Re: Bryan’s Pilwin convert & replace backflash

Does anyone know why the stripes on later Bryans backflash travels in the opposite diagonal to most of the earlier machines? I was told that Jim Bryan make a cockup when ordering, but I'm not convinced of this. !PUZZLED!

Re: Allwin information needed

That picture of your game is very nice. Not mine yankee (although I would like to own it), this sold at auction around 8 to 9 years ago Another thing I notice is the black paint....? Yes, I have seen this black/dark edging on allwins before, although I am not sure if this would have been original.

Re: Bob Klepner

Completely reiterate what moonriver has posted, a very sad loss to the world of slots. It makes one wonder, as we all get older and eventually depart, will there be such people in years to come with the knowledge to take this interesting hobby on into the future? I do hope the Mutoscope book is pub...

Re: Allwin information needed

Here is another British Manufacturing Co machine the same as yours yankee on the British halfpenny, made in the 1930s in London. BMco was headed up by Charles Featherstone and the firm made a huge variety of allwins throughout the 30s but WW2 put an end to production.

Re: Bryan’s Pilwin convert back to old penny

Hi pauljt71, these are always difficult to source and it is extremely rare to see them on any bidding site or auction, best short-term bet would be to have one made up by a local metalworker, may even be able to modify your existing coin hopper

Re: Bryans allwin anti tilt device

I'm not sure that tilting a Ten Cup would offer any advantage I would agree and believe that the actual advantage was to enhance sales appeal over competitors, as I believe his variable pressure unit was as well. His VPU would not in reality eliminate the likelihood of a predictable repeat ball tra...

Re: Repro Exhibit Supply Tiger's Tail identified

Gameswat, your knowledge never ceases to amaze !WORSHIPFULL!

The chap who owned this often made trips to the States so the repro scenario (and condition of the machine) would make sense.

Repro Exhibit Supply Tiger's Tail identified

A machine that I saw a while ago, Tigers Tail: put your foot on the metal plate, pull the rope hard and with any luck a roar will be heard. (Another machine was by its side hence cut-off portion of lower left hand side) Stands about 5ft high.

Anyone know the make, I was told Ahrens?
