Sega problem 2

Topic merged - Site Admin. In addition to the other problem I was a little aggravated by the handle being loose so thought I'd tighten that while I had the mech out, not realising that the bolt I was tightening was not the problem and its reaction to my effort was to snap. From what I can see it fi...

Sega problems

I took a Sega and a Jubilee Riviera on exchange and promptly stuck them in Ebay masquerading as something on a bandit stand. Sold them both and was just putting a few coins through to make sure all 100% before shipping and the Sega has jammed. After inserting coin it drops into escalator on the firs...

shpock

don't know if anyone has had any success with this "boot sale app" as it is advertised. You seem to be able to list without restriction and although it is aimed at the local market, if you search it will give matches further afield, much further afield............... I thought this was interesting h...

Re: BAC Medicine Vending Machine

There was something very similar on ebay last year and I formed the opinion it was probably originally sited in a hotel foyer in the way that stamp and even postcard vendors were.

Re: King of Clubs Coin Mechs

Interesting, I'll for check for both those. He did mention the 1p coin mech was jammed with coins because he thought he could fix it by just chucking more in so I think I'll start with that when it comes back.

Re: King of Clubs Coin Mechs

by a process of elimination of me looking at photographs and relaying to him what to do over two and a half hours - he is a complete novice with no mech or elec skills - we have ascertained that the coins are dropping straight through once they have gone into the coin slot almost like a trap door in...

King of Clubs Coin Mechs

I have sold my King of Clubs and now it's arrived at its new home via courier it has decided to stop working. I am struggling to get photos from the guy at the moment but want to post this asap. It has three coin mechs, 5p and 10p which act simply as change givers. If you put a coin in nothing happe...

Re: Unusual 1975 German wall machine on ebay

oh, my brain has caught up now, I didn't read Paul's post properly so assumed he was the new (proud??) owner, hence my comment on it's well traveled history. Still a bloody awful looking machine though, good luck shifting it.

Re: Unusual 1975 German wall machine on ebay

I'm not sure this hasn't been in Harold English's hand at sometime. He had a habit of sticking the new coinage next to the slot (if that is new 1p, I can't tell from pic) and of typing up "words of one syllable" instructions too. Not sure the "fiffikus" doesn't derive from "pfiffikus" which can mean...
