The Jets are finished

Hi all, Just finished the Jets - what a nightmare they have been, took me nearly 18 months off and on. The first hurdle was to design the jet so it catches the penny. The first jet I made was too big as the 8 jets were touching each other. After a few more attempts I finally got it right. The jets a...

Re: Waltzer tipper game

Hi All, there is a small bar to the right hand side of the cabinet which removes coins that have landed on the table into the coin box underneath. This is by far the best money taking machine that i have owned, players get 100s of goes for their pound every now & again one will land on the turn tabl...

Hi Francos,
A nice shooter. Is it electric? Do the ducks turn round?

Re: Wonders Tip It In

Hi All, took me ages to get a Tip It In, great machine to play with at home but no good on site. Sometimes the ball will jump out of the centre lever, people do not understand how it works. When you are really busy you haven't got time to explain to them how it works. Pete.

Re: My New Allwin

Hi Greg, nice machine. They are a nightmare to get working right as the penny does not know what fin to go in. I have had four automatic pay outs and couldn't get any of them to work right. I had to put them back into auctions. Hope you have some luck with yours. Always check the shim underneath the...

Re: Waltzer tipper game

Hi All, Thanks for liking the machine, it had a good bashing this weekend. It's just a great machine to watch & to play with. The clowns heads are made of solid brass, I used some thin sheet brass to help the coin get onto the play field. I was at Kineton scout fete on Sunday when a gentleman came u...

Re: Waltzer tipper game

Hi Jerry, nice to hear from you. Hope you are doing OK in your arcade. The Smithy is one of my best machines but has been overtaken by the Walzer. The Walzer had a good airing at the weekend - it has taken a lot of weight off the other machines. Pete.

Re: Waltzer tipper game

Hi Jerry, long time since we spoke, hope you are keeping well. Still got the 5 win working that I bought off of you about 15 years ago. The answer to why it's battery is because we do a lot of schools & they don't like traders using electric or generators. It's very eye catching when you see the lit...

Re: Selling slot machine collection - liable to capital gains?

Hi I think it depends on how many machines you have & how long you have owned them. Can you post a few photos & i am sure somebody can help you with the price Pete.

Re: Waltzer tipper game

Hi all, pleased you liked my latest machine. It took me best part of twelve months to make two of these & two other machines which when finished will be called the Jets, same idea as the Walzers. I took the Walzer out on Saturday, what a great machine everybody loved it young & old. You get great va...
