1D Escalator

Hi Also, Has anyone ever attempted to put the teeth back on the escalator??? I have one that has the teeth filed off to allow coins to "roll" along the escalator - I know this was a modification recommended by mills in their catalogues and guides that came with the machines. I was tempted to use one...

Re: Early electric Buckley jackpot

What a cracking little machine mech. Although I'm a mechanical man through and through, this "bespoke" job on a mech is beautiful. I did bid on this machine but it went too high for what it was. Shame your taking the "electric" parts off, would have been nice to see it working. If you ever want to g...

Re: Payramid - Original or Later Version? Your View Please!

Hooray!!!! Finally got the Payramid. Its the 60s model, which is fine. It works great, and the mechanism is outstanding. Just love all the levers, springs and cogs that make it work. When researching this particular model, I was surprised by the lack of images and details about, what is considered b...

Re: Payramid - Original or Later Version? Your View Please!

Thanks Speedwell, it was reading the Melright site that got me confused as to which model I should go for, so I'm now hoping some nice people from this site will give me their experience and opinion. The older version looks "more cluttered" inside, which I love, but if it doesn't work too well, then...

Hi Guys, As some of you may have noticed in the Market Section on this site, I'm hoping to purchase a Bryans Payramid sometime this year, it'll be my big purchase for 2013. However, just need your advise or opinion on which model? I've read that there is a 30s/40s version that has the plain front (n...

Re: Very Clever Idea.. How to Fool Ebay

Hey here's a much better way of selling a slot on ebay.... Sell one of those monthly magazines that gives away a complete product.. but you only get one bit with each mag.. you know the ones I'm on about, build a model Titanic, but it takes about 2000 issues to get all the parts! :HaHa: Sell a magaz...

Re: Very Clever Idea.. How to Fool Ebay

I agree with coppinpr, it's really infuriating that thousands of modern current currency pub-style fruit machines are listed on ebay, but old vintage tatty one arm bandits are pounced on within seconds and removed!!! I'm not convinced that ebay has a "fully" automated system for removal, otherwise i...
