Incredibubble Gameswat ........

How have you contained yourself waiting for that lot to arrive? You must have forgotten what was there.
That consignment alone outstrips most of our collections.

I'm willing to bet the pipe organ thingy that Stuart asks about is a machine stand.

The Trainers fascinate me, we tend to see them individually lying by the side of the road.

Hey Slot, that pipe piece is a jukebox extention speaker made by the slot company Keeney about 1939/40 i think. I have a sneaking suspicion it's been tampered with a little or it could be the junior model? Later I found the design patent which shows an added section below what i have that shone light up onto the pipes. It's a rare piece though as a hardcore juke collector/ dealer friend in the US hadn't ever seen it when I stumbled on this one. He's since found a complete version which really looks killer. If mine has been tampered with maybe I'll replace the missing parts.

Still sore and aching after unpacking and moving all those machines but maybe will head out to the workshop tonight to start really looking over a few.......where to start though? I know, the French Josephine Baker roulette in stunning original cond that I eventually talked someone into selling me after first playing in 2007!

Thanks Slot, very bloody useful! It's funny but the photos of messed up machines are usually a lot more helpful because you can see what's going on under the paint etc.

Wow, some nice looking machines there....and two Brenners. The Stock Broker looks nice.....

I assume the lack of coin cups and some triggers was for shipping purposes

Yeah Tree, I pack like Tetris, I don't like to either waste space or chance damaging anything fragile /semi-fragile like coin cups or triggers etc.

Believe it or not I went out of my way not to buy much on this trip.

Thanks lepingouin, great advert! And amazingly I just shipped home a set of alloy Roovers legs in this load but they are the short version for a stamper (dammit - shaking fist) . The long legs that I'm sure these were copied from were only used on the Roovers automatons like the Puss in Boots so they are really rare. I have the cup thanks, but I am missing the token chute and the coin return chute to the cup. If you have one then a few pics would be great to see how they should look, or better still the spare parts!! This machine is in truly lovely original condition all over, the mech needs a full clean as it's jamming with old grease but otherwise very nice. cheers ,
