Re: What is your dream machine?

Well thank you for the compliments! But that one was easy. The first Conveyor I restored was a bitch. Came from John Greshams collection. An operator had added a lower cash door by removing the marquee and raising the door up. They at least stuck a new marquee on top, that appeared to have been made...

Re: Rockola Baseball identified

Hey, I'm guessing that you possibly got these two machines on UK eBay a few weeks ago confused as one '37 Baseball? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200272623343 1934 Rockola baseball. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290287543383&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123...

Re: What is your dream machine?

Just finished the resto tonight on the Conveyor shown earlier in this thread. While ratty, it was basically complete, other than the back steel sheet and coin entry. Marquee glass is the original that I glued and resprayed to restore. Playfield was cleaned with hydrochloric acid to remove the rust s...

conveyor

I bought the rough Conveyor shown above, it actually cost 570.66 pounds and there were 26 bids. By the time I had it in aust it owed me approx $1900 Aud. I recently sold another restored example in aust for $4500 Aud, so I'm happy. A truly classic machine that people are always commenting on and lov...

Re: Bajazzo Clown

The Clown #103 B is the serial of this machine only, so this is an early example of this model Clown. The reason they showed the number under the glass was so that only winning tokens from this actual machine ( the tokens were numbered to match each machine) could be cashed in at that establishment....

Re: "Race Track" e/m payout wiring query

Thank you for all the info Penny Machines!! I'm in Australia so I've never seen any of those machines running before, just photos, I like them all though with the flashing lights. Mine appears to be the only one with hand painted art so I guess it's probably low production. Looks like I'll have to b...

Re: 1927 "Bull's Eye" by Totem payout pistol problem

Hey guys thanks for the replies. Would really like to see another machine that's similar Penny Machines! The pistol does run with the old Pennies and with the target holes opened right up you can get a bullseye often enough to be good fun. Does tend to beat the coins up a tad though! The design of t...

Re: 1927 "Bull's Eye" by Totem payout pistol problem

Hi , thanks for the Crow River link but this is a British machine proudly made in Southhampton. The only relationship to ABT is that Totem copied the front plate and marquee castings of the 1925 ABT Target Skill machines. Everything else is totally unique. Gameswat

Re: AUTO TALKIE

John, I found the mostly complete machine locally in Perth in 2003, the second one from England was just an empty cabinet, but much needed as my case was badly messed up by an idiotic "restorer". So in fact thats three machines produced at least.

Haven't you finished that thing yet?!?! gameswat
