Re: Bally Money Tree

Are you sure the mech is sitting correctly in the case? I don't remember any adjustments on these, so perhaps the mech is sat on top of the base, rather than slid into the grooved slot, or the locking handles have not fully engaged to pull the mech tight into the case, or something behind the mech i...

Re: Several allwins on ebay

The upper of the two 5 Wins has parts missing (coin entry and ball release, for starters) and the lower one has had a new base and an ugly 1D sign stuck over the token entry slot. The owner claimed it was 'totally original' but never replied when I queried his description.

Re: Aristocrat Arcadian 65

I fully agree with the previous posts...a very expensive option for such a basic bandit. I've done loads of these, turned from rusty piles of crap to shiny boys toys in a couple of days max. They are so easy to work on, and parts easy to find. Can't be bothered any more, not a challenge for me.

Re: Jennings plastic inserts

I'd support the polishing over the plating option. Some of these early castings were done using aircraft alloy, rather than the usual 'pot' ali, which makes DIY polishing much harder, ( which is why there was a sudden upsurge in orders to Germany from the factories, just before WW2). Leave it to the...

Re: Treff Tempo on ebay today

Just seen a Youtube video about using superglue and bi-carb of soda to repair similar damaged parts. It sets as hard as glass and if you use the thin glue, it should fill all the holes and cracks... just a thought.

Re: Bryans Clock machine

all the artwork for this is available in 'Resources' on a tab in this forum, print onto decent weight semi gloss paper and it should do just right. The clock hands were available from Hobbies, last time I bought one, or other clock related retailers. The mechs are made from WW2 tank parts, so are bo...

Re: Revamped Beromat-type Bandits

note to the unwary, the Gambling Plods do read these posts, and do not have a sense of humour, trust me.
