Oliver Whales allwin?

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

This allwin recently appeared on Ebay without being sold. Was the machine an Oliver Whales airplane version?

BM Co. Cresta Run identified

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Just noticed this battered old allwin on EBay

Looking at the thickness of the track, was it made by BMCo?

Also there seems to me an extra cut out on the front of the machine. Anybody know what this may be for?

Re: Peter Wilson Sale: 18/07/19

Looking at Peter Wilson auction catalogue this morning and noticed at the bottom of each page they are stating their buyers commission is 26.4% inclusive of VAT @20%. Does this mean they are are only getting 6.4% commission for each sale?

Re: Peter Wilson Sale: 18/07/19

Thanks Rory for the info. I think you're right, when people realise it's not a genuine Wonders backlash, it may put potential bidders off.

Re: Peter Wilson Sale: 18/07/19

Forgot to mention about this Wonders at the auction. I've not seen this machine before. The machine isn't working, ball jammed inside. Does anyone have any information on it? It has a low estimate, just wondered (please excuse the pun) if it may attract a lot of interest.

Viewing day Saturday. Spoke to Chris Large who is in charge of the viewing day, who said that the machines belong to a guy who now lives in America (he wouldn't say who). The machines have been in storage for some time. The condition of the machines - some worked, some didn't, spotted woodworm on so...
