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. A clockwork motor yes but that was all.

Re: interesting shock machine

I'm a little dumbfounded Dave that you don't seem to own a copy of Automatic Pleasures by Nic Costa?! This is a great and very early machine pictured in there dating from 1888 called the Corinthian by Electro-Medical Battery Co. The earliest British shock patent is only 1886.

Re: ABT Target Skill restore

Great game, the most fun of all the ABT pistols because of the animated target gallery. They packed a lot into such a small game.

Re: Rust removal with vinegar

Thanks for the tip Special. Appears the vinegar didn't eat any of the remaining plating off, just the corrosion?

Re: Clown Catcher payout conversion

Definitely not a faded red or green as the hidden and unexposed edges are a slightly darker brown Cool, well there's a little more variation than I thought!

Re: Palm reading fortune tellers

So it would appear that Arnold went to an enamel sign company to make these signs and they accidently added in the holes since 99% of wall mount signs used them. I've had this happen myself enough times that I can totally see it happening. The reason I became a restorer is because of those endless m...
