Re: EH / Collector Connector sales

I was sceptical at first, but it seems the format tends to stop the absurd price escalation we've seen on eBay of late. Affordable allwins have been a thing of the past for years, with even recent builds attracting prices which would only be achieved by good historic types. Yes a BMCo Allwin sold f...

Re: Prices Night Light vending machine

Price's Night Light vending machine

I forgot to add this vending machine which sold in September at BBR for £1100 plus commission. Don’t remember seeing it in the results page, but a cute little machine obviously designed for the hotel market. From the British Automatic Supply Syndicate Ltd

Re: Rusty Sega

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...

Re: Allwin Double Your Money

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...

Re: Still need a 1p S10 Mechanism

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...

Given there was no minimum %, before this you could reduce to what you wanted,...

Hopefully others with donate and help it to grow.[/quote] As a matter of interest, where is this public archive in the U.K. !PUZZLED! or are you referring to thi...
