Kick Him in the Panzas

Hi, coppinpr, bit embarrassed to send you this, but you did say you liked pics! This is my first attempt at repairing a penny machine and it was a doozy. My father pulled the remains of this one out of a bombed out pub in London in approx 1946 then put it in the garage where it had been ever since. All that was left was the pin back board, badly charred, the two money tins, bent to hell and part of the imaging, also charred. I pieced it back together again from Dad's description of what it used to look like, downloading sympathetic images from the internet. Still working on it, it is a very amateur attempt and still needs two front plates (triangular bottom right and left) and a 3d sign. By the time I found a new cabinet for it, I was hooked and tinkered with a couple of other machines since. Mei-mei

Now that is interesting.
Thanks for posting.
Is this one of those machines whose theme was updated to reflect the anti Hitler sentiment.

If so, what was it before? :!?!:

ps - 3d play was expensive in the 1940s that must have been about a £1 a go.

Hi, Thanks for your comments. I wish I knew more about it. It is difficult to tell who the machine was made by as all relevent info was burnt off. None of the original case survived so no serial numbers or makers name. Judging by the quality of the image, it did look as though it might have been superimposed at some point, but again I can't say for sure. Do you know anything of the history of these types of war time machines? I would love to see some more images to see how they compare. The date 1941 is a guess as the last digit was missing, only had for sure 194?.

P.S sorry forgot to say, I believe it was a penny machine originally, judging by the spacing of the pins, but I could only find chutes for a much smaller coin so I made the sizing for the old silver 3d coin which works quite well.

Interesting jackpot payout that I don't remember on any English machine. Mei-Mei do you happen to have any photos of what your father salvaged and you started with? As there may be clues that meant nothing to you but we might spot. thanks.

There are several other Hitler (and I think Tojo) related machines. Here are two:

Mr P is currently having a session with Nursey, and won't be fit for anything until cocoa time.

I think you're referring to the above?

The technique to capture a picture from the middle of any web page is: -
* Make sure the bit you want to isolate is viewable on your screen. If it's too big try choosing "Full Page" from Settings at the top of the page. Alternatively you can also Expand/Shrink the page contents also in Settings

* So, now you can see your object press the key marked "Print Screen".
* Now open MS Paint and press CTRL/V or "Paste"
* You'll now be looking at the whole of the page you saved from t'interweb.
* Click on "Select" from the menu at the top and highlight the bit you want to isolate, cut it out and save it as a new Paint.doc

Job's a good un !THUMBS!
