Re: Repairing diecast, aluminium, pot metal and cast iron

Digging up old topic, I was interested whether anyone had attempted to have a go on a precious part other than Gameswat great resto of that figure.

Re: OK, let's talk RARE one arm bandits....

Funny old topic this one, as there are probably hundreds of machines that could be called rare, but I have always had an appeal to quirky and rare and especially associated with machines used in the U.K. (erm and Australia ;-) ) I was digging through some old pictures I captured of sold machines I u...
