Re: Aristocrat Olympic pay sides don't push forward

Most likely jammed coins, empty them out and usually you'll find some fell in vertically.

Re: Alwin lock and other questions

The cashbox locks on these earlier machines are usually the larger Yale types as they weren't so bothered with people getting into the upper mech.

Re: Mutoscope lens

DD, oops. If you'd searched on here first you'd have seen an older post where I listed the exact sizes of the two glass Muto lenses. Large model lense = 4 & 1/4" wide x 2 & 1/8" high - fits cast iron models and big head tin models. Small model lense = 3 & 7/8" wide x 1 & 9/16" high - fits small head...

Re: Silver Jubilee - strange payout?

I wonder if that F/O stamped before the serial is for "Foreign Order"? As don't believe it was for Aussie usage as we didn't allow coin jackpots, unless for illegal placement of course!

Re: Seven mysteries of the Saxony allwin

This unusual Reserve Ball Allwin or Winalot sold recently in the USA and note the added token or possibly coin payout unit, never seen the like before. From what I can make out it steps up slowly each payout and eventually deposits the token/coin as special random prize to the player. Appears to be ...

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

Hey, I think I have to occasionally post something that might interest a few users here. I get so much fun, and have gotten so much help from the site, that I think you have to be willing to give at least as much in return. In a perfect world I'd post a lot more, but keeping a close track and writin...

Re: Shakespeare says...........

So look what just turned up in an email from Antique Archaeology! A nice hi-res clear photo for me to work from and remake my own card. I'd totally forgotten about asking them, I did say no rush though.

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

Oh, I forgot to mention, because this cabinet used mixed woods it had been Japanned black differently than the previous all oak cabinet. This example threw me to begin with as it had already been stripped back to bare wood a long time ago and all the wood had aged to a similiar colour. But on closer...

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

how long did it take you? Not easy to figure out arrg, first off I never keep track of time on anything I own. And secondly I took this one apart late last year to copy parts for the previous example that was missing mech parts, and doubled up on some of the other jobs needing doing like restoring ...

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

OK, 3rd example done and on the wall in my house as my keeper. My fave Allwin for sure, particularly this later version with all the work done by just the trigger, truly genius engineering! The funny thing is on pulling the case apart to re-glue and re-finish I found that the top and bottom horizont...
