Re: Steer a Ball - only not the usual!

I have had one of these so it's not unique. It's very well made, so I presume they intended to make a few of them. I think I put it in one of Steve's auctions. Don't know who made it though.

Re: Hitler Skee Penny

I seem to remember a similar one at one of Steve Hunt's auctions. Perhaps somebody might have taken a pic of it.

Re: CAST IRON FRONT MYSTERY MACHINE

I have always assumed these are British, they certainly look it. They are not that rare - I have owned two in the past and I know where there are two more.

Re: Australian Auction

The payout casting looks like a bit of Bryans.

Re: Caille Ben-Hur

Neither of these is made by Caille, they are English produced, probably by Clements in the 20/30s.

Bell-Fruit Manufacturing Co. bandits

Does anybody out there know what the purpose of these were. The badge is the same as the one fitted to a 1960s Bell Fruit with a Churchill crown in a fitted case. Could they be a prize?

Hi Jerry, I have had one before. These are revamps on earlier Mills machines. If you look at the pictures, the mech is too early, probably out of a Poinsettia. Another clue is the wooden sides, they have been built up to accept new castings. Could have been done by Bollands or Firmans maybe.

Hi, I see everyone is avoiding this difficult question. I will stupidly try, it depends on a lot of factors - what's the condition like, is it restored, is it restored well, sympathetically, are all the parts original, is everything there, what coin is it on, have the payouts been altered, are the s...

Supermatic 5 reeler bandit! most unusual bandit ever?

This has to be the weirdest, most unusual bandit made. According to the splendid book Arcades and Slot Machines , this was made in 1934 by Brenner. Has anyone seen one work and can you describe the action? I am trying to get this one to function - and does anyone know any history of Supermatic? This...
