Re: Imperial allwin auction

Note to Gamewat: did the mazak coin entries have lead cutters? I've only come across them on the wider brass entries. JC, sorry about the lax reply - my mind has been elsewhere. Yes, I've seen quite a few die cast coin entries with the lead cutters. Here they are on a French Roulette I own. Interes...

Re: Returning Gipsy......?

John John John, do you have such little faith in my abilities?! That hurts......I'm not crying I just have antique oak sawdust in my eyes. Exhibit A) Photo of the original machine I borrowed to measure, with the exact same cabinet. Though if you notice that the top and bottom beam thickness is oppos...

Bradley Salectric shocker

Also have this rather ratty shocker door made by Bradley and sold by Shefras. But you just have to love that deco styled door casting! Again no cabinet though I think it's wood as the only other one I've seen was posted on Simon's website quite a few years ago. Tried asking him for help but no reply...

Returning Gipsy......?

Me again - been looking through my garage for allwin parts and saw a couple of projects that have me wondering. First is this Gipsy door without cabinet, though heaven knows if I'll ever get that complicated mech working again! What's got me stumped with this one is the hole in the front. You can se...

Re: never plated Payramid??

The owner is a Pom and bought the machine at a London auction in the very late 70s for around 500 pounds from memory. He also bought something else at the same time. And the machine never paid out until a few days ago............ some people don't deserve to own beautiful objects!

never plated Payramid??

Hey guys, just repaired this one for a customer, had to make the missing the payout tube and a few other adjustments needed. I've never seen one with all factory unplated castings. The machine is original from what I can tell and has never been restored just operated. Guess it was either a special o...

Re: Torpedo Shoot

Ha, small world, that belonged to my family for a long time. We found it in 1989 along with a shitload of other machines, maybe 65 total. And we almost left without it since it looked in such nice cond we though it was much newer than that. But we packed machines so well we had space left for one mo...
