Re: Sega Silver Victory?

Get some switch cleaner in readiness for the micro switches. I think from memory, there are two: one on the right side of mech that allows the anvil to engage so you can pull handle and spin reels, and one on the left for end of play. These switches work in unison; they also light up the insert coin...

Re: Aristocrat Jackpot Conversion

Well I learned something there. I've got a basket case Arcadian in storage that I still haven't gotten around to restoring. I never knew these had that type of jackpot tube.

Re: Sega Silver Victory?

I owned one of these, the Victory without the header box. It's a Sega Windsor and I paid 75 quid for it in a lot better condition than that. The thing I didn't like about it was it actually didn't depict the HMS Victory, but more of a Mary Rose, a tudor ship from the 1500s heading up the Thames wher...

Re: Revamped Beromat-type bandits

It's unlikely to, unless I shimmy my way under a bus and Sally decides to dispose of all my crap. I bought it shortly after the Brighton J'box fair. It had gone through a couple or two owners in rapid succession before I got it. It had major issues with the mech and refused to allow coins anywhere ...

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian - Manufactured Plate

Well thank you for your picture. This blows a hole in my theory that it could have been a date. From the four digit number on your manufactured field, maybe this indicates the actual amount of that specific machine manufactured, so in my case it was number 665. But maybe somebody else can chip in wi...

Re: Revamped Beromat-type bandits

But, i did see one at a juke box fair, god knows how long back, how long have i been on this forum? and it was green and yellow. I seem to remember talki...

Re: Revamped Beromat-type bandits

i picked one of these up for 140 quid at a juke box fair in brighton once. Mine was in perfect working order, complete and was immaculate. If they look like that on the outside you can imagine what that pot metal will be like inside. I like them as they are a very compact size.

Aristocrat date from serial number?

Can anybody enlighten me as to what the manufactured date means on my Aristocrat Manufacturer Plate. It says 'Manufactured 665' now what does this mean. It was made in June 1965? It was made in May 1966? It was amount of the machine made, or made on a specific day? 665 was a manufacturing location? ...

Re: Roma Flotilla

Fabulous. I got mine out the other day from loft eave, the yellow one. The inner coin slide fell out when I opened it up as the rubber band holding the two halves together had perished. I think it was you who came to my house to examine mine. I seem to think we ended up using a rubber band on yours ...

Re: Anyone had tokens made for machines?

Wasn't it the case that some operators issued tokens from behind the bar and asked the player what value they wanted to play at then trade back winnings at the value staked? So play at 1d, 6d a shilling?!?!
