Re: Tumbling Prices…

OK - in view of the above comments probably the wrong time to put a Circle Skill machine up for sale but I've put one in the Market on this site anyway as I need the space! (or to be honest, my wife does. dirtdog )

Re: Play-Ball allwin question

If it's the thumb stop there's one on eBay at the moment but it's a bit pricey if you don't need the other bits that are with it!

Sega Progressive Star electrics

I have a Sega Progressive Star which I am slowly working on but just one question: The electric lead had been cut off prior to my buying this at auction (presume for legal reasons?). I'm happy to dabble with the mechanicals but a bit wary about electrics. Before I investigate further :zapa: is there...

How to date a Bradley's Challenger?

I've put my Challenger on the Market section as I reluctantly have to sell it but realised, belatedly, I have no idea of its age. Are there any clues how to date it, as I'm now curious? I gather the metal instruction plates are a clue as later ones were plastic (?) and the machine number is stamped ...

5 Fruit Flavours Polo Allwin

Re: Shortages having a knock on effect for us?

I still use Allan James (Amicus) - always reasonable, never charged more than £70, and totally reliable with timing. Used Allan 4 times in last 12 months so presume he is still operating? tbh Shipley are a joke

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

Thanks for info grains - there is no reference to a meter on the machine and there are no stars on the reels so I guess this one was converted from the original and new reel strips (they are quite "new" looking) and new blanking plate fitted. So I will leave that part as is and concentrate...

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

Thanks for your advice coppinpr, and pointer to BP's post - I'll have a good look at the escalator over the next few days - I assume dismantling it is fairly starightforward (ref spring, you are of course right - I should've gone to specsavers !LOOK! ) Hi grains - simple answer is no - nothing behin...
