Re: Bryan’s Clock Hands

Hi Dave,

Attached a picture of my hand. Also a picture of the adjustable jackpot slot showing the spring clip. The parts in red paint are the adjustable bits.

Re: Xmas 2020 a year to be forgotten

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas. This has been my first full year on the forum. I have been lucky to have met some of you, chatted to others and found new friends in a year like no other. That’s the positive from an insane year! Looking forward to an auction event at some point in the future where...

Re: Calling Bryans Forks Experts!

I wondered if this was a machine formally owned by Charlie, I saw his collection a few years ago before he sold them all and what a sight it was. All of the streamline cased allwins were screwed to his lounge wall in two neat rows and looked great. He also showed me many original invoices he receiv...

Re: Calling Bryans Forks Experts!

It could be converted which would explain the 1972 date. The numbers on the case and the chromework though do correlate to it being originally a streamlined set of forks.

Re: Calling Bryans Forks Experts!

This all sounds very interesting. All the bolts are indeed painted gloss black. If you have any more information on this that would be great.

Re: Calling Bryans Forks Experts!

I got the supply date from a very helpful guy that checked the number against Bryans records. The red paint does look like a deliberate carefully painted rivet but I don’t know enough about this machine to guess why. It does cause a problem if the forks mech is to far one way as it bangs against the...

Re: Bryans matching number pair Fruitbowl & Clock find new home

History update! After much research I am now able to establish that this pair of machines have indeed spent their life together as the “legend“ suggest. They were purchased as a pair by a Mr Greenwick on 22/11/1965. Sadly no further info as to who he is or where he was based. The search continues......
