made for machines?

Not forgetting that using tokens/tickets on rides stops the "Gaff Lads" pocketing or short changing. BP :tut I am looking into the feasibility of having play tokens the size of old one pennies made for my machines. I think you're adding a cost as well as removing the quirky attraction of handling th...

Re: Have you seen what we mustn't talk about?

Crazy, you would have thought A&G would have dropped the fee for their own online auction service given current crisis, given they already charge 22% On top of all this, many may not be able to collect on the day, especially online bidders, they have an additional charge of around £130 per item to ...

What the dickins is happening?

It's crazy enough to merely look at the end game of this auction. Not only is it a £250(IMO) Aristocrat Arcadian but it's an OXO conversion which means the pay outs have been reduced to just two. It's truly staggering enough to see it end at £620 !!!!! but if you believe the bid history there were 3...
