Re: Help with my latest project

Hi, I'm sure the fingers would be something like,
1st. Single or double cherry
2nd. Cherries with the 3rd reel bar
3rd. Oranges and plums
4th. Bells and cumbers
5th. Bars / Jackpot payout

Sometimes you can get 4 reel strips, so easier for the 3rd strip to be correct dependant on the model.

Re: Bryan's Payramid... What a shame!

Crude but it works!. Made the outer casing and 'jackpot guide' as well. Just got to put it together now!

Re: Bryan's Payramid... What a shame!

Superb!... Thanks for the pics. The patent is good but the pics certainly clear up a couple of niggles. I have some bits that will be useful but could do with some form of base or slide to get up and running. Have contacted a few people but the only promising one was a chap who apparently had sold a...

Re: What's the best paint to use please?

Great looking machine Widget....nice job. I agree that yours was a close call. I think if more turned up like yours originally was, it may be an easier decision to leave alone. I tend to target machines that leave me no choice. Usually reflected in the price too...

Re: Bryan's Payramid... What a shame!

It arrived yesterday!! I am very pleased with the machine so far. It works very well, only needing a few minor adjustments. If anyone has one of these, I would appreciate a couple of close-ups of the payout situation. My jackpot is complete but would also like to see how it is 'fed' presumably from ...

Re: Bryan's Payramid... What a shame!

A deal was done on the payramid and should arrive next week!. So I may as well continue the thread early by asking if anyone has any spare 'payout' bits for this that they will sell? (I have also placed in the 'Market'). Picture below show one complete as oppose to the one above.

Re: Bryan's Payramid..What a shame!

Hi guys, I've looked at the patent and think I understand the principle. Pictures on Mr. Wrights site show the 'casing' around the tube and slide, so I've probably concluded that it's more complicated than it really is! The easy question to ask is whether other Bryan's machines use a similar payout ...

Bryans 1930s Payramid jackpot

Hi Everyone, After a great day at the Coundon auction, I'm still on my quest for a few pre war machines! I've so far only managed to buy a clown catcher and have posted a request for a replacement base but unfortunately haven't had any response yet!. Thanks for the heads up on restoration by the way...
