Re: Firmans

Yes missing. Probably when someone took reels off they forgot to put them back on afterwards. I also seem to remember a long time ago I got a mixed up bandit that had them missing in my younger days!!

Re: Firmans

Thank you for sharing what you have. The machine reels stop fast and then bounce on to another fruit. I notice the three adjustable tensioners are all missing that slow the reels down... Is that what they do as I am not an expert like many on the site? Also if that's what they do has anyone a set of...

My new buy... Maybe made by Firmans?

Topic merged - Site Admin. Just bought this one arm bandit yesterday. Wasn't paying out very well... Found the screw that holds the payout finders was coming out... but now sorted. It seems a bit of a mixture, ie the bottom casting is Egyptian Bell type and the top casting a diffferent Mills type? ...

Re: Can anyone make complete vendors for sweet allwins?

No not in commercial use. Enjoyed when the grandkids come down and odd times at a number of fund raising charity like school events. Backflashes range from brilliant to good acceptable...still sad a lot of you are pulling the old off to replace with a paper copy. I know there is a time for this but ...

Re: Can anyone make complete vendors for sweet allwins?

I have found personally the very opposite over the years. I have had many Oliver Whales sweet allwins in distressed states... some even with no vendor as they have been robbed for parts. Have interchanged Fruit Gum vender to a Win a Gift even. I can only speak for what I have had and the dimensions ...

Re: Can anyone make complete vendors for sweet allwins?

I have a six-sider all different sweet Oliver Whales and all the vendors interchange easily except the Win a Chew where the pull bar has less travel and indeed the payout cup area is a little smaller. I bought a vender inside from one that advertises the new Neapolitan choc payout allwins. He sold m...

Re: Can anyone make complete vendors for sweet allwins?

Hi goodpenny!! It's only 4 small screws that hold the complete vendor part. I have switched odd ones over before from other variety sweets especially when doing an odd charity fund raising day in the past with the machines. As you will know yourself they are only made out of like tin and soldered (y...

Can anyone make complete vendors for sweet allwins?

Hi, I have a number of the Oliver Whales Win A Sweet type allwins but would love a complete vender I could install to vend the penguin chocolate biscuits instead. Looking at the Oliver Whales vendors surely someone could make a lot of money making and then selling the different up to date vendors fo...
