I don't, any more than, "the BBC never does any of their own research". 'All' and 'never' are hyperbolic.

Re: John Taylors slot machine auction: 12/03/24

Are you saying if the BBC had contacted you and asked if that estimate was likely to be correct you would have said yes? Nope. I said I saw no fault in them factually reporting what the auctioneer thought the machines might sell for. Canvassing slot machine collectors' opinions on whether the aucti...

Re: John Taylors slot machine auction: 12/03/24

trust the BBC to have no idea, take what they were told as fact and do no checks of their own... I wouldn't expect the BBC to second guess auctioneer's estimates. Besides, who would they check with? I'm not sure you or I could have confidently predicted the outcome with games that haven't passed ha...

Re: Green Ray Television restoration

Thank you Tim. So it would seem 30 cards was the full 'standard' set from Automatic Supplies of Birmingham, although one or two other printers produced variants. Sweetmeats has sent hi-res scans of the set which I'll put up next week. Although the ink's purple, we think it's because the green pigmen...

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

I think the inner castings are mostly aluminium, and the outer fittings might be plated brass? Additional to the other suggestions, regular squirts of penetrating oil might help. The key will be patience; don't try to rush it. Keep trying to gently work pieces free after a few weeks soaking, wigglin...

How to modify your profile

Jimmy asked the following and, as it's not obvious, I thought a public reply might be helpful: I'm probably missing something but how do you modify your profile details. I found how to swap Avatar but thought it was about time to update my machine list. When you're logged into the Forum, find the dr...
