Re: Mills penny machine - info

I don’t know, but the only reason I saw it was because I went to unanswered posts which I do every few weeks, but it is rare for regular contributors to ignore a new poster post so that it drifts onto the next page. As I say it happened to another a week or so back.....in both cases they were new me...

Re: Mills penny machine - info

Hello and welcome, I am not sure why your post has been missed as I use the “recently listed posts” view and your post did not appear until today, second time this has happened with new members and maybe is part of some moderator approval process. Anyway, not seen your machine in its exact form, but...

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

Although my Mechanical Memories arcade is now closed, I shall still be operating machines in Brighton - at my 'Number 2' arcade, where I shall hopefully be able to open on 17th May. It won't be anywhere near as time consuming as previously, but I shall still need to go down to Brighton a couple of ...

Re: Mills clone

Not sure what decals you mean, but the award plate has been modified for the change to the 2p coinage, looks hand done. The jackpot would have been the window at the bottom in white, which will have been removed, again when coming through decimal conversion. The top sign would have had some other aw...

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

That's only my opinion TF. Soon one weekend, I may end up sitting on my own at home while it's all going on in Coventry and/or Derby. JC and/or MH might suddenly announce they're intentions and put me to shame. One of you guys may decide to do something. I fear this situation could well keep bounci...

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

That’s that then...... :!?!:

I suspect with the lack of auctions and crazy high prices, it is just as easy to sell at normal auctions at the moment, plus you don’t have to drive for 3 or 4 hours.......I will be attending my first one next week, back to normality thank god :cool:

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

It would nice if the J’s could run an auction at Coventry, I would certainly support it with a couple of machines. Unsure about Steve’s new idea, still no mention of fees, and closed book bidding surely does not get the maximum amount for the seller. 2 people wanting a particular machine can realis...

Coventry or Collectors auction

I did prompt the J’s on the topic around what is happening at the Elephant a few weeks ago on that thread , but may have been missed.

The red screw is just to tighten the rod, so just loosen slightly and undo the two nuts to remove.

Might be worth checking the kicker once the bundle is out, common issue on aristocrats is old grease gunking them up
