Re: Star Warehouse, Camden Market

Jimmy leased a small square single room building with ladder up to an open attic above right next to the archway where everyone had to pass by to enter the market at Camden Lock. It was a bottle neck outside his door and had huge footfall. I sold him a Cat and Mouse SWP (skill with prize) machine wh...

Re: My thing with slots

Jimmy Broderick was a real character, if he didn't want to sell you a particular machine, and you asked the price, he'd say "Oh that's not for you, thats way up here ( and held one arm right up in the air)" to emphasise just how much out of your price range availability he thought it was!

Three Crompton's Shooters, and none of them the usual 'pussy'. That's rare.
Another couple and you'd have a full set, 'Dem Bones' missing.
The Big Game 'shoot between the eyes' a bit too controversial to operate, but aiming at Native American Indians still a grey area. !SAINT!

Re: Have you seen what we mustn't talk about?

Nobles have some big storage warehouses up there. They used to be packed full of all kinds of amusement machines and used to have periodic clearance sales advertised out of Coin Slot that I went to, row after row of good stuff they'd operated. Now they've sold out to Admiral I guess this is them cle...

Re: Dozer pusher

The 'lost hole' is very cleverly disguised by the name plate overhanging the play field right at the front. Underneath that is a little flap that periodically raises and lowers to pinch overhanging pennies allowing them to fall down into the cashbox. It does it without raising any suspicion at all, ...

Re: Dozer pusher

IMG_0358.JPG Bryans Penny-Go-Round pusher. The arcade has not re-opened yet, I have still to set up the machine properly, make a solid concrete pad for it to sit on and then it can be fastened back to the wall.

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

You can see how many members read posts but hardly ever make comments. I think it's important to say how enjoyable it is to read the detail and see the images of quality restoration work such as GW's when it's posted, as the time taken to share this valuable knowledge and the effort and time taken t...
