Re: Das Henkeltöpfchen

Sweetmeats,
The machine does not pay any tokens. It simply pays whatever coins/tokens you put in.
Once inserted, the coin/token rolls down the visible chute until it reaches the dented payout wheel.

Re: Wilhelm Fürst coin flicker

Hi Youngerap, I'll do some digging in my hard drive for you, as the actual machine is currently dismantled in 100 pieces in my attic (the cabinet was covered with very thick coats of ugly brown paint, and I had it stripped). Let me see what I can come up with (no promises!). Any particular part you ...

Re: Wilhelm Fürst coin flicker

For what it's worth : I own a 'Das Henkeltöpfchen' also called 'Oorglaasje' (1927, Wilhelm Fürst) and it works on the German 10 pfennings coin.

Re: Oliver Whales EASY PERM - Missing the arrow...

Thanks Gameswat,
Had not thought of doing it myself. It's a good idea I guess, but to be honest I don't think I have the skills to achieve something convincing enough... But thanks anyway.

Dear All, I recently bought this lovely Oliver Whales Easy Perm. It is in stunning condition, but as you can see on the picture, it is missing the arrow above the payout knob. Would love to complete this machine, so am looking for a spare one (preferably an original, but would consider a good qualit...

Re: Scrap metal allwin

Great job, jonathans257 !
Am curious : does it pay when you win ? If so, can you describe the payout mechanism ? You did not seem to go the classic 'payout tube & slide' route. Am very curious & interested to see what design you came up with.
Anyway, congrats.
Looking forward to seeing that video...

Re: Scratchbuilt copy of Cascade type game

I just love those dropcase machines !. Tobias Ballman (http://www.t2balli.de) used to sell all the necessary bits to built this kind of machine (complete kits with detailed instructions, trips, case, coin acceptor, etc...). He also had tons of pictures of similar projects. Unfortunately, his website...

Re: War Eagle - reproduction or not?

The other way is the jackpot check plate is solid , not removable. Too expensive to make that part seperately now. Hi, Sorry for my ignorance, but which part is the " jackpot check plate " ? (could it be, by any chance, the small corner-shaped vertical plate on the front casting of the machine, to ...

Re: Bryans Elevenses & Brenner Skill Fun explained

Have always wanted one! I think they are really neat.
Maybe I am pushing my luck but.... you would not have a video of the inside mechanism in action, would you ?

Thanks, Christophe.
