Re: Caille Ben Hur

The intention would be to stop squarely on a symbol. However ... If you look in the back at the large Star Wheel which attaches to the back of the wheel seen from the front, you will notice it is quite roughly cast and that some of the gaps between the teeth are probably tighter than others.

They soon disguise themselves with grease and oil, and find their way into a space that halfway through the...

Re: Queen's Platinum Jubilee

The Red Arrows live just down the road, and their playground is directly above Sally's house. Apart from when they go and live in The Mediterranean to play in the sun, we get to see them nearly every day. Even when they've been on a display in UK they return home and use up any coloured smoke they'v...

Re: Repost due to spelling error Duchess

Does anyone know what part of the mechanism stops the handle being pulled without putting a penny in? There isn't. The German Günter Wulff mechanism always descends when pulled. The entry of the coin engages the handle with the mechanism, once the game is played the coin is pulled through the gate ...
