Re: Tin Pan Alley

Unfortunately one of those themes that I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable with sitting in my home. I guess one could have had a go at changing the back image.

Re: Kraft Darts

It's simply an upright bagatelle board, is it not?

Re: Stamp vending machine that doesn't vend stamps?

Well so far I've found the exact colour match on an old payphone. Maybe something like this could have been bolted to the side?!?!

Re: Stamp vending machine that doesn't vend stamps?

It's a rather nice thing. My 1d old play bandit and 6d bandit sit next to each other and this would be rather nice for change to swap between the two; surely a nice addition to a collection.

Re: Bally/Greaves Firebell bandit

It looks very professionally done; you might get yourself a job with Libertygames as they do this type of revamp. I have an old Aristocrat Arcadian mk1 awaiting a bit of welding on a broken part. The reel strips are worn out, it all looks rather tired and not really going to realize value I put into...

Re: Bally Gold Award

Well done mate, brilliant. That actually appears to be an old 6d coin for three plays machine. The 1 shilling award would pay 2 coins. Does it pay 2 coins or 5? (2 X 6d coin being a shilling). The five coin payout was introduced when they were converted to 1p for 1 play. If its still accepting 6d co...

Re: Bally Gold Award

I didn't sell them, I actually swapped them at an amusement arcade in West Sussex where Ballys are still in use (but most failing). One of the machines is still active and out of all the Gold Award machines they were running, it's the last one standing. When the owner passed away, his son who is sti...

Re: Bally Gold Award

I have owned a couple of Ballys before but they were working machines which I moved on fairly quickly and traded for all mechanical bandits. I know on this forum there are some Bally enthusiasts so be patient and I'm sure somebody will pop by soon and help you; be careful with these when fettling as...

Re: Bally gold award

On accepting a coin, does the handle pull and the reels spin etc? I'm assuming your Gold Award is a 1p or 2p play as many were converted from original 6d play. Just thinking, it might be something as simple as coin differences of the pre-1992 coins being copper and thereafter steel and the slug/magn...

Re: Aristocrat Hold N'Draw wiring

I never knew the mechanical Aristos of this age had a hold and draw feature. Thanks for sharing.
