Re: LocWil Paper Hand Towels Vending Machine

Well it's not going to happen. I was away from home and had to rely on bidding using my phone. eBay loaded ok, I was standing there with a 4g signal, three bars of signal strength, my bid was in and ready to be confirmed. At 10 seconds, pressed confirm bid, then a really really really helpful respon...

Re: LocWil Paper Hand Towels Vending Machine

Fascinating. Thanks for sharing the Tipton Society pages; I suspect that those machines featured pre-date mine. Interesting prices of both the machines and the contents. I'd still like to hear from any other forum members who have one of my style of machine or has any information about the packaging...

I'm guessing from the style of writing on the front that it could be sometime in the 1950s or 60s. I can't find anythi...

Re: LED bulbs instead of incandescent on Bally 742a

Hi coppinpr
Thanks for your reply; these are ones I have seen in the USA; https://cointaker.com/products/63-super-5 which would avoid the rewiring situation; hoping that someone may have seen similar here in the UK; Google and eBay searches have drawn a blank - unless I'm using the wrong keywords.

LED bulbs instead of incandescent on Bally 742a

Hello First post here, I've already picked up a few tips whilst reading as a guest and have taken the plunge to register. I recently bought my first slot machine/one arm bandit - a mid 1960s Bally 742A "Money Honey". It works fine, and I have started to smarten it up. The incandescent bulbs, accordi...
