Looking for a restoration project for the winter?

Postby coppinpr » Fri Nov 15, 2019 1:32 pm

Looking for a restoration project for the winter? Well this would keep you busy,and all for only £2,000 !
I do like the description " One Arm Bandits 10 In Total anistocrat Olympic And Jubilees Plus Cromptom 6 play pusher vandalised but all works" and "All the one arm bandits need work"

"All the one arm bandits need work".
Nice to see an honest description.

Well ..... I'd go so far as to say Rol-A-Top shaped top casting, based on the evidence.

Surprisingly this assorted heap is worth at least half of the start price, no Rol-A-Top though, and the pusher is scrap, rescue the motors only.

Yes, I think if he had left out the pusher altogether (who's going to want to haul it away) and set the price at £1000 "make an offer". There would be at least some interest, although it's worrying that of the 10 bandits there are only photos of 2 cases and one of those appears to be both empty and have a hole smashed in the top, and the other has a cash tray full of parts. Are they the best on offer?
