Re: Aristocrat Clubmaster

The whole reason for the hole in tokens is so the machine can differentiate between coin and token. When set up for this, the machine will accept both coin and tokens, but due to the hole the machine will send all coins straight into the cashbox, while tokens go into the payout and jackpot to be rec...

Re: Oh Dear...Broken Allwin Flick mech casing

I'd suggest brazing or hard silver solder for this job over welding, because you can see into that hole and brazing done well will be invisible on both sides, while welding leaves a lumpier finish, and actually quite a delicate job to weld such a small thin part.

Re: Harper Cigarette machine

Sell as is, there are so many parts in that thing and once you start pulling it apart you open a can of corroded worms! Unless you really know what you're doing then best to leave it to someone who does know and has the knowledge and required skills. Sometimes it works out well to mildly clean up pi...

Re: BMCo machines - what kind of finish to the wood?

I shall endeavour to find a suitable varnish with perhaps a low satin sheen. Don't think they should be in any way glossy'. I prefer to dull down all my finishes with very fine #0000 steel wool, this gives a nice aged worn look. I do this after each layer of shellac which loses finish on the high p...
