Re: Aristocrat Arcadian 65 needs repair

Not that I've read the entire thread, but you know the forward tip/base of the real brake that looks similar to an upturned cupped hand, well they can be twisted up or down slightly too. It sorted the issue with one of my machines years ago so may be worth a go?
Cheers,
Goodpenny.

Re: Movie, TV or famous ownership provenance

On the slightly off-topic subject of provenance - and no connection to film, my 1929 nickel Mills Poinsettia was 'discovered secreted behind a false wall in a small out building being demolished in Nevada'. Said out building was supposedly a hidden gambling den run by a Mr Tony Cornero during the co...

Ah G'day mate,
Greets from Melb.

Well, the cast base plate, frame and various parts have Middlehurst & Sons Sydney or M&S cast in relief. 3331 is stamped in the reel window frame and inside o...

Re: Aussie laws gone crazy

Sorry for the late response but would like to contribute my two (old) penny's-worth. Way back in the early nineties when I decided I wanted to buy old one-armed bandits - antique ones, not ex-club Aristocrats from over the border in NSW (I'm VIC), I sought advice from the Gov't gambling regulator an...

Re: Machines wanted

Hello Pete, Andy P here down in Upsidedownland. I have 13 antique Mills/Jennings/Watling & Keeney machines which sadly, due to loss of job have to be off-loaded. Probs not best for an arcade but if you're a collector of truly wonderful old slots mine are pristine, 100% ridgy-didge originals. Am barr...

Re: Morphy auction January 2017

Great to hear it arrived all well Mr treefrog and BP's right on the 'look'. Not sure why your's does'nt have a serial number as mine's in the casting by the Middlehurst & Sons cast. As for the colours; Am not 100% sure but Aussie slots were generally pale blue & grey. Still, gorgeous piece isn't it!...

Yeah, well this is the pub right?

Been a while ,,, the doctors simply wouldn't believe I was better now ,,, so I proved 'em wrong and had my book (Punk in the Gym) published. Ran a few coins through my old slots this evening and they played & paid perfectly. Mate dar'nt boozer says he has a 'really old, antique' slot he found in his...
