Hi, I didn't have a clue as to how you achieved the fleck effect, so thank you for letting me know. I will get some paint and give it a go. As you say, it will be best to practice first. If I can get it to look anything like yours I would be more than happy.

Re: R&W Many Happy Returns Allwin

Andy,

Thank you very much that's fantastic. I can't believe how quick that was! Would I be correct in thinking that this machine is from the early to mid fifties?

R&W Many Happy Returns Allwin

Hello from sunny Herne Bay in Kent, I have recently stumbled across a R&W Many Happy Returns allwin. It's all very original, untouched condition so does require some restoration work. It is complete, including the original key and does still work and pays out. The cabinet is really nice with just a ...
