Re: Bryans allwin anti tilt device

No Mr P I think you're wrong there.
I've only seen one Bryan's Windmill and I didn't see an anti tilt gizmo on that.

Re: Bryans's Fivewin without a cash box door

There's something odd going on with that panel at the bottom.

Re: Rust removal with vinegar

When it comes to freeing up rusty things that are supposed to move but don't want to, I always use diesel. It has astonishing penetrative qualities and of course it's an oil. I learnt this after visiting someone who was into stationary engines. He had some fantastic lumps of cast machinery reclining...

You must be joking Paul!

Re: Advice and help

You say parts don't seem to be used, so we need to know which parts. The photo you show may or may not show modified parts. What it MIGHT show is that some horizontal fingers are missing.

Re: Bell Fruit Strike

Hello there .... I doubt anyone here can help, but you never know. Predominantly we are all decrepit old sods who were born in The Victorian era. Our interest in coin operated/slot machines tends to circle around purely mechanical three reelers and wooden boxes with a ball bearing in them. Whereas I...
