Hope you like them. My personal favourites are the 'Spamet' slot stands & covers!

Re: Bandit knob restoration

Nice knob.
I restored a 60's pinball last year, & spent far too long cleaning my balls & polishing my knob.

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Must admit, Steve's not been my favorite person over the years, but you do have to feel for him. To lose his Mum & then his Dad getting ill too, on top of the shite year that everyone's had must be horrible. Always remember Gloria from Steve's Huntingdon auctions, always with a glass of whisky n...

Re: Mills Hi-top

Truly great work on that machine **xXx** The standard Hi-top is a classic but there are a few rarer hi-tops out there I would really like to own, the "Hi-Top bonus" looks so compact and just "right" somehow and includes the BONUS mech as well, that would be my second choice A Hi...

Re: Am I missing something here?
