Re: Opportunity of the decade coming

Hello Badpenny You said to mention wants in advance of Sundays sale. I am looking for a complete Watling Rol-A-Top mechanism on any denomination. I know that there are very few Watling mechanisms about. I would be willing to pay around £500 - £600 if the mechanism is complete and the escalator works...

Re: Last edition

I could not resist and purchased the set on ebay of issues 1-90 for a lot of pennies! Was the last edition in February 2016 No 98?
If so does anyone have copies that they would want to sell of issues 91-98?
Thanks, Laurence

Re: A Rol-A-Top but not as we know it.

Thanks for posting a copy of the Royal Bell advert gameswat. I think that is the answer with the conversion to 6d most likely carried out in the UK. Royal Bell stated that they were reproductions so it is strange that they were then converted to 6d and not decimal coinage. The two that sold in aucti...

Re: A Rol-A-Top but not as we know it.

Yes not great photos and no view of the mechanism in the other slot. On both Rol's the bases do not look right. On the mech that you can see it is clearly not a Watling mech. Hard to determine when they were done. I think that perhaps the price they sold for was around what they were worth? If they ...

Watling tool for cycling the mechanism when it is taken out of the cabinet

I am looking for an original watling handle for cycling the mechanism when it is taken out of the cabinet. It is made of cast metal and has a small screw that tightens the tool to stop it slipping. I have attached a photo of an original tool. It is engraved "compliments of Watling MFG Co". I know th...
