Re: Fayre Win by Whales

So this Fayre Win just sold at an auction in NSW today for $2400 + 16.5% ($396) = $2796 AUD or 1480 GBP! There were a number of coin-ops in the auction.

Fayre Win by Whales

Well here's an allwin by OW I've never seen before, un-named on the backflash and that weird trigger guard, though is listed in Braithwaite's book. Typically for an allwin in Australia the plastic is going bad.

BP, agree with the buyer to take a lower offer and cash for the rest in person on pickup?

Probably just gave that price to eBay to pay a much smaller commission on what he actually took.

Re: Disc with sun, moon, and star symbols for Caille Ben Hur

Hello again, I believe the graphics you like were only used for the French market machines, so you'll probably have a lot more luck asking over there.

Re: Gearbox for Conveyor

So Andreas - you have a Fault! haha. I happen to be working on two examples right now. My own with original motor, and another for a customer that I had to find a motor suitable in my parts, because what was in his was garbage. The speed out of the original gearbox output running on 240 volts is 140...

Re: What is your dream machine?

Currently restoring another Conveyor and while cleaning the four wheels noticed that all the long wires had been bent to make the losing sections larger and winning smaller!

Re: Earth Satellite

Completed machine with blonde finished oak replicated as original, which I think very much suits the artwork and furniture fashion of late 1950s. Cabinet was 14 separate pieces of wood when I started - and never touched it with a piece of sand paper!

Re: BMCo auto prize payout allwin signage?

So as an update, the collector that consigned this to me got to see the machine in person before I found a buyer for him, and a few days later rang to say he wanted to purchase the marquee from me and keep the machine! I was happy because I'm sure he appreciates what I did more than anyone else in t...
