Re: Sad Story regarding Mr Slot

I have only ordered one item from him, many years ago a Mills slot machine manual, which had been photocopied so many times it was illegible and went in the recycling bin. There have been problems for many years and we have seen people ask questions on this site and more often over the years on the ...

Re: Double Diamond Allwin

Thought I would add a picture of another version a 20 cup giant Allwin of the Double Diamond De luxe. Looks to maybe have lights to indicate the prize selection in the corners. Nice looking machine and was on eBay for £500, then £1000 and then taken off, obviously an off site sale…. https://www.ebay...

Re: Peerless pictures viewers and nix sales fortune teller

Hi there, added the additional pics you shared before. They are certainly projects and, as mentioned before on Facebook, have a look inside the viewers to see if complete and condition, as obviously these machines have been stored somewhere damp. !THUMBS! If you search on this site you will see lots...

Re: Mills hi top

Token awards are not uncommon on Hi tops, but the fill slot on the side is almost certainly an operator modification and certainly not a factory option. You can see the crude tin top part to the gold award mechanism which has been soldered together. As you say, seems like a lot of effort for three t...

Re: Recent purchases

I don’t have a record facility on my TV, but did record on phone. Can’t remember name, it was a NI promo film for tourism filmed in 1959. That channel regularly shows quirky short films including many from BFI…… CA0DCFDE-E290-4D18-8D01-99319D095E3F.jpg The Ruffler and Walker hockey games were defini...

Re: Recent purchases

Well done !!CHEERS!! Wondered who bought them. I was considering a trip like my trip to the Isle of Wight, but then realised Northern Ireland is even more expensive to get to and now with added paperwork. When Once On The Square auctions in Belfast finally put estimates up, I decided I would be mad ...

Re: Gunter Wulff Arizona

You would have to share pictures of the problem parts, eg clamps. You could scan and get printed. One of our members on here offers this service and has a printer of the size to do. I would have to dig out the one I have and check its state, but may work. Www.endofthepier.com There are no guides oth...

Re: New Sega Diamond 3 Star on Old Penny Resto

Why not just restrict to 12 coin payout (more in keeping with the period), so just the two 2 coin slides at the bottom and two 4 coin above? Problem is finding a correct award. I bought a set of old penny slides at Colcon, from a Copper Star. They were much wider than standard, the same as 50c machi...

Cheap penny flick maybe BMco

I noticed a very cheap Test Your Skill penny flick that sold on eBay for £99, which I was unsure of at first, but looks pucker and maybe a BMCo machine. Very cheap at that price !THUMBS!

Re: New Sega Diamond 3 Star on Old Penny Resto

Obviously a mix of parts. The machine it is on I believe was never on old penny and only one in the range I am aware of was the Copper Star, which was limited to 6 x 2 penny slides, so 12d top award. You can see slides posts are a mixture of types and there are washers on at least one to raise the h...
