Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

Wedding entertainment has always been part of my living. I know it sounds hard to believe that the start of matrimonial bless can include booking a Punch and Judy show but people do book one 😂 More recently (pre COVID) there has been a resurgence of retro, vintage and themed wedding packages.

I used these about 3 years ago for hubcap rechroming. They said 3 months, then lost them, then found them, before doubling original quote. Got them back after 6 months and within a further 6 months they started to rust 😢

Re-chromed shiny bits

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Finally bit the bullet and sent a couple of bits to the Platers. Very pleased with the results, nickel then chrome plated.

Received back today and fitted to the Mills and Payramid, just got the red paint to drop on now 😀

Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

The May fair event went well although we did get washed out on the Monday! The machines were very popular. It was great to see the children trying to play the machines, working out where the money went and asking what to do next! Many of the parents have never even seen a one armed bandit. The match...

1935 Payramid payout card needed

Hi folks,

I am looking for someone with an early Payramid that could kindly scan me their payout card please. Mine is damaged and incomplete. The ones on the Resource page are for the later 1960s machines, so have a different boarder and typeface.

Any help greatly appreciated. 😀
