Re: Mystery Metal Label Stamper

Interesting photos Jerry, do you think the machines 'instruction' sheet is original, showing the '10 letters 10p', if so presumably BAC were still manufacturing or at least supplying them in the 1970s to a design that looked 40 or 50 years older. Interesting styling, the machine in the York, with it...

Re: Mystery Metal Label Stamper

I can also remember the one at Paignton, I stamped out a name on its aluminium strip for a model sailing boat, this would be around the late 1950s to early 1960s, those strips were damn sharp at the ends, nothing like a bit of good old fashioned danger to make a kid aware !! There was also one sitti...

Re: WW1 and WW2 related machines

Just read John Peterson's article on the Khyber Pass, and would commend this to all who have an interest in slot machines. Johns erudite easy writing style always gives the reader much more than plain information and remind me of Alistair Cookes 'Letters from America', the articles are always intere...

Re: Veteran slots from Brighton Pier discovered!!!

Terry, I think your absolutely right about collecting those machines we had fond memories of playing as children and I believe that we will not see our machines full potential value (money and intrinsic) until they become real antiques, say 50 - 60 years time, by which time quite a lot of us will no...

Domino, Lucky Dice, Juge de Paix, Roll Out the Barrel etc.

Last time my wife went to a birthday party with a camera, the prints (this was some time ago) revealed the Chippindales ! Good job I didn't get them printed. However, back to slotting, the graphics certainly look the same in your photo and the cabinet looks far more convincing than the ebay one and ...

Clement Bandit

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin. Interesting item on ebay at the moment, an English bandit called 'Roll Out The Barrel' item 200112805066. Has anyone seen this or anything like it before? Or did 'Mr Clement' cobble this together in his back yard in 1958 (or last month) from Jennings or Mills ...

Great idea Pennymachines to have an online picture gallery. Over the past year or so I have learnt quite a bit about allwins etc just by looking at photos/paperwork and comparing them with the machines I have. For instance, I have just converted my Bryans 10 cup from new penny to old. I had suspecte...

Re: Vintage Coin-Op Collectors' Spring Show and Auction

Well done Jerry and Badpenny for organising what must have been quite a logistics exercise. There are many of us out here that appreciate such dedication and if it were not for just a few keen enthusiastic people the slot community would not be. I enjoyed my visit to Sarratt on that warm sunny day a...
