Re: Goldfinger Big Jack

Hello and welcome, I am not much use here as it looks like a Bally variant. I know of the Bally 831, not 838 and I sold most of my guides, but have one service manual and will check. Interesting the concept of Amusement only slot machine like this, as this would be associated with gambling. I rememb...

Re: Haunted house automaton

Nice one Moonriver, bet that was not cheap shipping back here and in the queue of projects. At least it will hopefully live for another era of followers....

Do you operate your machines anywhere, as I definitely will be planning my road trip of arcade visits this year?

Re: Haunted house automaton

Would be great to see when eventually done. Such a quirky item that I doubt the maker would believe it would still have survived to today. !!THUMBSX2!!

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

Noooooooooooo :shock:

Sometimes mine goes into junk, but only had one email today about the fairground sale and the last viewing on Sunday... Well, as we all know, if this is true, there are no winners as people cannot duplicate themselves, both sellers and buyers.

Re: Coventry Spring Auction 22nd March 2020

I was about to say “FFS”... dirtdog

But then wondered where you got this from, as the email from Elephant today never mentioned it and not on their website. We got an email from Jerry today confirming details about Coventry. !PUZZLED!

Does not matter how long you have been doing it......

Been working on a basic Aristocrat bandit, trying sort machines out that have been in the queue for a while and starting working on a broken machine from a fellow collector with a broken reel bundle and missing parts. Anyway, swapped over plastic reel tins from another machine keeping the same pay d...

Re: Tin Pan Alley

I had not considered the theme to be honest and loved the colours and top marque style. I guess all part of history which I am not a believer of eradicating unnecessarily, although of course probably would not be wise to operate. Also Tin Pan Alley is associated with the US music scene as well and t...

Tin Pan Alley pusher

Thought I would add this, the Cromptons Tin Pan Alley that sold on eBay for £215 last week. Was very tempted as unusual for a single player machine like this, but just yet more work. Looks very 1960s in style, but guess 1970s as on new penny and assume would not have been converted. Looks quite smar...

Re: Electroplating (chrome, nickel etc.)

On one of the Facebook groups I noticed this new process being put forward as a Chrome replacement “FutureChromes”. Claims not to be paint, but some kind of applied silver application with various protective coats to give the deep colour and reflective effect. Someone appears to be trying it on a ba...
