Re: Not an Auction..

Thanks for the plug Stuart !THUMBS! Magic machines have already been sold, and there are several people coming down to Brighton over the next couple of days. So if you're after machines, get in quick! I've just added a third page of machines on the website, but it isn't just machines for sale - ther...

Re: The Late Maurice Felce

P.S. I see PM is online - perhaps it would be appropriate to make this thread sticky for a while, so that it doesn't get bumped down the list. Just a thought.

Re: The Late Maurice Felce

I heard this sad news at the weekend - I believe Maurice had been unwell for some time. I first met Maurice back in the 90s, when I was producing allwin spares - he was a good customer! He and Pat were always to be seen at shows such as Copthorne and the various auctions back then. He always support...

Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

Thank you all for your comments and well wishes. This is certainly a sad time for me, not because I have had to close and sell my machines, that was always the plan, but it wasn't supposed to happen yet. It was my intention to close at the end of September, and I was very much looking forward to my ...

Re: Nostalgics allwin

Spindle and knob are different metals and I’m unsure if they can be welded The spindle is steel and the knob is cast iron. They can be welded, although probably not a job for an amateur - I don't weld, so can't give any specific advice. However, just be mindful that the heat produced from welding w...

Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

Not heard from Jerry, but he had mentioned on here this year may have been the last... Yes, it was my intention to close at the end of September, as the lease is up for renewal end of next March. However, as it is unlikely that I would be able to open at all this year, I've made the decision to sta...

Re: Gold trim for a Hanno Moulin Rouge

Re: Time to ........

Very nice job BP - Slick is a great machine and definitely worth spending time on restoration. We spoke recently on the dog and wotsit, so the colour scheme comes as no surprise - looks good. I note on the before picture that the instructions appear to be missing (not uncommon with these machines) b...
