Re: Jennings Club Chief 1960

Exactly, when you said you'd checked, I thought you meant inside the tube/pay slides. If the horizontal fingers aren't being tripped by the vertical fingers then the chances are the weight of the slides is still pushing on them.

Re: Identifying this machine

Weekends spent hiking around the Basque villages uncovered where old pre-war flipper less pinballs went to die. I must have seen hundreds. Mostly...

Re: Fremont Hotel Mills High Top

Looking at the pay out disc for reel one, can anybody else see additional deep grooves as per Gold Award pay outs? I believe I can. If so, has anyone seen a Hi-top with Gold Award? I haven't. So, with melons where there shouldn't be, a confusion of denominator and my cloudy/watery eyes convinced it ...
