Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

We had one of these Gold Cup machines in our local snooker hall in the mid to late 60s and we loved it. The "modern" electronic reels seemed sharp and smooth, seeming to tumble along and, of course, they showed up well in the semi-dark snooker hall. :lol: (Punters wouldn't settle for such a small pl...

Re: Adjust reel brakes

I think Tom is right, also it all seems very stiff. Los of oxidised grease on what we can see, so cleaning everything and (lightly) oiling will definitely help. If you pull the reel stops back one at a time are they nice and free with the springs pulling them firmly against the timing bar? Bending t...
