Running Hare

Hello Here is my second of only two amusement machines. If the original pic comes out you can see parts of the case was very rotten, it became a long job. Then it needed a new main cog cut as the hare skipped past the gun where teeth were missing. I did wonder if that was intentional to reduce the p...

Re: Hello from Barry Island

Hello What a nice reception from members. I will post the running hare in the discoveries section. I am in Penarth most days and sometimes fish off the pier, transporting myself back to the 1950's when it was compulsory for all boys to fish off piers. Penarth pier is a magnet to people. It really co...

Hello from Barry Island

Hello As I now write this I can see Barry Island a few miles away (a place of so much fun for me). I have a lifelong interest in jukeboxes and anything coin operated so this site is a great find for me. In the 60s and early 70s I remember the huge arcade under the water chute in Porthcawl where I li...

Re: Clown Catcher, info please

Hi
Yes I see your point.
It's also that the BB gets quite a wack from the timber peg to send it up.
I see the peg is mushrooming at the top, perhaps a steel BB was not the original material or I will try rubber top on the peg which will be a bit kinder?
Thanks

Re: Clown Catcher, info please

Hello and thank you both.
I looked through the forum but could not find one like mine.
I see the similarities on the two you have posted.
The case is stamped 192 on the side. I attach a pic of the mech in case anybody can perhaps identify.
Any alternative to the heavy ball bearing?
Thanks
