As has already be said, many thanks to the organisers of the event and the people who brought their machines down to sell.

The main play field artwork is fine but unfortunately I don’t have a topflash so I was wondering whether anyone had an image of an original or a decent photo? Any help wou...

Re: J.F Frantz MFG. Co. Long Shot restoration and top pendant

So after a short hiatus I have finally got around to finishing my Long Shot kicker/ catcher. After scarfing in new oak and restoring the cabinet I managed to source a new top marque from Crow River Trading (highly recommendable and great communication). I also managed to persuade my old Man to machi...

Re: Facebook joblot of machines sale

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

I thoroughly enjoyed it and was nice to speak to many like minded people about the hobby we all love, It’s not often I bump into people with similar interests in slots so it was good to h...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

I'll miss the Coventry auction this year, first one I've missed in 7 years. I like to stay in Coventry the night before, have a curry at one of the best curry houses I know (and I know a LOT), get to the club early to move a few things around for the two J's, claim my usual table and comfy chair, a...
