Re: Green Ray Television restoration

I have been lucky enough to own at least 4 green rays over the years, the first I bought in 1990, but I can only find photos for 2. Still got lots of cards somewhere

I can't remember if I tried it. The John Bull was there but was promised to someone else, but looked incomplete.
I did later buy his French Domino, a lovely machine, which he said was the first machine he bought.

Re: Nicholson “Operating Theatre” & Canova “Problem”

I bought the Nicholson out of John's basement. I believe he got it from Roger Gillman when it was advertised in his newsletter in the 1980s. I sold it decades ago, but it looks exactly the same as I remember. It's even got the figure of a character from Ghostbusters which John had placed on the balc...

Re: Postage stamp vending machine collector

I think he only made three, just for his own amusement.
The Bird Watchers and the Peeping Toms look to be the same machine. Check out the grain of the wood.

Re: Spicers slot auction 25 Feb 22

The cowboy was resin and made around 1990 in the UK. I bought a nearly complete one and 2 kits. I did not rate them and swopped them for a couple of allwins!

Re: Kraft Darts

This has had an interesting history and travelled miles. I think found in Essex around 1990 then sold to a German collection, then got sold to an American collection and ended up in an auction there, I think in Florida.
