Re: Happy Birthday Pennymachines.co.uk

I hope it manages another 16 years - a veritable treasure trove of information. I know forums seem to have fallen out of favour more recently with the increased use of Facebore and other related trendy sites but I hold out hope that sites like this see a resurgence of use and interest, as they still...

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Very confused! How does Steve get all these entries for his auctions, when he never answers his emails and his phone number on his website does not work. I have been emailing him for 4 weeks, hoping to enter a Bally Fireball pinball machine in his auction. Has somebody got some way of contacting hi...

Check where it's located ……. I've been and a had a look, and it isn't.

Re: Re-introduction and a Bryan's question

That looks good - a different design to mine in terms of the proportion of vertical open chute being shorter on mine with the 'top part' having an extended drop before the join to the vertical. Have not heard from anyone yet regarding my wanted advert (you'd think there'd be parts of Bryan's Allwins...

Re: This ain't no Bryan's...

I'd think "Bryan's" was mentioned because hundreds of collectors will have an ongoing search running for key words. That is a very good point I'd overlooked - I have words including allwin, penny and machine so it would still have appeared but not everyone will. Seeing the photo reminded me that it...

Re: Coventry Auction 25/11/18

Just had confirmation that my request for cover at work that day has been accepted - so all being well I will be attending my first ever auction of this kind. Not going with any specific goal, just to see what it's all about, do a bit of socialising and possibly come back with something nice - might...

Re: Re-introduction and a Bryan's question

Brass was the material I used for the same part on a half-crown change machine. It has the advantage of taking solder readily, which avoids the bolt-heads which sometimes interfere with reliable working of coin-chutes. Thanks - an interesting thought - have never soldered anything before but there'...
