Re: puzzled

Thanks for clearing up the window puzzle... Regarding fruits, that was actually the next question. I bought this machine with fruits and award card. It looks pretty authentic. Is it possible that this mech has been changed at some point and is there a way of telling?

Hi marsh1234 - welcome. As with anything, it's worth what someone is willing to pay. Why not check out the Market here and Arena? Also various other past auction prices. This will give you a rough idea of value.

chrome plating

Topic merged - Site Admin.

I got couple of Jennings machines and was looking to have the top castings and back hoods re-plated. Can anyone recommend any good companies? I have had this done in the past by a company in Yorkshire, but was not overly impressed with the job.
