Re: Mills 4 reels Bel o Matic

The thing on the wood on the left side next to the Mills decal seems to me some kind of stamp in black and numbers in red starting with 19. Maybe you guys could figure out what that could be? I don't think it has been standing in water. It is more prominent in the photo than in reality. I think mayb...

Re: Mills 4 reels Bel o Matic

In the machine there is no electricity, but it looks like the two circled windows ("25 cent" and "Bel o matic") should be lit up ??

Re: Mills 4 reels Bel o Matic

Thanks for the compliments guys :D I know that the right thing to do would be to preserve the chrome, but you have to dig deep in your pocket to rechrome as you all know. As I wrote, the chrome is pretty bad. Does someone know if a machine like this was originally painted in some color too? It has t...

Re: Mills 4 reels Bel o Matic

It is chrome plated. Last night I put some wax on it, just to see if the chrome could look a little better. Unfortunately the chrome is in a quite bad shape (the picture in the front lies a bit).

Re: Old electrics in machines

I don't know if it is a problem, but I just couldn't figure out what effect on the bulbs chose. Already ordered on ebay (1 watt). That shouldn't hurt the plastic and will hopefully light up the machine in a nice way. I am a little sceptical about LED in these old machines. I think this modern LED-th...

Re: Old electrics in machines

Yes, I think I follow your advice Raj. Safety has to come first,
