The top glasses on these are screen printed on glass. With patience and a steady hand, these can be very effectively replica...

Re: How to date a Bradley's Challenger?

Another indication that this is an early model is the number '6' in the middle position of the centre casting. Later models had the middle column blanked as a loser and had a '0' on the casting: Re: Bradley Challenger and variants . This Challenger was mine for a while, purchased at Arcadia '87 Exhi...

Re: Long stored Mills mech reels don't spin

Re: Sapphire (Apex Amusements) bandit identified

Re-badged Aristocrat? I don't think so. These seem to be a unique product of Apex Amusement Co. Pty. Ltd. Trading from the 1940s to 1960 and based in Balmian, above Sydney, NSW, the company sold cloned or revamped versions of Mills' Hi Top, under the Apex name, before Ray Smith developed their dist...

Re: "Get Rich" penny pusher 1980s?

Welcome to the site gonzo! Forum member malcymal has mentioned this pusher a couple of times, but nobody else seems to have memories or pictures of it. He even recalls a single player version.
