Re: Which clown?

Thanks for the reply. I hadn't thought about the cabinet - but you are right, it is a much finer grain than my English machines of the same age. There are no PMWG stamps on the machine and I cant find any obvious serial numbers (where should I be looking?) One other question - the brass piston at th...

Which clown?

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin. I have just picked up this clown catcher today and after a couple of hours fiddling about the machine is now fully working. As you'll see from the photos it looks totally original - it has retained it's top pediment, is full of tokens and the payout slide is f...

Re: Mutoscope help please!

I did see the bandit but didn't pay too much attention to it. I think it was a Mills jackpot UK conversion on 1d play. It looked all original but I think the woodwork needed attention and overall would benefit from a good tidy-up. Other interesting lots were a fantastic original BMCo 24-cup and a Pu...

Re: Mutoscope help please!

Have you seen the youtube clip in the 'See It Operate' section? !THUMBS! International Mutoscope Penny Arcade Moving Pictures - Mechanism Explained Thanks for the reply - this clip is exactly what prompted my question.

Mutoscope help please!

Well I just got back from an auction today where I invested in my first ever mutoscope - a large round head "tinny". Having now got it home and had an initial poke around it seems to be mechanically complete and functional. However it hasnt got any wiring or lighting (the lamp holder is th...

I saw an ad recently which said that a vintage American 5 cent slot would work on the current UK 20p piece. Someone else also mentioned to me that a new 5p would work in the token payout of an early european slot.This all got me wondering which type of slot might be able to operate on current UK cur...

Re: I need balls!

Hey Rivierakid, The balls I supply are all new and shiny but, if you let me know the dimensions, I may have some old wrinkly ones in my pocket somewhere. !SMILER! I do have some used/worn/dull ones which you can have for price of postage if they're suitable. Thanks for the reply. Since I posted my ...
