Re: Small turned metal parts

Put some drawings on here and people will then know what skills they need. I’m an engineer with a couple of mills and lathes, but I like to see drawings before I say anything about how easy or difficult they would be to make.

Re: Caille Ben Hur

Do you think it’s a genuine Caille or could it be a Clement & Whales machine? What casting numbers should I be looking for?

Re: Caille Ben Hur

The case seems to have had a veneer added at a later date as under the top window, where I have removed it, there is no veneer and you can see the original mahogany finish.

Caille Commercial

Topic merged - Site Admin. Ok, so I’ve just picked this up from an auction house. Bit tatty on the outside but the mechanism works fine. Does anyone with experience of these machines want to give me any help in what to be aware of when taking these apart and reassembling? Does anyone have the artwo...

Re: It's Slick

I'm the new owner of the Slick flyer - which is really the first piece of original advertising I've actively gone after and been excited about.

Re: BDR bandit intricacies and cash box

I had never gotten to the bottom of its purpose. Another slotty mate explained that if you pull it out it dumps the contents of the pay out tube out of the bottom of the machine and through a hole and into your hand (if you put it there).
