Re: Man United special edition Sega bandit

Seen a few custom Segas over the years, a Spurs edition, West Ham and Chelsea. I think non-collectors just like the machines and want it to fit their man-cave and interests.

Re: Electroplating (chrome, nickel etc.)

Having followed various techniques and methods and inventions since mid-80s (various car magazines had articles on said subject, Chroming!) even after 35 years no one (not even 3M) have managed to invent a simple spray for domestic users to achieve true chrome finishes, trust me, I've tried every ho...

Re: Jennings Governor

It's an inhibitor for the payouts. A small catch that can stop all the vertical pay levers from moving forward through the holes in the pay discs (those on the side of the reel bundle). It features on Jennings, Mills, Sega + and comes in to operation if a token is played (as you don't want it paying...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I'm sure you won't see EH doing the usual auctions again, why go to all this long term bother of a website and on line bid path, if he was going to continue with regular auctions? With no mention whatsoever from Steve regarding "getting back to normal auction days!" I doubt we'll see them ...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

I take my hat off to Steve and Elephant House for trying re-establish the auction business albeit virtual, but nothing can replace the thrill of the day at an auction. I don't fully understand why he has built an elaborate website and "sealed" bids that has no benefit to buyer or seller th...

Re: Media blast set up for home use

Just remember to get a large compressor otherwise you won't get the power to blast anything. I use a 200Litre tank with 145psi. Along with a big compressor you need good water /damp traps in the pipe line otherwise the gun will constantly clog up with lumps of media. As mentioned elsewhere, its a me...

Re: Mills coin tube detecting lever assembly How does it work?

The detecting lever mech was an interesting concept by Mills, removed in later models as it caused more problems with coin tubes running out of coins! The idea for this check lever was to ensure the jackpot was filled as quickly as possible once paid out. Although Mills had the reserve jackpot, this...

Re: Is it Classed as Trade Stimulator? Info Please!

Thank you for the info. Just trying to collect as much detail about it as possible. Looks complete and original. Not sure if it's worth cleaning or leaving as it is?

Is it Classed as Trade Stimulator? Info Please!

What is it? Can anyone help with a recent machine I picked up. I'm putting this message out there in the hope of gaining more info about this old device. Very heavy probably cast iron, all complete. Has the top banner but broken off cleanly. I dropped a coin in and it played and paid a token on the ...
