Great that you've become interested in owning some old machines. Just remember that with good restoration "Less is More" ! And especially so as you're just starting out. Try and keep as much of the fine patina as you can because that's what makes each and every machine totally unique in the world.

Great machines! I really love those Easypush machines. Do you know how much they go for generally?

Hi Francos,
A nice shooter. Is it electric? Do the ducks turn round?

Thanks guys. The Duckshoot is not electric - you pull back the trigger and you put 1c in, or you can use a new 6d, then you aim and you shoot ducks. You will always get a gum at end of the game. As for the pusher, anything from £500 upwards. The KitKat is full of chocolate which the grandchildren put there. 20p in - I have to fill regularly.

Thanks. Didn't want to over do it with the cleanup. Wanted to keep some of its patina. Still a long way to go to sort the mech out and new springs and some reel strips. If anyone can help on reel strips thanks.

Welcome. You have some great machines.
How good are the duck hunt machines firing the coins at the ducks.

Duck hunt is great you can shoot the ducks with your coin knocks them down no problem then you can reset ducks with leaver on side plus you get a gum every time even if you miss
