Sega Manhattan

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Picked up another machine, was on holiday but wife didn't mind doing trip on way home to collect :evil: . Anyway, maybe just me as not had proper look at it yet but appears not quite right. Also, can't find any reference to (Manhattan).

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

I like the plastic idea, gameswat. I think it would be the way to go. I've not totally dismissed the idea, but BP may have a point, so on hold for the moment. The problem with the machine is it's spent its life in a damp shed, so it really was worse than it first looked. I don't think there's an opt...

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

I've removed the last few parts and am now thinking that, because all screws and cotter pins etc. have snapped off in the backboard due to them being rusty, I will fashion a new backboard. I would think it's easy enough to cut the shape from a piece of 18mm ply, but obviously a lot of components to ...

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

Thanks again treefrog, I took your advice and, as it turns out, messaged Jerry and he has all the parts I need. Resto well under way and a bigger job than first thought - absolute nightmare, all screws rusty and large majority snapped in backboard, so will have a job there trying to drill them out. ...

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

Hi, thanks for that. I'm still trying to confirm this would be compatible with this machine (any info appreciated). Also, if possible, I would like to keep as many original parts, so I may get away separate with the hammer and trigger which, for the time being, are available on the allwin spares web...

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

Thanks for the offer Jimmy. I may yet take you up on it. I know nothing about printing, but my initial idea was to have a new one printed and laminated? The first thing is the cabinet resto. I will start to scan the internet for info on wood restoration, as other than the obvious sanding, I would no...

Re: Nestle Win a Choc

I think, on closer inspection Jimmy, not so good. There's some artwork here in Resources which is very good. I may have a new one made. The flash in the top window is also in bad shape. It appears to be printed on clear plastic which flakes off when touched, so it needs to be done also. I think this...

Nestle Win a Choc

Picked up another resto that I may get 'round to, if I ever grow another pair of arms. Bought the first one of this type of machine a couple of months ago (on another post), so a steep learning curve ahead. Would it appear to be complete, other than the obvious trigger missing? Or have I bought a ba...

Let us know what you bought

Nothing posted today - would imagine all at Coventry auction. Why not let us poor unfortunate people unable to attend see what you bought :lol:
