Re: Time to ........

I bought this B.M.CO machine awhile ago needing light restoration (been stored approx. 30 years ago). Slight downside for me is that it's on 1/2 penny coins. Still a nice find. It works perfectly.

Onr arm bandit that pays out golf balls

Hello everybody,
about 25 years ago I seem to remember a Jennings bandit that paid out golf balls. I am not a bandit man - but am almost sure that they exist. Please can someone confirm this, or am I going loopy?

Re: Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

RE lifeline, the clips are hidden behind the scenery. Besides the painted glass there is also the painted backboard. The clips are the backboard scenery - all very clever. Has anyone else got this machine? I was told years ago that J Gresham had one, but the glass was broken in transit to the States...

Re: Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

Re the Lifeline, the reserve feature on this machine is as follows: a clip is either side of the lighthouse; this holds a penny -- all other pennies go into the cashbox. When a coin goes into the win (at the top of the lighthouse) it pays out all the coins i.e. 1 , 2 or 3. The payout cup is just a b...

Bollands / B.M.CO The Lifeline

A machine from my collection. Had this a few years. I guess it dates from the 1920s. Apart from waxing the cabinet, nothing else done to it. This is a coin/flick machine. I don't think many have survived due to the painted glass.

Re: New Polyphon Supply shocker identified

Hi all.
The coin entry I made, also the cashbox door. The top pediment was with the machine. The pictures were taken as I was assembling and waxing the cabinet. The machine was bought in Shropshire a few years ago in original condition. That's all I know of it.

Re: Harper’s Volta? Electric shock

Re Electric Shocker Machine, here is another one (until recently in my collection). I think they date from the 1900s. Also saw one in ITALY for sale a few years ago -- so there must be a few still about.
