That looks great. I have exactly the same Rialto model in full working condition. Got mine from the late Harold English. They work great on the new 20p coin and make a very nice money box.
Mine seems to use Canadian nickels ok.
Can you post a photo(s) of your money box? Mine is missing one.

Re: now this is a collection

WOW!

In that 2nd room, what are the first two machines on the left? They look like large ornate penny-drops

Re: Bingolett

My Rialto is all fixed and working great! You can find my friend's repair thread here: https://www.maaca.org/viewtopic.php?t=25552 There is shrink tube over one of the switches to prevent the timer auto-plunging the ball. North America is 60 Hz to 50 over there, so things run a little bit faster and...

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

I've had a few machines turn up with obviously replaced non grooved tracks and they played like dogs so had to be converted back with spare grooved tracks. The one I did leave was a BMCO that seemed original to me, pretty sure it was a wartime built version. Did take a while to tune that to roll ri...

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

but I have had an occasion where even fitting as thick as glass into slot there was too big a glass. Other thing your ball track, is it a replacement, maybe using some kind of aluminium channelled strip, as it looks like it has lips on the sides. If this is the wrong width it may also affect play. ...

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

The game came with a few old Australian pennies, from 1905-1942 or so. Is there a recommended guide for coin sizes I should reference? These ones work great, but I definitely need more compatible coins. Wikipedia tells me the Australian pennies of 1911-1965 had the same composition and dimensions a...

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

I picked up that Ballwin from eBay. Except for the payout slot being slightly different it's very very close to the first machine posted in this forum Bad news is that FedEx smashed in the front of the frame and busted part of the frame and broke the hinges. That sucks, but fixable in the end. Good ...

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).

Re: Bolland's Automatic Amusement Machines catalogue

Thanks so much for sharing these historical documents.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