Before all this debate gets out of hand, I really think you should adopt the 'tried and tested' method of conducting an auction: Charge for catalogues, to admit two. £4 seems reasonable. Giving away catalogues free of charge could get expensive, taking into account the cost of producing them, and p...

Count me in! I'm sure I'll find somthing to sell. Good idea holding the auction the week after Jukebox Madness, sure to attract some punters from the show. Not sure about the 10% sellers premium, wouldn't 5% for buyers and sellers make more sense?

Anyway, good luck. I've cast the first vote.

Forcing a payout

With regard to forcing a Jackpot or any other winning line, the term 'Force' is probably not a good choice! What Badpenny means is turn the reels manually, until the chosen symbals line-up in the winning position. To do this, you'll need to obstruct the clock fan with a screwdriver or somthing simmi...

Novamats in the night!

Our American friend might think we're all mad over here, writing about slot machines in the early hours of the morning. On the other hand, he may see how enthusiastic we are about our interest.

Any comments from America?

Novamat

Thanks for finding my post.

I sat up at 2.00 this morning writing it (couldn't sleep in this heat). When it was apparently lost, I was too tired to start again! At least I now know the correct date of first manufacture.

All the best

Great Book!

I received my copy of the new book DRAYTON MANOR on Tuesday. Haven't had time to read it cover to cover yet, but at £7.75 inc. postage seems very good value. About six pages are dedicated to Bryans machines. It can be ordered from: DRAYTON MANOR THEME PARK FREEPOST BM6426 TAMWORTH B78 3TW Make chequ...

Drayton Manor

The article is an extract from the new book DRAYTON MANOR which I ordered over the weekend. The book will no doubt be primarilly devoted to the history of Drayton Manor Park, rather than Bryans machines but should nonetheless be an interesting read. I'll let you know when I receive the book. I'll al...

Cranes for sale

If you mean the two cranes in the MARKET, go back to the market and click on the Kraft Extrawin - it's the same vendor.

Mini soccer - payout?

I presume the machine Simon has is the one sold on ebay recently (with no legs). I was tempted to bid on this, but was discouraged by the lack of these wooden appendages! A similar machine sold at the Wookey Hole sale last November, which I really wish I'd bought now. I remember these machines as a ...
