Re: Bradley/Whales: Ballwin, Baby Bradwin, Allwin De Luxe etc.

Ok, so I bought it. Finally adding my first UK machine to the collection!
What size of ball do these machines use?

Re: Bolland's Automatic Amusement Machines catalogue

anyone have a Circle Skill? Game looks absolutely brutal to play. No wonder you can wick a pack of cigarettes, it's like a pachinko machine set to maximum difficulty.
(I see on another page there is also a version with an extra win cup, and that dispenses coins instead of packs)

thanks so much for sharing these historical documents. I'd like to print some pages out for our pin history booth.

Re: Should I buy this?

Not original ball track you think? Seems to let the winning ball in, effect the payout mech somehow, and then returns the ball to the play area, no?

Very different than this internal shot from the Ballwin thread you posted.

Thanks for looking for me.

Should I buy this?

Topic merged - Site Admin.

A machine in North America!
Should I buy this? Don't know anything about this model, if it's just a knock-off, etc.

Re: Peter Wilson Sale: 18/07/19

Re: Bingolett

There were, I think, four models: Bingolette (1959), Bingolux (1960), Tivoli (1961), Rialto (1964) (plus the timed version of the Rialto). The most interesting looking one to me is the Bingolux. Does anyone have any info on the "timed version"? How does the timer work? I haven't found any schematic...
