Re: 30s Pinball

Lovely looking machine. Are they the original type balls? No sadly not, I only had three balls and they're rather grubby yellow marble like ones, so not too sure if they were the originals or not. I bought the blue as I couldn't find any others that fit in yellow and noticed another person who had ...

Re: 30s Pinball

Thought you'd like to see my sympathetic renovation of a 1930s Genco Spitfire Pintable. I bought it for around £350 at the Elephant House Auctions back in 2016 and it remained in my garage for the next four years at which point I thought I'd sell it as I didn't have a great deal of time on my hands....

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Surely, it would be more successful if Steve just used the premises as a shop front, like Antique concession stores, whereby sellers drop machines off, a price tag is put on it. Punters come and buy when they like, Steve earns a sellers commission and everyone is happy!!!! I agree completely, this ...

Re: Jennings Witch and Black Cat

It's 5 cents carefully made into 6d. for the British market, probably by the Samson Novelty Co., if the 20-stop number reels are anything to go by. I've yet to own a Victoria 'B'. Let's hope this fad doesn't drive them towards extinction, like Waltzers did with Speedway Arks and Autodromes. Couldn'...

Re: Kraft Machines Brochure and price list 1966-67

I've just noticed a Kraft Automatics machine on Ebay at the moment (think it's listed as a Rotofruit) and great to see it's listed on your brochure here. I have an Easy Push and a with Kraft Automatics sticker on and popped on here to ask if they were distributors for Jamiesons, as I've seen the Eas...
