Re: Caille / Clement & Whales Countertop disc machines

This could be a Jennings Little Duke conversion as the coin slot is facing to the right. You're right Dave, this was a Little Duke conversion by Whales, had the original Jennings handle and 50-60 years of a family of woodworm, but was all there including back door. In fact I tried it and 3rd penny ...

Re: Morphy April 2024 auction catalogue

I didn’t follow the auction all the way and the way it works online you cannot quickly see realised prices… I only had a go on one British machine, but bidding blind so set a low target…

Well done on getting something. !THUMBS!

Re: Toffee and the Klaxon motor gearbox

I'm also no expert but I do know that gearbox grease was/is the norm for this sort of gearbox, but as I remember it it was injected in through a nipple, so, in this case, I don't know if the oil cap and oil filter makes a difference and it should be oil, but it seems unlikely. Gearbox grease is, of...

Hello there, I wonder what a PC-55/88 is !PUZZLED! Aristocrats manuals are not a published item, some collectors have copies of original parts catalogues including myself.

Toffee and the Klaxon motor gearbox

Trying to sort why a viewer that was running slowly, I had omitted to check inside the motor gearbox and discovered one of the worst hard grease toffee attacks I have had. :shock:… I should have checked this in the first place, but I am going to ask an obvious question as I'm less familiar with the ...

Re: Bryans Clock with fruit dial

Bran Tub - a vendor. Just an update, as many are aware lots of these have turned up. The conversion was done to simplifiy the Clock as many punters found them a little hard to grasp. The conversion made then easy visually to understand and helped the machine take more Money. I was told that Glenvil ...

Re: What did I buy?

Bargain,

Looking at the part numbers, the imprint is weak, as such maybe a produced machine, of which there are many and they often use Sega mechs and the hoods are totally different… Nice and cheap though. :cool:

I always wondered if this machine was an April fool from Mr Bryan and could never see it as a serious arcade machine, once played, never played again …….as for value, how much does an empty box cost :o

I am sure skulduggery has gone on for years at auctions from hiding items people don’t want others to see, pilfering, through to swapping lot numbers……when I have pointed things out to certain auctions houses, they often show little interest…

Re: Picking locks

Before I assume anything, have you lost the key and it is locked…… Best best if you can is to try getting in through the back if screwed on… You can sometimes lever the door open without damaging the wood or try getting someone to pick it. They usually have between three and 5 levers, depending on t...

This version like the below one sold the other week at Taylor’s. It was suggested to be Firmans. Another sold at the Elephant years ago. You can see the off centre jackpot and incorrect I believe early Jennings handle on this.

Re: Essex Football & Ahrens Great Polo Game identified

Looks like you got the cabinet panels for both machines. Would they not sell the Polo? !PUZZLED! The frame looks good and if seized, a combination of a good soak in a solvent and maybe use of heat could help free parts, just not at the same time. I remember the Spicer football game a couple of years...
