Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi all, What a Gold Mine, have attended 8 fetes & shows so far this year. Our customers really loved the Gold Mine, young & old. Last Sunday was one of the busiest days we have ever had in 22 years, we never sat down from 10.30 until 4.30. The Gold Mine is by far my best money taker. Didn't manage t...

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi The slots on the side only pay one, they seem quite hard to get but as the coin rolls along the table the table tilts to either side & the coin just rolls in. I find it very easy to win on. I have put a clip on Utube Pete.

Re: The Repair Shop BBC 1

Hi all,all that effort & did not clean the glass at the front. They are terrible machines to operate, customers always try & pull the handle down before the coin goes into the mech. It looks like it may have been used in a club or hotel Pete.

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi all. Finally got the Gold Mine on the arcade, great fun to play. We had to film it without the glass as the sun was reflecting off of it.

Re: The Repair Shop BBC 1

Hi all, The Win and Place had been in the workshop for some time. It was on the floor at the back. I think he made a good job of it. Sadly, the ball hammer won't last five minutes. I have tried soldering them in - they don't last long.

Re: Metal footballers, from a machine?

Hi The footballers were used on a fairground stall. The player put a penny on the slope, pulled back his leg and let go. If the penny landed onto a square you would win anything from two to six; if the penny hit on a line you lost. I converted one of these a couple of years ago to make the footballe...

Re: Gold Mine - Winter project

Hi all, just a few problems... Got all the wiring nice and neat, used one of the press on terminal blocks - bad mistake - it melted. This lead to the solenoid being burnt out. Got it all back together again and let the grand kiddies have a go. I gave them about 100 coins each, they had great fun. Th...

Re: Hi from foggy Oxfordshire

Hi Martin, welcome to the forum, would love to see a photo of the Pyramid. I think the Pyramid is one of my favourite games. Was it originally on one old penny? Pete.
