Re: BMR bandit - cleaning and parts questions

Re: Mills Hi-top

I dont think Mills ever made a front opening bandit unless you mean the compact series with the front opening cash draw but these were made by TJM so not really Mills, the case for the compact was mostly Jennings anyway (TJM owned Jennings as well as Mills by this time) Also the hi-top was made by S...

Re: Sorry -- Not For Sale -- Holy Water Vendor

On the subject of religious vending machines, this communion wafer vendor has to be my favourite. If it is indeed a wafer vendor - I've always suspected it's a condom vendor pretending to be something else. :lol: You have to love the slogan though.
