Re: Oliver Whales Treble Chance

To make it look like the original mount it on acrylic (3mm or 2mm), then attach another clear piece (or glass) the same size over the top :cool:

Re: Unusual UK conversion on a Jennings

I would say what you have there is a total reproduction and not a conversion of a Jennings Governor, no offence! It's certainly not mine!! I don't think the owner is a collector. I think it's just a piece of interesting furniture that he wants to make look a bit better... and it will! Almost anythi...

Unusual UK conversion on a Jennings

Ths not very nice UK conversion on a nice Jennings governor light up struck me as unique as it has both "BARS" and "TIC TAC TOE" (some of the BARs are also marked with TIC,TAC or TOE but not all (you can see one on the first photo). The owner has decided to replace the nasty top glass with something...

Ruffler & Walker candy floss machine

Can anyone shed any light on the date and maker of this R&W supplied candy floss machine that looks very much like an early radiogram? Judging by the label and the cabinet I suspect from their early days. The owner is in Australia and tells me his grandfather brought the machine with him when he emi...

Re: Wondermatics wonder win back from the dead

Very good job indeed and the real feather in your cap is that you are saving machines (and doing it very well) that could so easily have rotted away and been lost. !!THUMBSX2!!

Re: Jennings Model info please

Thanks for the help, my thought was also Pace. The enquiry came with several other machines the guy needs to sell, some quite special, including wall vendors, much like chewing gum vendors, but with cigarette logos. I thought this sounds interesting :cool: so I asked where he is.................Alas...

Jennings Model info please

Can anyone tell me anything about this Jennings(?) machine. I have an inquiry sent to my www.penny-arcade.info site asking if I can ID this model, I can't! Perhaps an early model in the Victoria series? I don't remember seeing those tall jackpot windows or the square jackpot surround on a Jennings. ...
