Re: Fun at the Fair Nostalgic Machines restoration

I acquired a Nostalgic Machines 'Hole In One' and the backflash is -predictably- sun damaged/discoloured and warped.. So I wonder if anybody knows of a template for it.. ..Or could I replace it with a similar backflash? Its a mk 1 machine.. I know this machine isn't exactly an enthusiast's choice, b...

Re: Hello from sunny West Sussex UK

Wow. And you worked on 'Tommy'? Great movie (my experience of seeing in particularly enhanced his mum!) but I can't watch it now cos of different feelings when seeing those pinball machines being smashed up! V best from dismal Oxfordshire.. Martyn

Win-a-lot; superb & thanks for the video. Love the Christmasy lights..


'Win-a-little' might have been a better name though!

Re: My half penny play Payramid

Well, progress with my 1/2d Payramid; great news; as pennymachines suggested, the original 1/2d WAS behind some plastic padding (pooh!) filler on the top casing, so I am somewhat chuffed.. Thanks Guv'..

Best to all from sunny Oxfordshire..

Re: My half penny play Payramid

I'm really pleased to be the custodian of my halfpenny mk1 type Payramid, and I must admit I paid a lot (+100s) more than £1,500; but I would love to compare it to others 'in the flesh' as it were. Is the collection at the Drayton Manor 'family park' worth a peep? Oh - I hope to be able to attend th...
