Re: Bell Fruit Strike

Hello there .... I doubt anyone here can help, but you never know. Predominantly we are all decrepit old sods who were born in The Victorian era. Our interest in coin operated/slot machines tends to circle around purely mechanical three reelers and wooden boxes with a ball bearing in them. Whereas I...
