Re: Oliver Whales floor-standing & counter-top 3D stereoviewers

Yes, definitely the same model. Interesting to see another example as I had wondered if it was a 'one off' due to the fact that a number of the table models have turned up, yet no other floor standing machines. Just a shame that after ten years of waiting the one which has surfaced does not have a t...

Pat Gresham

Sadly, adding to the recent news regarding the passing of several other well known figures in the slot machine community, I have only just heard the Pat Gresham passed away on 31 October this year. Many will know of Pat as the wife of the late Jon Gresham, but to those that knew her that certainly d...

Re: Compton’s star soccer

Thanks for both replies. I’ve assumed the figures were glued onto bespoke triangular bases ( so the figures could be either bespoke or off the shelf). These figures seem to have been used on all examples of this machine that I’ve seen. Strangely, on my machine one team is in tact whilst the other ha...

Crompton’s Star Soccer

Does anyone know if the football figures in Crompton’s Star Soccer were bespoke or off the shelf. If the latter, what exactly are they? Thanks.

Re: Henry Powell

I did have a brief chat with Henry. Obviously, there’s two sides to every story and ultimately, there’s a point where it’s best to let things drop and just move on. It does seem that the tale is a little more involved in that a price was given and there was a ‘what’s your best price question’. Also,...

Re: Henry Powell

I spoke with Henry this afternoon. He recently had an accident, and whilst on the road to recovery and working, he's behind on some of his workload and trying to catch up. So, hopefully you'll hear from him sooner than later, but I guess things have to take their place in the queue. Personally, I've...

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...
