Re: Time to ........

Very nice job BP - Slick is a great machine and definitely worth spending time on restoration. We spoke recently on the dog and wotsit, so the colour scheme comes as no surprise - looks good. I note on the before picture that the instructions appear to be missing (not uncommon with these machines) b...

Samson slick, impossible to operate due to its unreliability.
I've operated mine for over twenty years and never had a problem - one of my most reliable machines.

Re: Fill Em Up questions

I used my micrometer and all the balls in the machine measure 35/64, and all the new ball 9/16. That's a 1/64 difference, but it makes all the difference in the world! There has been debate previously re 9/16" balls, which is pretty much standard size for most allwins. I recall that the correct siz...

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

Page 4 now online, with number 5 well on the way. It's shaping up nicely, but we could still use a few more lots (particularly machines of course)! So if you have anything, please let me know in the next couple of days.
!!CHEERS!!

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

For those who didn't receive the latest update from me, there's been a change in policy re. spares. Having had a couple of conversations with others, it's been agreed that we will include individual spares in the auction. So if you have any bandit, allwin, electrical spares that you wish to enter, p...

Re: Today's quiz "name that machine"

As no one has mentioned it yet, No. 1 is an Exhibit Supply Co. Imperial crane.
So what's the prize for getting machine No 2?

Edit: Just noticed No. 9 is an electric shock machine with a very attractive aluminium front - the subject of another thread on this forum.

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

For those who have not yet noticed, page three is now up online. There's some nice stuff, including a full set of Bryans 3 Ball allwins, all in superb condition. There's more entries coming in, so page 4 should be online in a couple of days or so - but it's coming in very slowly! So please, if you h...
