Re: Vending machine advice

Ha ha. Yes that sounds familiar. No ‘danger the contents may be hot’. Just grab it with as little skin contact as possible before spilling it down yourself getting away from the machine through the crowds. The machine I remember had a vertical row of buttons on the right hand side with the various s...

Re: Vending machine advice

No problem. Your machine brings back memories of the trip to the swimming baths to me too. Don’t think it was the same machine but the memories still came flooding back.

Yes the idea of kids putting their sixpence in the wrong slot when buying their chocolate probably needed to be sorted....!

Vending machine advice

Those who have seen me on here before will know I’ve restored a few allwins and pinballs. I’ve never had a vending machine before but am now expecting delivery of one in a few days. I know nothing about them in general but thought it might be fun to work on during lockdown. I’m guessing this is '50s...

Home made xylophone

A couple of months back I picked up a rather sad Bally Hi Deal pinball. Steppers rusted solid, playfield screws rusted into the wood etc. So having been busy stripping and cleaning I managed to get it all working.

Re: Duomat restorations

Great collection. Out of interest how do you change it from limited to unlimited clock operation? I have one I sorted a few months back. Sometimes the clock mech is a bit sticky and doesn't start ticking without help though. I avoided stripping this part last time as I thought it was OK but think I ...
