Re: What is this?

Hi dutchboy, I’ll try that, I usually end up cutting and pasting into google translate but it’s a pain. What we need is a friendly Dutchman who can bid on our behalf. 🤔

Re: What is this?

Seen some nice machines on this site, but it’s only in Dutch, so haven’t a clue. Shame the developers haven’t added English to the site.

Re: Reel spin issue

Thanks BP. I can physically push the bar all the way back into the slot and this will pick up all 3 brake shoes, but it doesn’t do it on its own.

I’ll have a look at the mech again tonight, but I compared it with my other Mills and all connecting linkages seem the same.

Re: Reel spin issue

Coppin, I’ve had the whole mech stripped down, cleaned and rebuilt. Everything seems the same as my other mills mechanism except for this one issue. It’s got me stumped as I cannot see anything that could be adjusted or re-set to gain more movement.

Reel spin issue

Hi, I’ve got a pseudo Mills mech and for some reason the sliding arm that controls the braking does not retract the full length of the slot with the result that the first reel stops almost immediately. Can anyone advise on any method of adjustment? I’m comparing it with a genuine Mills mech and cann...

Re: Mills extraordinary mechanism

This isn’t the actual machine I’m working on, it’s just similar. Mine has the gold award and a side mint vendor.

Mills Extraordinary mechanism

I’m currently servicing a Mills Extraordinary similar to this one. Does anyone have a photo of the escalator and the mechanism?

Re: Peter Wilson Sale: 18/07/19

The ones to worry about are those sitting at home bidding on the internet, they're the ones that go whappy with the bid button while assuming everything is in perfect condition. BP :cool: Also, when bidding online, if 5 bidders press their button at the same time then it puts in 5 consecutive accum...

Re: Reproducing Cabinets

Was your contact with Berten recently as their website is still down and not due to registration Funny, I sold an oak Jennings cabinet recently to a fellow member. Am sure there have been a few originals on eBay recently, probably overpriced though. I’ll just have to keep my eye open for them. Dave...
