Re: Ebay prices getting out of hand

The fact that we all drove home in the dark was that the second Sunday in November every year tends to see darkness encroach at 3.30pm.

I saw one once at Coventry where the vendor had used a couple of tap washers stuck together and then chamfered to shape. Also of course they have a hole in t...

Do the jackpot banks drop?

Re: Pete Barson wall machine identified

Personally, I doubt the thief concerned appreciated the machine in the slightest.
They probably only saw easy money.
It's very encouraging how infrequently we hear of such activity, and long may that be the situation. |/XX\|

Re: Buckley kicker question

It could.
They do tend to operate efficiently when in the same plane as the original.
If however that solves the problem, it tells you it's not heavy enough gauge as it shouldn't have bent in the first place.

Give it a try and tell us how it goes.

He lost one, it was stolen.
It's probably sitting, unreognised in a collection or arcade somewhere.

Without the round thing on top of the rear V section supported on top the vertical fingers won't retract enough so the discs and reels will be locked. I'm not sure I agree with TF concerning the distance not increasing the height lifted. Adjusting t...

Re: Trouble with Aristocrat reels not releasing

It'll be the Dog & Anvil. Slacken the retaining bolt on the anvil and tap it closer to the dog. That will enable it to engage with the dog sooner and be tilted further back which in turn will push the vertical finger reset bar to its limit. Clearing the fingers from the discs, allowing the reels...
