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...

It's simple, if you are keen enough you will attend.

I travelled over 150 miles (300 round trip) to attend the Huntingdon auction, I wanted a machine and it meant travelling........ end of story.

Thanks for that Bent Copper, will indeed try it. Just looked on Melvyn Wrights sight and saw the small picture of an award card, I had noticed a pin sticking out of the playfield of my 10 cup just under the first runner (see photo) and wondered what it was for - now I know. Where would we be without...

Bryans 10 Cup

I have a Bryans 10 cup purchased recently and have a question that perhaps someone out there could answer. I am aware that in all Bryans machines anything painted red is operator adjustable. In the centre of the 10 cup mechanism is a small lever held firm by a red screw. The lever is bent in slightl...

Re Philip Shefras? allwins

Interesting thread here. Dave, your Win a Gum looks exactly like my Fruit Polo, all the metalwork and the case, with the exception of the penny entry slot which is the same as an O.W. penny entry casting, although it is not set at an angle as mine is. How are the pennies collected in Win a Gum In my...

Re Philip Shefras? allwins

Thanks for the info Daveslot, few nice machines there. The cases look quite similar to mine but I can see that the metalwork is different. I have attached a couple of pics showing the inside of my machine and wondered whether O.W. could have produced the mechanism for another allwin producer of thes...

Not only do we live in castles but we are also healthy as most of our 'bathrooms' are still outside and at the bottom of the garden just like the one in the attached photo taken during last winter, note the door on the left, it leads to a typical games room.
