Hello and welcome, Rather than respond n multiple threads, some answers….. Glass for escalator window: just cut a piece yourself. Very easy with a cheap glass marker, ruler and some scrap glass. Lighting change: I assume you mean moving to LEDs. If so, I will not answer this one as personally I hate...

So I have about three of these machines and they all have Yale locks, like on many other allwins like Oliver Whales. Your lock may be a replacement, as it is silver and does not fit snuggly to the edges. There is a number on top and the Yale locks are numbered, I believe, 1 to 15. Are there any mark...

Over the years many of these and the other floor standing Bell Fruit machines have sold and often for very little. The appeal of these is the theme/glass with fighter plane and some may pay for this, but luck of the draw. A colleague of mine had a load of them and other similar machines, knocking th...

I would imagine, this would have only been relevant when the average payout had to be displayed, which I have no idea when this occurred, I am guessing some time in the 1970s, based on machines I have seen over the years. Given there was no minimum %, before this you could reduce to what you wanted,...

The later Aristocrats used clear reel tins branded Torq-lites and were made from a hard plastic (brittle). Prior to this they used a more robust black plastic and of course metal like most companies. I reckon 50% of the clear plastic ones I have seen damage, usually coming from the hub points where ...
Problem is Roger, for a lot of us in the U.K. we have never seen some of these fine early machines, as most have ended up being sold to US collectors and the few left in the U.K. are in very private collections. There are less places to see them in public, so we just enjoy what we can afford and hav...
