Re: Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

I don't have any diagrams for these machines, but, unlike the earlier 'uniselector' types, you don't need a diagram unless the original wiring has been tampered with. The wiring on these is to a very high standard, and I'm convinced that either Arthur Jamieson or Mr. Binns had GPO experience. It wo...

Re: Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

The variator motor turns at 5rpm. This is the left-hand motor in the inside photograph, the one between the odds adjuster and the main sequence controller. The speed of this variator will have no effect on the speed of the game. The right-hand motor controls the game length. It runs at 6rpm, and so...

Re: Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

I think a 6 rpm would be too slow?? "Crouz...

Re: Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

I am aware of alternative versions of these, and I also have 'Starlet', which I imagine is an earlier type, not having the variator fitted. I'll have a look at the variator motor on my 'Lucky Throw' when I get home tonight, and post the final RPM for you. There are two different cam profiles, one w...

Jamieson’s Autofruit range 1962 - 64

These show some of the Jamieson machines in the “Autofruit” range Circa Sept 62 - Oct 64 in different guises. As some of you know, I have a “Luck Throw” version that I’...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Wow - that looks a bit of a mess - someone has bid on it now so must fancy a challenge resoring it - not sure it’s one for me - is this the typical resto condition/price as not come across one before?

Thanks for the link.

Re: Jamiesons Automatics Maxi dropcase machine in Norway

I've spoken to my dad - that's him in the photo wearing red jacket and cool beard - and I can confirm that unfortunately there are no manuals etc in the Jamieson family vaults!!
