I suppose you have to run around a lot to keep warm in Canada. Hence their sporting prowess. :lol:

Micro Crystalline Wax Polish

I have been using this wax polish made by Picreator Renaissance Ltd (a UK company) and I am mightily impressed by it. It claims to be used by many museums to protect antique furniture and metal parts as well. It gives a nice hard finish which doesn't finger-mark easily. It's a bit pricey but the com...

Re: Caille / Clement & Whales Countertop disc graphic

Is there no end to your talent? I have fiddled with graphics software for years but doubt I could match this quality.

Re: Small turned metal parts

Geordy I have replied to your pm - sorry for the delay. Yes that looks great. Twenty years ago I would price a job like this with some certainty but I live in the past and I don't want to undervalue you. I would be happier if you pm'd me a price you are happy with. BTW the commercial firm wanted £90...

Re: Small turned metal parts

Put some drawings on here and people will then know what skills they need. Geordy, I have attached a drawing so you can see it is fairly straightforward machining and not high tolerance work. Hope someone steps up because I contacted a commercial company and they wanted shed loads of money to do it.

Re: Small turned metal parts

I can supply drawings - no problem. Anyone who has a lathe could do them so perhaps I should buy one. That would certainly add to the cost.

I had a contact (a retired model maker) but sadly he is now too ill to continue. I'll try searching the model maker hobbyist forums.

Small turned metal parts

Is there anyone out there who can make small replacement parts for arcade machines? I'm looking for someone with a lathe and a modicum of experience to make some parts for some of my arcade machines. The companies online are into CNC and everything costs a fortune as they want to make a thousand. So...

Re: Wall mounting slot machines

My preferred method is to screw a batten on the wall so the case can rest on it, thus taking most of the weight. Then it just needs a couple of screws through the rear panel to hold it in place. I would recommend stainless steel screws, as they are much stranger that steel, and to get some good qual...

Re: Sega Silver Victory

There is a chrome effect powder coat. I haven't used it but it might be worth discussing it with your powder coating guys. I guess it would be much cheaper than real chroming. I've put a link to it below.
