Re: Mills Hi Top Projects

Hi,
just renovated 2 Mill's Hi Tops during lockdown and like you I wanted to keep the crackle finish. I found thinned down Hammerite dabbed on with a short bristled brush gave a great finish. Trick is do it quick and don't brush the paint on. Two coats worked best I found.
Pics attached.

Re: 12 Win Clock

Thanks for the link - interesting and seems it was a makeover by Glenvil then. Is there any way of dating Bryan's machines by their serial numbers?

Re: Fill Em Up questions

On my machine it would need 44 balls to fill all columns and plus one more to trigger a win. I also wondered why there were only 40 balls. Maybe they are stuck in there somewhere, or just were removed at some point, or just never there to start with. Like you say, would be quite unusual to have all ...

Re: Fill Em Up questions

Ah sorry, didn't realize you were so far away! Yes the backflash is good on mine but then I paid good money for it (680 GBP). Can you not get a repro backflash done maybe?

Re: Fill Em Up questions

Hi, Not sure if it helps but I have just restored my "Fill Em Up" and there were 40 balls in there. Also had the same problem with payouts, but just needed cleaning and adjustment. Great machines and engaging to play! Liking the little base ball in your picture by the way. Would you sell/swap it may...

Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

He's now saying its not that rare after all! The token part has been removed; yes - no coin box, and didn't comment on the wrong handle, or so-called rare UK coinage. Asked him to test lining all the 7's up manually and see if it throws the jackpot.

Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

Thanks for the info. Seller thinks it's rare as it's got the 777 100 coin payout, UK coinage (which the majority seem to have anyway). Said he could put on a pallet for delivery too!! SHREEK. Have asked how the 100 coins payout works and if he has tested it; let you know.

Re: Mills Hi Top - Ebay

Yes, my offer would be around that mark. Could I ask for more info on token vendor and discs?
