Re: Battery Operated Vintage Mini Pinball

Pennymachines, you are absolutely right regarding the weight of balls and accuracy of setting the contacts... what a pain in the backside they're proving to be. However, a great little table top game, and fun to play.

Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

Two things bother me about this new system. Not advertising the minimum bid to be in with a shout of winning. for example, 9 people are interested in a machine which the seller has put a £1000 reserve. all 9 blind bidders pitch bids ranging from £500 to £700. When the sale ends, not a single interes...

Vicman Automatic Machine Co. Countess pinball identified

Came across this recently, a small early pinball type machine. Plays on 1d. Has battery for score needle to move either +/- depending if a ball rolls over a red or green channel. Slightly bigger than a laptop computer, about 6" deep. Anyone know anything about these or has anyone seen one befor...

Re: Stevenson & Lovett Conveyor Ball Size

OK just found out an 18mm ball works perfect, just in case anyone needs to know.

Hi Guys,
Anyone know what size the original Conveyor ball size is? It appears to be quite large.

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...
