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...

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...
