Re: Shefras Escalator problems

I think your escalator is actually a late Sega version rather than a Shefras. I had one of these in a Sega Light Up.

Re: Jentzsch and Meerz Corso

Re: History of Joe Fletcher's Birmingham amusement arcade

One of my favourite arcades in the 1980s and '90s and visited Lickey Hills most weekends during the summer months.

I think these escalators can be configured in different ways, but usually the last coin played is visible pushing the previous one down the channel.

Re: Electroplating (chrome, nickel etc.)

I have had a few pieces chrome powder coated and the results can be very good but the surface of the casting / metal needs to be very smooth before powder coating to achieve the best effect from the finish.

Re: What else do you collect?

I know we all collect old slot machines, allwins, etc. I'm sure most of us all collect something else too. Thought it would be interesting to find out what other members collect. For me... it's Neo Geo Aes game cartridges specifically. Neo Geo Aes - I have had a few Aes consoles and lots of carts o...
