Re: Elephant House Auctions

Although I have bought machines from Steve when he ran at Huntingdon racecourse and also at the Elephant house, I would find it impossible to sell as HE never answers his emails or phone ! Once tried to sell a very collectible pinball (£1500 to £2000 ) with him and gave up, put it on eBay. Also if y...

Re: Oliver Whales wood?

The Oliver Whales Allwin looks to be in a Stevenson and Lovett case.

The cases on my Oliver Whales are oak and so is my Conveyor.

The other 3 flaps sold with some of the fixing screws, some were missing when I removed them. I offered a partial refund of £4 to buy 4 set screws f...

Re: Xmas 2020 a year to be forgotten

I like the idea of coppinprs auction bubble, we could even have a “bar support bubble”, a “bandit bubble” and a “Allwin bubble”.
Seriously I hope we all stay safe and well . And hope to see you all at next years auctions.
