Re: Electro-mechanical Wall Machines

I stumble upon your videos from time to time coinop, probably seen most of them now. Never left a comment, I'm not sure I know how to! Great work though, please keep it up I'd love to take credit, but have to confess I upload them on behalf of a friend. My efforts would prove a lot less entertainin...

Re: Job lot at auction

Coin-op, I remember you and I discussed this machine when you first acquired it - didn't one of us suggest Myers, or am I thinking of something else? Whilst looking for coin mech pics for T, I came across a pic of a Road Test machine. This is what think we must have talked about and I pointed out t...

I vaguely remember a conversation, but that’s about it. Not sure if we just floated a few names as I can’t figure now why Myers proved a candidate.

Re: Job lot at auction

I don't know the maker but maybe the owner of this one has more info: South Shields Museum Exhibition I haven't been able to ascertain the manufacturer. It's been put to me that it's Ruffler & Walker (though, if so, the mechanism bears no similarity to their better known two player games). As you c...

Re: Hawtins Rolling Road

It's interesting to note that there doesn't appear to be a Rolling road amongst the Steer-a-Ball production line. Although, admittedly, they appear to have done production in batches and it may be that the basic Steer-a-Ball cabinets in the picture were destined to be Rolling Roads. Edit - It is int...

Re: Hawtins Rolling Road

JC I'm a little confused with the track layout in the picture posted by coin-op (in the museum). It appears to be more or less the same as a Steer-a-Ball, but with a squiggly bit that doesn't seem to do anything. One can clearly see the path the ball has taken, and I really can't see what the squigg...

Re: Hawtins Rolling Road

they both stand on legs, which makes me wonder if the surviving Rolling Road has been cut down Interestingly, the Hawtins catalogue gives the height of their steeraball games as 42 inches. My Hawtins steeraball, with legs, is around 36 1/2 inches, whilst the Rolling road, without legs, but with 1/2...

Re: Hawtins Rolling Road

Yes, I'd always thought it was Hawtins and just assumed the Ahrens reference was a mistake. As far as I'm aware, Ahrens didn't make Steer-a-Balls. Well, if that is the case, then there are three interesting points. Firstly, the Hawtins steeraball is a different size to the Rolling Road (the latter ...
