Re: Bally Electro Mechanical owners

The "Money Honey" types seem to be the rare original ones. They should have a separate, small payout tray about the size of an ashtray (as opposed to most of them which span across the width of the door and form part of the casting). I think it was bolted to the wooden case below the door....

Over-restored Elevenses

I found this advert on the Pinball Heaven website. As much as I appreciate the amount of work that has gone into the restoration I do feel it has been "Over Restored": http://www.pinballheaven.co.uk/shop/books-and-collectables-bryan-elevenses-classic-allwin-p-2062.html They do sell a few p...

Re: Powells Automatics

Powells have been going for absolutely ages. They still get a lot of trade from seaside arcades and casino slots.

He got me the original glass for a Jubilee Golden Falls, plus the surround strips - all chromed.
