Re: Aristocrat Starlite queries

Since posing the question about the mechanism I decided that rather than relying on others I should jolly well learn about it myself! After downloading the later Model Aristocrat service manual and staring into the mechanism of mine for hours I've got a fairly clear picture of which bit does what an...

Missing stop bolt? Aristocrat Starlite

Topic moved & merged- Site Admin. Examining the mechanism for my Starlite I've noticed a large sprung stop on the outside. (It's on the the left side of the mechanism as you look at it from the front). Presumably this is to stop an over-movement of the lever that's pulled by the large horizonta...

Starlite sixpenny advice, a thank-you

Topic merged - Site Admin. Prompted by my enquiries about the incorrect pay-out amounts from my Aristocrat Starlite, those with more knowledge than me suggested that it had might have been 'converted' to new pennies with just the application of a 1p denominator badge to replace the old 6d one. Havi...

Magazine feature

As a journalist and an excited new owner of an Aristocrat Starlite I feel compelled to write about it. My colleagues at Old Glory magazine have said "yes please" so off I go. Getting 'as found' pictures is no problem... mine fulfils that quite nicely. Post restoration pictures are more of ...

Re: Aristocrat Starlite queries

There was apparently a 1p denominator (is that the correct term?) attached to it at one time (he handed this over with the machine).

But still pre-decimal... Yesss!!! To my mind far preferable!

Re: Aristocrat Starlite queries

A stand... In the words of Frankie Howerd ..... Ooooh stoppit! It'll have to put up with the workshop bench Strong consideration of getting it on tanners though, maybe try and grub up 20 so I can give it a try for a full pay-out. Questions... 1.
