Re: Shefras Aero - Where to start?

I remember those choc dispensers at fairgrounds. If you were lucky enough to win one without paying at least double the cost of the choc bar, you would find that the summer sunshine had melted it and the only cure was to take it home to put it in the fridge for about an hour to solidify. Then you t...

Re: Jennings jackpot lever

The Jennings was a mean machine when it came to winning jackpots. Odds of 7999 to 1 of hitting it. Most of the Mills and Sega machines had 2 (and sometimes 3) jackpots. If your club or bingo hall had a Jennings, you could wait literally for weeks before seeing it happen... and it was usually someon...

Re: Mills wing nut gone missing

I needed mine for the reel brakes. I changed both parts just in case the wing nut was metric and the bolts were imperial ...

Re: Tool to adjust reels

My Sega reel clamp bolts are hex head but also have a screwdriver slot in them. They don't need to be tightened really hard like wheel nuts and I find it easier to stick a screwdriver down there instead of fussing around with sockets and a long extension.

Re: Unusual machines

Yes BP, Mad Magazine did steal the face, but so did Caille, proven to date at least back to 1894 according to this Wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_E._Neuman Sega Mad Money also had him on the reels but in America, there could have been trouble for copyright reasons.

Re: British One Arm Bandits

The Bell Fruit club machine boasted on the front panel: "The world's largest auto drop jackpot". It looked nearly 3 times wider than the Sega and Mills jackpots and might have held about 300 6d coins. Does anyone know how much could drop from the enclosure? (Assuming it is full).
