Re: 50 years today

Can vaguely remember emptying old pennies out out my piggy bank, for my mum to change at the post office!
My Question is, what prompted this change of coinage, we didn't enter the common market until 1973?

Re: Vending machine advice

So I thought you might be interested in the end product. First time I’ve tried using water slide decals. Scanned/made up some artwork and inkjet printed them. A bit fiddly to get on. I damaged one but adds to the slightly vintage look I guess. Tricky to get stuff to fit the machine. But ended up wi...

Re: Clacton-on-Sea - The Pier Bally Machines

Hi I had some dealings with the Harrisons in the early noughties. Mainly with Ted Harrison Sr.(RIP) One of the last vintage machines still in operation then was a very worn out Streamline Novelty Merchantman. I can remember the whole case was coming apart, but all the castings were there apart from ...

Re: Why are some bandits so complicated?

I agree Paul, that's what I love about Bandits, so well............. OK , Over engineered. I do agree, he use too much oil, other than that, cant fault him. I think the sound track to this is amazing, not ruined by some "elevator music" sound track and complete lack of speech adds to the m...

Re: Barn fresh Bryans Hidden Treasure

thank you pennymachines and tallstory. Dissembled the pump and soaked the washer in hot water and then applied some buttercream and works a treat.

Barn fresh Bryans Hidden Treasure

OK, so this just made it into my workshop today. Because of this Covid crisis, I thought I would try and restore something a bit different. I know nothing about Bryans machines as I have only restored Bandits in the past, so a few questions. 1. How do you get the mech out of the case? 2. It cycles b...

Re: Xmas 2020 a year to be forgotten

Best wishes to Tom and others on here.! Yes 2020, worse year for buisness ever. I have both parents alive but as in 80s, we dare not risk having them round for Xmas dinner.
