Re: Vintage Pay Rise fruit machine

Rare machine, they didn't let many escape. There may be some appearing for sale on the internet sites soon, as when I went to look in this cellar there were another four or five there. The one I bought seemed to be the best as the back door was locked shut, and also came with the schematics, and an...

Re: Vintage Pay Rise fruit machine

Many thanks all. After looking up Bulgin connectors, it appears that the old Marshall amps used to use them, so it appears that I may be taking up the electric guitar soon!! any requests?

Re: Vintage Pay Rise fruit machine

What is odd is that, assuming the pins are earth, N and L, normally the earth pin is different in shape or size, so you don’t accidentally connect incorrectly causing injury or damage. They all look the same. Just noticed that the top pin is longer than the other two. In picture two, of the electri...

Peter Simper Pay Rise fruit machine

I recently got hold of a vintage fruit machine (early seventies) rescued from a cellar in Accrington. A builder who had bought the building was selling everything in there to clear it out, so nothing known about the machine. It didn't come with a power supply lead. It is a three pin circular fitting...

Re: Oh Boy Gum vending machine

A shred of info regarding Goudey Gum & The Bristish Chewing Sweets connection. In April 1927 Harry Lauder a great chewing gum fan (the Prince Of Wales at the time was also a fan) was on a tour of America and Canada with a Major Hugh A Green. During this short time they purchased a $10,000 inter...

Re: Wrigleys PK vintage vending machine

You probably wouldn't notice it if it was high enough on the wall, and depending on your height :D but I like to try and put faults right if it is possible, after all we are caretakers for these machines.

Re: Wrigleys pk vintage vending machine

I think it will straighten out ok as well treefrog, I could get hold of the correct hammers and striking back plates and do a half decent job on it, it's just the sides which concern me, so better to take to a specialist on this occasion.

Wrigleys PK vintage vending machine

A couple of weeks ago I was the highest bidder on this vintage Wrigleys PK vending machine through Amersham Auction Rooms. Well what a dissapointment it was. This was the first time I had bought from an auction house. On receiving the machine, I find the top of the machine had been forced back as so...

Re: Wrigleys pk gum vending machine

The camera that I am using isn't taking the sharpest of pictures at the moment, so I think that is the best image that I can get. Are you looking to get the image made for your machine? I have seen some adverts for OK gum that show a clearer image. I wouldn't say the print of the gum picture on my m...
