Not my best job to date but it was a real state to start with so I guess I shouldn't expect miracles!

I was pleasnantly suprised how easy it was to replace the missing reel strips - actually just needed to manually line up a couple of known combinations and then it was easy!

Re: Help with my latest project

And here is the finished article..!

On reflection I think I may have somehow managed to miss polishing the front plates looking at the picture and the bumper I obviously did polish!

Re: Caille Centre pull victory Bell in Aberdeen??

I would be careful with things like this; I've had a couple of people try and scam me as responses to wanted ads I've placed on Gumtree. One person was trying to sell me two machines of theirs and one of their neighbours. Pictures sent were a bit dodgy and really small rs, no exif data in the pictur...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Wow 7.30 thats a very very long day especially with a drive home somewhere after as well. It wasnt a wasted trip for me as I had arranged to collect a machine from someone who was going to the auction and sold a couple of bits as well. I totally agree some very deceptive photo's - just highlights th...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Thanks for the prices,

I actually left before the auction started in the end. Nothing there really jumped out at me enough. Was nice to see a few people ive met before and some new people as well.!

Re: Cowboy Polk type machine

I was wondering how much that would go for. I was thinking perhaps around the 1500 mark so I was way off. Not my cup of tea at all and I suspect they aren't as nice to use with that style handle. More of a novelty display item. The bandit itself doesn't look particularly nice either not sure why but...
