Re: Chromer

Hi Guy. Don't know where you live but I've always used these guys. Good prices if you don't mind waiting a few weeks for your parts. http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=collins%20chemical%20blacking&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CCwQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.collinsch...

Niiiiice Vendor!

I'm not really a fan of gum vendors but when this one popped up at Kempton this morning I couldnt really resist! Never seen a vendor with a goose neck coin entry before.

He carries a lot of allwin spares so you might be lucky. I've got a few spare payout knobs but not one for a R&W unfortunately.

Happy Hunting.

Terry.
