Re: What screw size was used for the Mills Escalator

For example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bolt-Thread-Fastener-Gauge-Line/dp/B01NCANLCK/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3...

Not really, but you know people will go where the machines take them. Particularly if they scent a bargain!

Re: Win an Aero

I agree with Widget, I'd have bid more if I had his sandblaster. I'm trying to set up a baking soda blaster but I don't have anywhere that can handle the mess. :#: Good call, Paul. The one and only time I used my soda blaster was when sprucing up my Novomat (I started on this with a view to learnin...

Re: Arcade Photographs

......Yet again no mention in the report of the impact of the change in the law in 2007 allowing the bookmakers a spectacular advantage over amusement arcades.....

Re: Isle of Wight Shanklin sale

I live within sight of the IoW and even have my own boat to get there. Forgot completely about this auction! Having read some of the feedback, though, I am quite pleased I did as the two machines I would have been interested in sound like they were duds.

Re: VINTAGE slot machine website changes hands

How do I know when my registration as a member is complete? Or is this a work-in-progress? 3. Why am I asking these questions from PennyMachin...

Re: Beware the Elephant House Auctions

Six months? Unreal. In your shoes, I would have assumed the machine is gone and had them in the Small Claims Court ages ago. Trouble is, whilst I get the impression that criticism is nothing other than water off a duck's back to EH, I am not sure that is entirely fair. EH is a business, the purpose ...
