Vintage screws

I really don't know if this is something some collectors might need for their machines or not and, although I do use this company I have never bought "vintage screws " from them, this company describes itself as "The home of vintage screws" so I thought I'd spread the word just i...

I've never seen this glass or those symbols before. One of the hardest glasses I've had to build from scratch (AND the text is in Danish (I think). :o

Re: Mills Escalator Jams

The first thing to do is eliminate the escalator as a cause then you can look elsewhere. Remove the escalator and totally dismantle it. If you have not done this before it will be very dirty. There will be wear on the inside where the coins rub, This can be a cause of jams but it's unlikely as long ...

Re: Jennings Galaxy Rarer 50 Cent Model Identified

Somewhat overpriced at $1700. Doesn't even have a jackpot unit, no UV lighting or fluorescent reel strips, poor replacement strips and award card, I wouldn't pay more than £800 tops. :!?!:

Re: Vintage Slots in Films and Newsreels

In the hugely successful "Big Bang Theory" a very nice,rare and valuable pinball shows up in scenes shot in the comic book store in more than a dozen episodes. It's a 1950 Genco "Rocket". It's never featured in the show but the many glimpses are tantalizing. Artwork by George Mol...

Re: Ebay prices getting out of hand

yes i know what it is, what I meant was simply starting the auction at that point instead of wasting time bidding it up to a point where bidding stops and the item fails to sell, the old idea that reserves encourage more bids (which I guess is what Mr P means) is, in my view at least, no longer vali...

In reality "reserves" are a waste of time. If the item isn't going to be sold under that price then start the auction at that price. If it doesn't sell, the result is the same.

Re: Ebay prices getting out of hand

You could always list it on here as I’ve heard it’s got thoughts of members and at £5 a go I don’t think you will beat that! As I said, I do not use ebay for slot related items. This is for a small business I run. Yes the rate listed is 12.88%, but if you want any chance of selling an item it costs...

Ebay prices getting out of hand

I don't use eBay for slot sales, but I know lots of people do. I do use it a lot for other sales because I don't really have any other options, and believe me, the cost of selling on eBay is getting crazy. If you want to get your product seen at all it's going to cost you a staggering 22% (or more) ...

Jennings Continental Star Chief identified

The "Bonanza Casino" in Reno contacted my site asking if I could ID this Jennings machine they have on display in a glass case on their slot machine floor. I was pleased to be able to help. It is a Jennings you rarely see, a "Constellation" made I believe exclusively for casinos....

Re: Buckley kicker question

Is that not an earlier attempt to repair the worn kicker? If it is, then the changes you made to the kicker would not help. It could be that the added kicker extension is made of a softer metal and has bent slightly over the years (it looks it). If so, bend it back and test again.
