Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

So Steve is not involved at all as all automated, you get to see only the highest bid and you either accept or reject whatever price it is…..you never know any bids below the highest if there are any and you have no idea who has bid including any winner….

Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

I was sceptical at first, but it seems the format tends to stop the absurd price escalation we've seen on eBay of late. Affordable allwins have been a thing of the past for years, with even recent builds attracting prices which would only be achieved by good historic types. Yes a BMCo Allwin sold f...

Re: Prices Night Light vending machine

There you go, did use the advance and standard search function with no results, never mind, still nice machine, but would prefer £1100 cash 😂

Price's Night Light vending machine

I forgot to add this vending machine which sold in September at BBR for £1100 plus commission. Don’t remember seeing it in the results page, but a cute little machine obviously designed for the hotel market. From the British Automatic Supply Syndicate Ltd

Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

Re: Rusty Sega

Hello and welcome, Rather than respond n multiple threads, some answers….. Glass for escalator window: just cut a piece yourself. Very easy with a cheap glass marker, ruler and some scrap glass. Lighting change: I assume you mean moving to LEDs. If so, I will not answer this one as personally I hate...

Re: Allwin Double Your Money

So I have about three of these machines and they all have Yale locks, like on many other allwins like Oliver Whales. Your lock may be a replacement, as it is silver and does not fit snuggly to the edges. There is a number on top and the Yale locks are numbered, I believe, 1 to 15. Are there any mark...

Re: Still need a 1p S10 Mechanism

Over the years many of these and the other floor standing Bell Fruit machines have sold and often for very little. The appeal of these is the theme/glass with fighter plane and some may pay for this, but luck of the draw. A colleague of mine had a load of them and other similar machines, knocking th...

Re: Who kept check on the operators ?

I would imagine, this would have only been relevant when the average payout had to be displayed, which I have no idea when this occurred, I am guessing some time in the 1970’s based on machines I have seen over the years. Given there was no minimum %, before this you could reduce to what you wanted,...
