The two large screws on the top edge nearest the player appear to be the key to opening it are totally rusted in.
Try heating the screws with a hot soldering iron, that might free them up. |/XX\|

Re: Hoopers Automatics Skill Score pinball machine

I'm not sure when these were made, but they look very '30s, as I was awake anyway...... lol. I thought I would add this, the badge on the machine i had states 146 Pentonville Road as Hoopers address, and according to Paul Braithwaite they relocated there in 1934, so that should give us the earliest...

Re: Hoopers Automatics Skill Score pinball machine

Out of interest how many balls did you get for one coin? You said they were all released at once. Did the plunger just use the ball queue up one at a time as you played till they were gone? I don't have the machine anymore, but as far as I remember, and it was 10 years ago, there were 5 steel balls...

Re: Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

Sorry to hear you are struggling with the motor speed, when I found you the Lucky Throw machine I recommended a 12 rpm motor thinking it would be ok for the job, I think the original Crouzet motor would have been 10 rpm, so not a lot of speed difference ?? I think a 6 rpm would be too slow?? "Crouze...

Now that I have gotten this far I now see I have to take EVERYTHING apart to get to the back image to replace it. I might be in over my head on this. I am not sure ...

Re: Jamiesons Automatics Maxi dropcase machine in Norway

I've spoken to my dad - that's him in the photo wearing red jacket and cool beard - and I can confirm that unfortunately there are no manuals etc in the Jamieson family vaults!! Just a thought?? Do you have any way of contacting Laurie Binns family, I know he had a lot to do with the design side, m...
