Re: Lost Ruffler & Walker racer

I'm sure I've played on one of these before. Many, many years ago. I just can't remember where I saw it. I remember thinking 'that's unusual'. Maybe it was that actual one? Did it come from the Yarmouth area Peter?

Re: Oliver Whales wood?

I reckon oak too. I've seen it in various guises over the years pre and post stain. I had some cases made ages ago and no longer own the machines. The cabinet maker said that they were old varieties of oak. Having said that, it might not be. 😉

Re: Electric Hopper Payout (for Aristocrat Quadreel)

How fabulous to see that it still works. I can't comment on the speed of the hopper, however having grown up playing Ballys and the like in the mid-'70s, I would often find the payouts to start slow and pick-up. Why? I've no idea!

I didn't see the War Eagle Console. An interesting find. I haven't seen one either. This was in Essex/Colchester?

Re: Sad news

I have just seen this post. How dreadfully sad. I met Gerry on a few occasions. Another legend leaves us. Sincere condolences Peter and to those who knew him. His legacy lives on.

Re: Ruffler & Walker Allwin List

I couldn't help noticing that the cases of the vending allwins seems to vary between 2 styles. Some have extended tops and others are flush. Anyone know or have any ideas whether there were two different options offered?
