Re: Mills or Sega Lucky Horseshoe???

I timed how long, the shortest amount of time was around three seconds, and the longest was around 1 min 27 seconds. I almost emptied the coin tube after two goes on the highest amount of time. I have learnt so much from buying and tinkering with this machine, and I only bought it as I wanted the ba...

Re: Mills or Sega Lucky Horseshoe???

I've cracked it, it lives again. After much messing and tinkering around it finally came to life when I poked a screw driver inside and triggered the bottom micro switch. It really started buzzing after triggering the switch. I jumped so much I almost fell off my chair. I had to bend the bracket so ...

Re: My first restoration project.

I still have the gallery surround, I may try using it as a template and try to make something that wont cover the writing, or maybe even trim a little off of the bottom of it. I will try a few things, and see what looks best. Thanks for you replies guys, every little helps.

Lucky Horseshoe, lights on but no bonus feature working.

Topic merged - Site Admin. I finally got the electrics for my Lucky Horseshoe sort of working, I think. The light comes on now in half of the jackpot window, like it should, and the bottom half is not lit, like it should be. It says on the top flash "when horseshoe is lit in jackpot glass maximum c...

Re: My first restoration project.

Yes I did replace the backflash, it was hand painted. I got my daughter to touch it up on photoshop, so it still looks old. Im pretty pleased with the results.

Re: My first restoration project.

I will replace the payout handle surround, Im just waiting for the chrome screws to arrive. The small diamond trim were just stick on mirror tiles, they were also on the wood surrounding the playfield, I thought they made it look a bit tacky.
Im still not sure about the ball gallery surround.

My first restoration project.

So here is the first of many I hope, my restored Allwin machine. I'm almost finished, just waiting for the lock to come back from the locksmith, and some chrome plated screws. I have left the chromed metal off of the ball gallery for now, and I'm not sure I will put it back. Do you think it looks be...

Re: What can you tell me about this Jokerboul?

It says Courson on the plate, on the side of the machine. Is that not the maker then?
Any other info I can find says it is made by Courson.

What can you tell me about this Jokerboul?

As the title says, what can anyone tell me about this Jokerboul machine? I know it's French, 1936, made by Courson. I can't find much about the maker, except that he only made two machines.
How is it played? How many balls should it have? What is the approximate value?
Thanks guys.

Re: How long before it’s re listed

I was watching that machine, just to see what people would pay for a repro, that didnt work. I was amazed when it went to over a grand, then it went down to £720, then back up to over £1000. Why? Do people really pay that for something that bad?
