Re: Cheapest Steeraball Ever

oh man I'd take a Win a Lot even without the top box.
If anyone has one they'd part with, I'd pay the ridiculous shipping charges. Probably my favourite of the British pinball-style gambling machines I've seen.

Re: Niche Collections

Come join us at pachitalk if you have question on it!
Can you post a photo of the center feature below the number grid? It's blurry in your photo.
Does yours work OK? I own 2 myself (in the lineup next to my Win A Spangles) and I really enjoy them.

Re: 'Travel Round the World' pinball on ebay

Batteries were really popular in 1934 pinball machines and by 1935 manufacturers were trying kind of wonky layouts like this one.
