Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Re: ford gumball machine

Certainly, no reason not to feature a gumball machine, they are clearly part of the slot machine genre. !THUMBS! I've worked on loads of gumball dispensers but never one of these, it looks rare. The photos don't give much away but from what we can see there should be a plate on top of the rotating g...

It could be three o'clock in the morning when we finished on the day we emptied the machines. The men were given only two ten-minute breaks - one at lunchtime, and another in...
