Re: GM Laboratories soccer game.

Yes it looks to be the same machine, and it is in Hampshire. I like it and I'm sure I could do all the restoration myself. But the price is a bit over the top. £695 the seller wants for it. Following your link to the previous post about the machine it seems the seller paid £ 500 for it. That's a nic...

Mottos written in the reel strips.

Ive just picked up a Mills/Firman machine and on the reel strips it has a motto written on the fruits.

Re: Ice Hockey table players' sticks cut down?

The metal is not bronze, I tested it with a magnet, and the magnet stuck to the player. So it's either cast iron, or cast steel.

Re: Ice Hockey table players' sticks cut down?

Re: Ice Hockey table players' sticks cut down?

Thanks for that BP, but they are way too heavy to be aluminium. I have had one of the men off of the table to see what they are made of. Would your idea work if the metal is steel?

Ice Hockey table players' sticks cut down?

I bought a Rock-Ola Ice Hockey table a while ago, and I've only just got round to having a good look at it. The players had a short piece of rubber hosepipe on the end of their sticks. 2020-09-25-047a.jpg After taking off the hose I found the players sticks had been very crudely cut down. 2020-09-25...
